Things in the stomach area were pretty much settled down last night. Aaron took the evening feeding so I could sleep all night. When he left for work - I was feeling good. But then I started getting crampy again, and I was like - NO! Well, it wasn't sickness cramps - it was another kind of cramp.
It's almost been a year! And I continue to feel like ass - but at least that explains why I needed the cookies so badly, and even continued eating them when I noticed they tasted a bit off.
It does feel good to be back in the land of the living... but we are having a bit of a family drama. My brother - who has not had the greatest last couple of years (foreclosure on his house, fired, bankruptcy) just got fired from his latest job. And was admitted to the hospital for 3 days because they were worried he was going to hurt himself. I talked to him today - he seems OK. We worry about him, obviously. But this is becoming a trend. And we certainly can't (won't, really) help him financially - he is really horrible about money and budgeting. Giving him money will just enable that. Hopefully this is the kick in the ass he needs to get things in order. Being fired from 2 jobs in 3 years must be some sort of a wake up call, right?
