Let me give you a rundown of how I spent my time waiting for HL2...

About 1 PM yesterday my wife calls me from work saying she's not feeling great, and to pray for her. it seems since last Friday, her heart would "flutter" from time to time, and it made her a little worried. Given that she had a pinched nerve or something in her knee a few weeks ago, we were worried that a blood clot had possibly formed. So, we monitored it, but no real problems, until Monday.

So she calls me. We talk, pray, and then hang up. Not 5 minutes later, her boss calls me and says she's lost color, and in alot of pain, so I leave and take her to the hospital. We arrive at about 3:15 PM to the Emergency Room. The nurse at the desk listens to the problem, and immediately seats her in a wheelchair, and check he heart rate. It's 125. Normal is around 70... She gets her blood pressure, weight, insurance info, and gets her in the system quickly. This excites us b/c maybe they're going to see her soon. But.... no. We sat in the ER for over 2 1/2 hours while she had 2 more "episodes" where her heart began to race, and she lost color. Then, they finally move us to a room. 2 hours later, a doctor comes in. Seems there was a shift change, and we were forgotten... He orders blood work, and an X-ray anf cat scan.

They took blood, placed an IV, and took her off for an X-ray. About thirty minutes later, the doctor came in. He said they couldn't do a CT because they found the problem. She's pregnant.

So YAY! Rad (tim) is going to have another kid!








PS. please have a boy... please have a boy... please have a boy... please have a boy...

Only had girls so far or what? And congratulations and stuff like that. No, I will not mail you my plush squids. :)

Oh, and you quickly get used to the smell. Indeed, you soon learn to prefer the weird and indeterminable smells over the all too familiar ones of human waste products.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

WOW - what an odd sign of pregnancy.  How scary!!  I hope she's feeling better now.  As great as HL2 is, your news is much much better and more exciting!
