Good morning all. I merged the two threads, thanks for the report Tweety!
Joe, too bad the get-together was cancelled, but how miserable it would be for J to have gone, sniffing and sneezing? Hope he turns a corner soon w/allergies. Re: bluegrass music: I would be happy to send you one of our latest CDs of gospel music, done with bluegrass instruments (not necessarily all bluegrass music, though). Most are hymns or traditional gospel songs/music, done in our style. PM me the address to send it to, if you are interested.
Tweety, keep on keepin' on! Enjoy your weekend off!
BC, getting close to The Big Day!! Thanks for sharing plans and happenings with us, it's nice to (remotely) be a part of it all! So excited for you both! Love the fire pit gift, sounds like you will enjoy it!
Today is oldest ds's birthday, he is 32! We all went to lunch last weekend when youngest ds and his wife were out visiting. Oldest ds got his card and some cash in it. 🙂 I texted him a HB greeting for today.
He was a 9# 4oz baby, and I got "almost" 4th degree tears when he came out. My GP was delivering (at the hospital where I worked at the time), and I remember, after the baby was delivered, him leaning on my abd yelling "fundal pressure!!" 🤨 I think I lost a liter of blood. He called the OB/Gyn Attending to assist with stitching me up (which took an hour and a half). Yes I was lightheaded when I got up later! They tanked me up with NS and discharged me the next day (with iron supplements). Hgb was apparently just barely above the level required for an infusion. Obviously, I recovered. 🙂
I do recall an instance of typical nurse mentality. 😉 An hour after I had been in recovery area, the nurse came in with a wheelchair, to take me to my assigned room. Nurse: I'm here to take you to your room, come get in the wheelchair.
I sit up and transfer, and just got SO dizzy (didn't know Hgb at the time), I bent over to put my head near my knees.
Nurse: Mrs H, sit up
Me: I can't
Nurse: Mrs H, sit up
Me: I can't, I'll faint!
I hear her roll her eyes (really!! like, "i don't need this now! [we all know that feeling!!]) and grab another nurse to lift me and plop me back down on the bed. After they had infused me with some NS, I was able to transfer and made it to the room, which had the TINIEST bathroom: so narrow, it only contained the toilet and a couple inches clearance on each side (sink outside the little room). HOWEVER, because of all my stitches, it was helpful to have the walls so close. I could lean on one, then lean on the other for support, taking pressure off the painful sides one at a time, as I sat on the toilet! I know, I know: TMI!!! lol!
Dh is getting dialed into Zoom Sabbath School, I can hear them doing sound checks. I will finish my tea and take my vitamins and medications.
Y'all have a good day!
