I hate being sick! It's not often that I get so sick that I don't do anything but sleep and just sit on the couch and stare into space. This week, I had two full days of it...Thank you Julie for taking Brinley for a night. Finally, I feel better and can get back to packing my house.
Friday, Julie and I took Brinley and Cody swimming at the Y. Those kids are like little fish! Then Cody spent the night and went to a primary activity with us. Cody was a little sad that his name wasn't on the table with Brinley's class, so it was added. They played a game about getting to know each other. When Cody was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up he said " a train driver". I think trains run in the Erickson blood...my grandpa worked with trains, my dad worked with trains, my uncles worked with and one still works with trains...go figure, he wants too also.
After having been sick this week, I was glad that no one else got it...then Sunday comes and my little Brinley girl gets the bug. Since I was substituting in Primary, she got to be home with her daddy.
Holy cow! Is it cold here. We got more snow last night and then the wind came and has been blowing all day. Our thermometer said 21, but it felt like 2. Tomorrow the high is 15, the low 6...don't you wish you were here right now?
We got our copy of the autopsy report and I sent my sister-in-law, Juli, a copy because she is a medical transcriptionist and could tell me what things meant. (thank you Juli!) she got it back to me today and we saw that her lungs were somewhat "flip-flopped", meaning that the lung that usually has two lobes had three and the one with three lobes had two. We also found that her liver had severe congestion, a result of poor heart function and that her umbilical cord, which should have consisted of three vessels, 2 arteries and 1 vein, had two vessels and 1 artery. I'm sorry if this is too much information, but medical stuff fascinates me. Matt hates when I watch any kind of surgery on TV.
Today is just one of those rambling days...
