I was getting pretty antsy last night... and thinking what a wus I am... that I had only been up here since Wednesday night. But, actually, it was Monday! So that is pretty tough.
We set up (I was supervising) my snack bar last night. I now have a mini fridge with fruit and Ensures... and trail mix and beef jerky and such. It is causing some concern in the Munchkin camp, as it is set behind a barricade and not accessible to them. Not good. My orders are (from the spouse) to drink 3 Ensures a day... to fatten up meself and me wee 'un. Plus this med gives me no appetite, so getting those calories will be good. The only problem is that they sound kinda gross to me right now. BUT I will cowboy up and guzzle them. Because I am that tough.

Didn't work on my quilt yesterday, but I shall today. Me and Mama may also try to figure a way to wash my hair. I currently have it in the most severe of librarian-stereotype buns to keep its greasiness far from me.

So that's the update. Oh, and the medicine is helping. I am still contracting, but it seems to be less frequent. Emotionally I think I am settling in. So there you go.


  1. and MPC I will answer your cerclage question here as it may be of interest to the general public as well.
    (you already know most of this)

    Cerclages are typically placed by the 14th week in women who have Incompetent Cervix-es (cervi??). IC is a condition where the cervix dilates without the woman ever feeling contractions or cervical change.
    A cerclage is basically a stitch that sews the cervix shut. It cannot prevent dilation. What it can do is warn the woman that dilation is happening, as she feels the stitch pull tighter. Then she would go on bedrest or contraction-stopping drugs. So it acts more as an alarm clock.
    Some people do emergency cerclages in late pregancy, but there is high risk of infection and it works on the same principle.
    Since I am aware of my contractions, and can even sometimes detect dilitation, a cerclage wouldn't be useful for me.
    So there you go.

  2. PHRASE: De reir a cheile a thogtar na caisleain!

    PRONOUNCED:deh rare ah kay-lee a hug-tar nah cosh-lawn

    MEANING:It takes time to build castles!

  3. Should I bring a milkshake or a hunger buster?

  4. I put some pictures on my blog, and I also changed the name to it.

  5. If you need to fatten up, then you should have a least one rich, thick, creamy, full o'fat, milk shake every day.

  6. Oh yeahhh. I McDonalds shake is 1200 calories or something ridiculous like that.

  7. Or, you could just consume whale lard to fatten up.

  8. Hey, don't knock Ensure! That stuff just about kept me alive for 2 months during my sickness in 2002. All I had was Ensures and a tuna sandwich each day for two months. My digestive tract couldn't handle anything else.

    Remember how yuck skinny I looked?

  9. Wow, I like whale lard too. Ever thought about dating a sponge?

  10. To be a mountain climber one needs to be in peak condition.

    I've been to the dentist several times so I know the drill.

    I couldn't quite remember how to throw a boomerang, but eventually it came back to me.

    Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He's all right now.

  11. hee hee
    those are funny, josharoo!

  12. hey, your baby looks just like mine..


  13. Cute? Cute is an understatement.

  14. You parents are so rediculousely in love with your child....

    YES.......HE is a cutey.....

  17. Mama Pam!!
    I saw the video J has on his myspace of your family worshiping in your living room to 'righteous.'
    That is So Sweet!
    Looks like you all were enjoying that. When was that video taken? Was Lindsey doing the videoing?
    How often do you all do that?

  18. some students are accused of "strange" behavior.
    some are checked for intoxication or drugs, but my first thought is sleep deprivation, dehydration, poor diet and/or overuse of video games and computer time creating "drug-induced-like" symptoms...

    seems to be chronic and academically and personally serious.

    what sayest thouest?

  19. Shannon,
    the link on Jess' page to your blog no longer works (cuz you changed the name?)


Jess here: if Blogger gives you problems, just click "Anonymous" and sign your name. Roll with the punches, folks...
