A Long Day

So, last night I started having pain in my chest. It was pretty acute at times but I tried to just brush it off. This moring when I woke up it was even worse. I was convinced I was having a heart attack. Sean went to a work party and he wasn't answering his phone. I tried calling tons of people to come watch Landon so I could go to the ER, but I couldn't get a hold of ANYBODY. By this time I was totally freaking out. I could barely breath and my heart was racing (most likely because I was freaking out). Eventually Sean called me back and I asked him to come home. When we got to the ER they ran tons of tests including blood work, EKG and a chest X-ray. We hung out for a couple hours. Landon was completely bored, Sean was starving, and the whole time I was sportin' the attractive hospital gown.

They were concerned that I might have a blood clot in my lung. But it turns out that I have what is called pleurisy. It is caused by a viral infection. It makes the outer lining of the lungs inflamed and it rubs together every time I breath which causes the pain. The doctor compared it to rubbing 2 peices of sandpaper together. Sounds like fun huh? Although painful, it is not serious. They prescribed some pretty strong anti-inflammatory meds and that should take the swelling down and relieve the pain. I am bugged that we went to the emergency room and it turns out there really isn't anything they could do. But at least my mind is set at ease.

Although it was a long day, Landon did bring a smile to all the people that came in our room. A couple nurses gave him a stuffed bear and a lollipop. He LOVED it. We couldn't get it away from him. By the time the lollipop was gone he had about half of it on the front of his shirt. Thank goodness it was yellow and not red!

Landon has figured out how to "scoot" across the floor. He is ALL over the place now. It is so darling to watch because he gets so proud of himself and always looks to us for approval. I am sure he will be crawling in no time!

San Diego

We just got back from visiting my family in San Diego. We had a really good time. One of my best friends got married and it was nice to be able to be there and support her. And as always, it was great to spend time with the fam. I don't get to see them as often as I would like so it is a real treat when we visit. I loved watching Landon interact with Grandma. Here are some pictures of our trip.

With cousin Gavin..."Help!"

I love my Grandma!

"Look Mom, no hands!"

Hanging out with Uncle Spencer and Uncle Donnie

The Newest Member Of Our Family

This is Jack. Sean's niece Taylee got him as a birthday present and couldn't keep him because her dad is very allergic to cats. They were going to take him to the pound because they couldn't find anyone to take him. So we decided to keep him. He is such a great kitty. Landon can tug and pull on him all he wants and Jack could care less. He likes to cuddle, but has his playful moments too. We are so glad we kept him!
