Weekend Update 23


That’s my little nugget (apparently the size of a mango). Isn’t he adorable? The doc says that he is turning out “pristine” – in other words, no noticeable defects, or disorders of those that have been screened. Though after seeing this image of his face, I’m a little concerned he will come out looking like this:


Uncanny resemblance, no? Luckily the profile pictures are a little more reassuring.

I’m afraid I had a back-swing in my “pneumonia” since Sunday (sorry to those of you whose comments I didn’t answer, I plan on getting to you today or tomorrow), and I went in to see my doc on Thursday. He scolded me for not coming in sooner, and put me on another dose of antibiotics, saying next time – if there is a next time – he’ll do a chest x-ray. My OB was a bit put out, saying that pregnant women don’t get the care they need because doctors are too afraid of being sued. I should have gotten a chest X-ray before my FIRST dose of antibiotics, and certainly before a second. I am feeling frustrated right now. I just want to know what’s going on with my lungs and fatigue.

On a happier note, I’m participating in the 24 in 48 readathon this weekend (if I don’t end up sleeping the entire weekend). Here is my post with which you can follow my progress.

On the Blog

I published notes on Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 of How to Read the Bible, as well as a review of Don Quixote.

Next week, I have three reviews scheduled: notes on How to Read the Bible Chapter 4, a review of No One Cares About Crazy People by Ron Powers, and a review of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

Orphan Train and Code Talker were for my nephew, who had to pick two books out of a reading list for his summer reading. Because, yeah, he choose to go to a prep school where they do things like that. 🙂

  1. Orphan Train is a great pick for your nephew! I read it in a book club and everyone enjoyed it and we had a great discussion. The girl in it is quite relatable, even for a boy I believe. I hope you get well and figure out your fatigue. Your ultrasound is really neat even though there is an uncanny resemblance! ❤️
