Picture Day 3/6

Well, I thought I could accomplish two things at for the Picture Day meme over at Sited and Blogged. And also to post one of my newest scrap pages (new hobby of mine...very addicting!)

I think the journaling says it all. It says "For your third birthday, Aunt Courtney thought it would be a good idea to get you markers. You had a blast your first time drawing on paper and yourself. Even though the package says they are washable, your art was on your arms for days!"

Quick update

Hubby is doing much better today. Now he is just fighting the swelling in his face and mouth. He is still pretty tired, but I think that is to be expected. Thanks everyone for your thoughts and concern. I think we are in the clear...I may even sleep in my bed tonight instead of on the floor beside him in the living room (I know, I know...maybe a bit overprotective, but...well I'm going to be that way for a while!)

I'm pretty tired too...can't wait for bedtime tonight!

Update to Stressed Post Below....

Ever heard the saying Hindsight is 20/20? At the end of my last post, I said I worry too much. Well...I don't worry too much; I worry for good reason. Probably about an hour after my post below, all h#$% broke out. My husband sat up and decided it was time to eat something and take his medicine. But before we could get that far, he said he didn't feel good...he felt a little sick and light headed. Next thing I know he fell over backwards and apparently fainted. I couldn't get him to wake up and he stopped breathing. He was rigid, he neck vessels were bulging, eyes were huge..pupils huge...I think he was trying to breathe.

I screamed and screamed at him to wake up...but got nothing.

That's when I called 911.

He started breathing, but it started as more of a gurgling sound. Then he finally came to and started breathing really fast...he had no idea what just happened. I made him stay still until help got here. 3 firemen and 2 paramedics showed up. They checked him out and said he was ok, a little pale and blood pressure was a little up, but otherwise ok. But just to be safe, they took him to the hospital.

While there they gave him an IV for fluids and morphine for the pain and just let him sleep. We got home about 4:30 today. Thankfully, his mom has come down to stay with us. I just couldn't bear the thought of being here alone again. She's going to stay with him tomorrow while I go to work just to be sure.

I think he's ok now. He eating Jello, drinking water, talking and feeling much better. I'm pretty sure we are on the way to complete recovery.

This was the scariest thing I have even been through. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have nightmares and maybe need some therapy. I told the paramedics that I thought they should treat me for a heart attack after they were done with my husband.


My husband got his wisdom teeth out today. And now, while he is blissfully snoring away, he has no idea how stressed I am. I had to listen to and remember all of the instructions we received form the oral surgeon. Next I had to go the pharmacy and pick up four different kinds of drugs and listen to their instructions....take pain killer with food, but don't take antibiotic with milk products...but somehow take them both at the same's he supposed to do that...he can't feel a thing?!?!

Not to mention the gauze I have to change.

Did I mention, I'm not a nurse...I have no idea what I'm doing! I had mine out, but I also had a broken jaw, so I was in the hospital while recovering.

So, do I wake him to do all this or let him sleep? At some point I'm thinking he's going to wake up in some major pain!

Poor guy...I know it's going to hurt. But I'm STRESSED too!

I worry too much!

What are my goals for the week? Hmmm...that can be a tough one, because I'm not one for really setting specific goals. But when forced to do so, I usually meet my goals...huh...maybe I should do it more often!

My biggest goal this week is to get some homework done and turned in. I have 4 papers to complete and my last class is a week from Tuesday! So, if anyone is really good a history, please contact me with your rates tips ASAP!

Other than that, I just hope to make it through the week with my sanity in tact. My hubby is gone until Wednesday night and then Thursday morning he is getting his wisdom teeth out. Again...just hoping to get through the week!

What are your goals for the week? Post them here at Sited and Blogged!
