I will do a real post at some point.

I know some of you are on pins and needles about the ticker in the sidebar. I've had a lot going on this week and will tomorrow as well so I'm not likely to get a real post done in the next couple of days. All that to say, here's a list.

* Yes, I am pregnant. 9 weeks. I've been to the doctor, seen the heart beating (the ultrasound pics came out too dark to see anything), and am hugging the toilet on a regular basis. Added to the throwing up is the exhaustion. I'm good for about 2 hours of activity a day. Yes, with the boys I was sick (lost 10+ pounds with Will & 5+ with Ben) but barely sick or tired with Ellie. So you can guess what I'm thinking about this baby. Yes, that means I was sick the whole time I was at the hospital with Ben. It just made the whole experience even more memorable!

* Ben's follow-up GI appointment was today. They believe it was an "inflammatory polyp." No known cause. Shouldn't come back. No need for screenings until his old. Some people get and some people don't. (For OBU folks the doctor reminded me of Amy Sonheim.)

* My niece, Addison Lee was born Sunday night. 7 pounds, 3 ounces. This is my brother's first baby. With both sets of grandparents within 5 minutes of her house, I think it's safe to say Addi is going to be well loved and attended to. = ) I've yet to see pictures but I'll let that go for now.

I think that's it for now. Hopefully I'll muster up enough energy and focus to write a real post before the weekend. I make no promises though. I still have pictures of Ben in the hospital. Maybe I'll get those up tomorrow. = )

Congratulations! I'm so sorry you are sick! This too shall pass. I was only nauseated with mine, only actually sick once I think. Not sure which is worse. Hugs to you!

Congrats! That is wonderful news! I also wondered about the baby ticker. : ) Sorry to hear you are sick - that is NO fun. I cannot imagine how that is with 3 little ones running around - Yikes! You can count on us to pray for you and your growing family.

Also, I am so excited to hear about your new niece (is this your first niece? I think all the others are boys, but could be wrong).

Yay! Congrats, I'm so happy for you! (Well, not about the sick part.) Praying it passes soon. I was suspicious when Joel accompanied Ben to the different procedures instead of Mom, but didn't notice the ticker until the other day.

Congratulations! I do hope you don't feel bad throughout the pregnancy.

And I'm so glad Ben's medical issue turned out okay, though I know it must not have felt like it during the ordeal.
