Also, I don't know if I mentioned it, but the water retention is causing carpal tunnel in both my hands. I have to ask for help with a lot of things. Patrick is thrilled because I don't ask for help, ever. It's a thing I have and so now he feels good cause he can help me. My hands are constantly either numb or hurting, which is really frustrating. I have a glove for the right hand because it's worse, but it even wakes me up at night (although I would be up for the bathroom either way). But, Patrick asked yesterday if I knew it would be this difficult if I would have done it anyway and yeah I totally would have. I really have had an easy pregnancy until the last few weeks and I only have until June 11 (allegedly).
I went to see Avengers and loved every minute of it. Well the hands are giving out, but I wanted to check in with everyone.
I started throwing up (etc) about 7 last night and I could finally keep water down about 4am. Then around 1pm I tried to take a shower and almost passed out. Apparently when you can't eat or drink anything your blood sugar drops. I have not been that sick since high school. I don't know if it was food poisoning or a stomach bug , but I am still so weak.

On a somber note, my neighbor that has had cancer for years just got moved to hospice. The cancer has gone to her brain and the drs. say she has maybe a month. Before I got my full-time gig I used to take her to water therapy (she has really severe arthritis, too). When I took her the first time, they were like oh you have help go get changed, so I helped her get dressed. And take her to get groceries or go get them for her, just whatever she needed. And I learned how to give shots, that was kinda fun though. I had taken her and my friend Jack, who was kinda homebound, to raise. Then, I got my full-time job and met Patrick and couldn't take care of them much anymore. Jack understood, we went by the day we got married in between our wedding and reception and he passed shortly after that. But, by that point she kind of expected me to do that stuff and she was mad that I "wouldn't" help her anymore. She actually told me she "guess(ed) I just forgotten about her then". I have said bad things about the way she treated people when I have no right to judge, but I just don't think I can go see her. I want to go visit, but it reminds me of my mom and I just am not that strong. I don't want her to think I don't care, but I just can't. I'm going to try calling her and sending cards, but I just came home last night and cried.
Sorry, didn't mean to end all depressing.
I have made the biggest knitting accomplishment since I learned how, I was inspired by Samilia's(I don't know how to make the names all highlighted, it's been a while since I last did it) wristwarmers so when Mawy was over on Friday she helped me pick out a pattern and I now have learned how to circular knit and how to cable and I have an awesome pair of wristwarmers! Yay!
Also, we went to middle of nowhere Virginia on Sunday and drove around for 3 or 4 hours. It's a long story, but we saw buffalo and zebra. I kid you not someone had zebras for pets or Patrick said maybe livestock. Okay 1, where do you get zebras? Is there a catalog, do you need a special permit. 2, if they're livestock what do they do? Can you ride them, milk them, or (eww) eat them? We really thought his mom had lost her mind when she said "hey, look zebras". Also we were in a "town" that was so small the people in the car from Tazewell were mocking it! I swear I was not drunk and had not consumed any non-prescribed drugs and their were four other people who saw it too.
Oh Rachelle, if you see this before you leave to come up here could you bring Love Hina 3, 4 and 5 or however many. I really like it.
