An Open Letter

Dear Body:

I know you're very busy growing a little one and I am deeply appreciative. I also recognize that this is hard work and hence don't complain when you want to go to bed at 8:30pm or eat more red meat in a week that I usually eat in a month. However, could you please space out the falling apart? Intolerable back pain resulting in the need for physical therapy and a broken tooth* resulting in the need for a temporary cap in the same day is really unfair. Oh, and if you can't space these things out could you please, please, please not have them occur 2 days before I fly to the other coast?

You should now know that I am in love with my physical therapist and dentist who are miraculously making this trip still possible.

Love and Dr's appointments.

* have I mentioned my terror when it comes to the dentist? Think of me tomorrow at 12pm EST.

Well here it is Thursday night... did you make it through ok? What a horrible double whammie! Hoping it's all in the past now, and wasn't as bad as you feared.

Finally getting a chance to catch up on my blogs.

What a bad day! Hope you are feeling okay.

Congrats on the baby though! How very exciting :o)

oh no! when it rains it pours. Hope it wasn't that bad. I need to have a cap put on a tooth as well, but I've been avoiding it more for financial reasons. I guess it's better than waiting and having to get a root canal. Hope it went OK.
