Friday, September 19, 2008 - Update


I was in to see the doctor yesterday and it seems we might have narrowed in on the reason for my fatigue. I won't go into it until we get more definitive testing. . .which could be in about a month. Please pray that a cause is found and that I can begin feeling better. I can't really describe how bad it is. . .I wake up every morning more tired than I was the night before. I sleep and sleep and I still wake up completely unrefreshed. This condition, if indeed it is the cause, is treatable. So, it would be like me. . .but, with energy. Imagine the possibilities!

I have started reading a really good book that Casey got me started on. It's called Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. It's basically a love story between a young girl and a young man who is a. . .gulp. . .vampire. It is surprisingly a really good book and Olivia gets to hear a chapter of it every morning. It has been a long time since I have found a new author that I enjoy, so I'm quite excited. Plus, there are three other books in the series.

Olivia has started reaching out and grabbing onto my arm lately, which is something that she hasn't done. It's quite endearing. She also has to have a drink of whatever I'm drinking. I give her sips of water and she thinks it is the best thing in the world. Her tooth is still bothering her a bit, but she seems to be doing a lot better. Last night she also started scooting herself in her crib like she was trying to crawl. Of course, Ryan had to work until almost 10 pm and was disappointed that he missed it. Olivia just continues to amaze me each and every day.

Ooh! I've been wanting to start that book series! Probably not the best idea since my dreams are very susceptible to vampire influence. I can watch a movie, read a book, etc. about vampires and dream about them that night. Always been that way. I have dreams about vampires a lot actually. I wonder what that means...

Anyway, I really do hope the doctor has come up with the answer. You deserve to feel better.

It's so nice to hear about Olivia's developmental EXPLOSION! I wonder if I will even recognize her the next time I see her. :-)

See you both soon!

I've heard that book series is pretty good. I loved the show Moonlight so I would probably like the book. I think it's supposed to be similiar.

Love the new layout.

I hope you get a good diagnosis and that whatever it is easily treated!

My mom is loving the vampire/supernatural books, and since I read whatever she lends me I've been reading them too, most are pretty good.

Wonderful to hear about Olivia's progress, but I am not surprised, she is an amazing little girl =)!

The Twilight Series is Awesome! I've read all four and I hope you like them as much as I do.

The 4th one is a bit out there, but still an interesting read.

Anyway, I hope you feel better soon and hope the doctors are able to diagnosis your problem correctly and speedily!

I have heard great things about that series. I plan on reading the books soon, but alas, I am stuck reading children's chapter books. I need to take a break from them and read an actual adult book!!!
