Another day, another project. This is one that I'm excited about. Harry has gone to Home Depot to buy the materials to build an arbor for my rose to climb on. This is the rose that's so special to me - the one that lived through Katrina's devastation in New Orleans. I was prepared to buy an arbor but one that I wanted was really, really expensive. Harry offered to build one exactly the size and design I want. Once again I'm impressed with how truly blessed I am to have a life with Harry. The arbor won't be completed today because it's not a simple design but it's "in the making."
I'm a little worried about Sarah. She began being a bit nauseous and dizzy and went to the doctor. The doctor mentioned the word pre-eclampsia. I talked to her last evening and she's spent the day laying down but still felt dizzy. She goes back to the doctor today and promised we'd get a call when her doctor made any decision about what's happening. I'm so glad that her mother and father are in town. I can't imagine how panicked they would be if they were home in Wisconsin now. I have to believe that everything will be OK - that this is just a warning for Sarah to make the next weeks/days quiet, calm, and careful. Please think good thoughts or send up a little prayer for her and the baby.
Sarah's doctor appointment went well. She's home but has to curtail activity and do nothing but rest. In other words, she is to become a lady of leisure with her pillows and lots of naps. On a serious note, she seems to be doing OK - it's just time to reign-in and wait for the little one to make last minute preparations for his entrance into mommy and daddy's arms.
