Flu Update

Well, I ended up at the hospital after all. I went in Sunday night. Thought the flu had passed and went to stay at my mom's - miles away from the sick house, where my husband and daughter were still hacking. But got sick there too, so much that I was concerned about the baby and my dehydration. It is all fine now. The fluids helped a lot.
Monday AM I went to my doc for an ultrasound and Trey looked so cute... he seemed fine so far. Of course, I need to scan in the photo... It's a scary sight to see the umbilical cord and what looks like a big knot in it.
I've monitored the heart rate throughout the sickness. Yes, it changed. Lowered. But now it seems normal.
I am keeping focused on my personal experience where I felt like the Lord said this boy will live. I need more faith! It's a daily push for it and working through it.

Even with reassuring kicks that remind me of this baby's presence, I feel so empty. My house feels empty every time I serve a meal.  I just feel like there are missing children, and I am left empty without them.

Sometimes words can't be found when trying to convey comfort to someone, so I just want you to know I'm reading and praying for ya.

I am sorry you had to go to the hospital. Are they looking at the knot in the cord more? I am glad you can feel him kicking. I am thinking of you and praying for you. Call me any time.

What is the deal with this flu? Everyone is crazy sick, and I'm so glad you went to the hospital. I am relieved and glad to hear his HR went back to normal! You are doing your best, and that's all you can do.

I can't imagine what you feel. I think that you are an amazing woman with an amazing family. I bet even though you can't see them when you are serving dinner, they are still there with you. I hope you all feel better soon and let me know if I can do ANYTHING at anytime!!
