This is what happens...

When you're sick for 2 weeks and don't venture into the pantry, several things happen. The pantry stays in disarray, and the onions, well, sprout. And grow long tentacles. Not to mention the rest of the house and the tentacles growing there.

I'm feeling better (can you hear the angel voices?) Thanks to the love and support of our friends and church family, Aaron had a fun week playing with various friends, and I got a lot of sleep.

I would never wish this sickness on anyone. It was horrible. I lost close to 10 pounds in the last few days, and although I'm not devastated about the number on the scale by any means, getting the stomach flu is not the ideal way to achieve a weight loss goal. And the time for weight loss is definitely not during pregnancy! I am so thankful that I did not have to go to the hospital for fluid replacement. Praise the Lord for electrolyte drinks, even by the teaspoon.

Hopefully you all stay healthy - Spring is coming!!

So glad you're feeling better! That illness sounded terrible!

Just don't wear yourself out by trying to "catch up" on everything at once!

Hooray! I have been praying for you. I had the stomach bug a week after giving birth - NOT FUN! God taught me so much that week but it was very trying for me. I lost ALL of my baby weight that week between nursing Michael (who absolutely thrived - don't ask me how he packed on the pounds but he did!) and not being able to keep food down. I hope that I don't have to experience that ever again! I am so glad that you are on the mend:).
