Sick as a dog...


and definitely not looking as cute as my dogs! 

It has been a rough week - hence my lack of blogging, working, tweeting, & just life in general.  I was supposed to be in Florida right now - soaking up the rays cruising around Disney World... but I am not. :(  My doctor wasn't comfortable with me traveling.  Sparing several details, I have a severe case of anemia and it has wiped me out on my bootie harder than I thought it could.  But I am slowly feeling better.  I have a very special & thoughtful family who have really cared for me this week.  My sister, Kelly, jumped to my rescue with the doctors, my BIL, Jason, cooked for us, and my mom has done everything in her powers to make me feel better. (grocery shopping, staying home from work, and just being there)  I stayed at my parents house for the week and did absolutely nothing... I think it's just what I needed. 

To make matters worse, TL was in Florida with my dad and other sister this week.  He ended up tearing his ACL while wakeboarding (it's been a great week for us) and had to come home 5 days early. 

This whole thing has made me feel very fortunate to have good doctors, health insurance, & most importantly an amazing family!  TL has a long recovery ahead of him - we start that process Tuesday - and the docs tell me I should be back to my normal healthy self in about 6 weeks.  I've missed my blog :)  I'll catch up with everyone this week!

I am so sorry Tracy! I was severely anemic after I had my daughter... Pregnancy complications and a major blood loss kept me in the hospital off and for 2 weeks and months after I was so drained. I know exactly how you are feeling and it is no fun, especially if they have you on iron pills. Those are ZERO fun either. I am so sorry about your hubs too. You both take care of yourselves and I hope for a quick recovery to you both!! xoxo Thank God for good family and friends!
