Speaking of pregnancy and babies, I heard from Semi-Desperate Housewife's mother. I've been a little worried about SDHW and hoping her baby boy stays put a little longer. (And also: waiting excitedly for the baby to be born and thinking about what I would name him if it were up to me.) Here's what her mom says:
I happened to click on your names from my daughter SDHW's post and saw that I could email you. There were only a couple of you who I could find the emails for. Just wanted to update you on her situation. She woke up Sunday morning so incredibly dizzy that she couldn't move without vomiting. She ended up in the hospital on IV fluids by Sunday afternoon. They did a CAT scan Monday morning because she wasn't getting better, but that turned out all clear. Baby is just fine, too. The diagnosis is that she has some weird viral inner ear infection that is affecting her equilibrium. Basically, she can't move without vomiting and hasn't been able to keep hardly any food down since Saturday. She came home Monday evening, but is totally confined to bed and is so dizzy that she just can't move and needs a lot of help walking to the bathroom, etc. We even have to keep Addy away from her because the jostling about of a toddler makes her so sick. This is apparently viral and will run its course in anywhere from days to weeks. PLEASE pray that it is only for a couple more days and that baby boy stays put until she is feeling more normal. Labor at this point would be torture!!! I know you check her post frequently, so thought I'd give you an update.
HER MOM :)
UG! And YIKES. Like it's not hard enough to be late-third-trimester pregnant, without also barfing from the smallest movement and worrying about pre-term labor. SDHW's husband is going to be posting an update soon, too, on SDHW's blog.
I keep waiting for it to be okay to write about Harry Potter without worrying about spoilers, but it occurs to me that day will never come. I'm thinking of how I'm only watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel NOW, so I'm STILL not happy if I stumble upon spoilers (though I can hardly blame people at THIS late date).
So how about this, instead. If you would like me to tell you which HP7 death I don't accept, you can email me and I'll tell you. There is one I in fact DENY. It DID NOT happen, that is my feeling about it.
This is the big hotness at our house right now:
Yeah. We know how to rock it.
