Weekend Wrap-Up




Videos of the weekend will follow at some point when I stop being quarantined.
Why am I quarantined?
Because I came down with Strep Throat at some point early in the morning on Saturday. I managed to pull through for the weekend, but not before I exposed everyone around me to strep.
I know there is a collective groan coming up from the crowd. I feel terrible about it, especially if Robin comes down with it being 36 weeks pregnant. At this point, I am just crossing my fingers that the old adage about your immune system being the strongest it could be when you are pregnant is true.
We had a great weekend, it was so fun to be with Robin and all my favorite girlfriends in one place. I hate that I got so sick because it meant that I missed out on enjoying Windy Gap during one of the prettiest weekends of the year. Yesterday morning, I left camp, came home and then went straight to Urgent Care. I felt terrible, couldn't swallow without severe pain and felt feverish.
Our family practitioner was on duty there (Dr. Robert Fields), thankfully and he did a strep test and it came back positive.

Best part of the weekend? Shot of Penicillian in the butt. That was one of the worst pains I have experienced in a long time. He gave me a prescription for Dog Roids (Prednisone) and I feel so much better today. Of course, Matt is frustrated since this could not have come at a worse time for him with the area's banquet being only a week away.

If you are the praying type, please feel free to lift us up during this time. It's a little tense at our house today...

Hey, Leslie Petree here. Not sure if you remember me or not but I used to be Leslie Unger and I dated Brad Bucklad once upon a time...Anyhow, now married to Jason Petree (former YL Area Director in TX)and found your blog through Buffy's.

I can tell even from the pics that you and Robin were hilarious. Oh, please post video 'cause I could use some good YL program in my life :)

And I will definitely be praying for y'all...I know how the banquet season goes!

Thanks for your comment Leslie! The videos will be coming soon and thanks for praying! It can be hard to be sick since Mom's aren't allowed to get sick! :(

Girl, I am so sorry. Hang in there. I swear you'll be feeling so much better by tomorrow. You know I'm praying.

BTW, Hallie has strep, Hanna Grace has ear infection and bronchitis, Emma has a fever. Awesome. Pretty sure this was the worst health weekend in the history of YL camping...but we did it! We made it through! Praise the Lord.

Those pictures are GREAT! Robin's adorable big belly in red sequins....priceless.
Naturally, I am sending prayers that you are "good as new" soon.

I feel like just the photos say so much about why why I am friends with you two. I so wish I could have been there...
