A Busy Week

Last Wednesday Dustin's grandfather passed away, and we started praying about how we could get back for the funeral, since we had just been up there less than 2 weeks before. God answered with a good friend giving us 2 buddy passes, which cost us round trip for both of us around $200. Then there was enough family there that we didn't need to rent a car, and we were able to stay with some friends of the family up there. So all in all it cost us around $300 to make the trip, God was in that for sure. It was really nice to get to see all of his family, we have a great time with them. We came back in the wee hours on Tuesday morning. Then Wednesday was Halloween and the boys were all superheroes (I'll post pics later). We drove an hour to see my parents' new house and took the boys trick or treating around there. It was a lot of fun. Brandt said this is the best night ever, well maybe after Christmas. lol He gets that from me, I LOVE Christmas! Then Thursday I went with Brandt's class and I took Brayden on a field trip to Dewberry Farms. It is really neat and about an hour and 15 minutes from their school. On the way there I started feeling bad, and by the time we left I was in excruciating pain. I drove about 20 minutes home and realized I couldn't drive any further. Thankfully, I had another parent with me, and she drove us the rest of the way. When we got back to Brandt's school Dustin was waiting to take me to the Dr. I hurt so bad I couldn't stand, sit, lay down, nothing. I was so miserable. My wonderful Dr fit me in, and gave me some vicodin, which is a wonderful drug. lol Because I am pregnant no one will do any scans on me to find out what is going on. They think it is either something to do with my kidneys or I have a herniated disc. So after a trip to the ER on Friday, there still is no diagnosis, but I am on bedrest, Vicodin, and a muscle relaxer. I have been feeling better, but today is pretty rough. It doesn't look like I am going to be able to work tomorrow again, and I hate using all my time up knowing I'll need it when the baby comes. I haven't been able to do anything, but Dustin has been great so far. Taking all the kids where they needed to go on Friday, making lunches, and dinner, doing the dishes, you name it. So if you would please pray for me, that this will heal on it's own since I still have 5 1/2 to 6 months before this baby gets here.
