I'm skipping some posts but I wanted to post this because today is actually my birthday. Things were tough today. Patrick has been sick and I took him to the doctor finally yesterday. By the time we got there his temp was 103.8 and he needed an injection of antibiotics and a dose of tylenol. The tylenol didn't even help much so I sat in the doctors office with cool towels trying to cool him off, while in the background Elena was throwing a fit over my phone. We were told he might have a possible UTI. So that was yesterday. Also, Jesus has been working non-stop on his daily job at KCSOS and his part time job at Henley's. They have been trying to get ready for the Grand Reopening. But last night he never came home because he was working all night. At 6:30 he came in and gave me a dozen red roses and kissed me. One of the many reasons I love him, the sweet little things he does.
So next stop, doctors office. Patricks fever was a little lower so the antibiotics seemed to be working but we wouldnt hear about the UTI until tomorrow. But I told her he had been coughing and she was worried he might have Pneumonia. She sent us (the kids and I) across the street for a chest x-ray. Unfortunately Elena couldnt go back to the room with us and they needed me with him. So I left and took Elena to Jesus at work and drove back to get the x-ray. The wait was about an hour long. Finally we got called back and the x-ray tech was so rude and had no clue how to deal with children. So after two attempts he seemed pleased and we left. Of course Patricks temp started to spike again so I picked up his prescription after a trip to Target where Elena threw several fits trying to throw all our stuff out of the car. When we got home he fell asleep and finally so did Elena. Peace and quiet. I started getting ready as Jesus got home and Surprise, there was Sara!!! Yea!!!!! I love when Sara comes to visit. Jesus and I got dressed up and headed to the Henley's V.I.P. party where there was great food and great company. I even got sung to and enjoyed a yummy cupcake which was exactly what I wanted instead of cake.
The day started rough but ended up being wonderful. To top it off, there were so many sweet messages on my facebook page. I feel so loved, and on a day like today I needed it more than ever.

I'm pretty sure I got arrested for being lazy.

This summer I started running because Marci Neville told me that if I wanted to get in shape I should sign up for something and train for it. So she encouraged me to sign up for the Volkslauf. So I was able to run over 4 miles without stopping and I felt ready for at least the running portion. Well, I think I could have pushed through the running part had it not have been for my bad mommy bladder. My wonderful sister and wonderful friend Lori stayed with me the whole time and kept encouraging me. I was not prepared for the strength part of it but next year, I will.
