Apparently I am like a wet seal... lovely.. :P

So I am not going to apologize for my lack of posts this past week or so. I have a good reason. So starting last Tuesday, I started losing blood. A lot of blood. So much that by Friday, I had lost half of the blood in my body, which resulted in me passing out in the shower. NOT COOL by the way! Luckily I called for my husband and he attempted to catch me so I didn't hit my head. I say attempted because you try catching someone or something that weighs 100 pounds more than you that is slippery from the shower. Yeah it didn't work so well. I do believe when I regained consciousness he said it was like trying to catch a wet seal. Thanks Honey... actually I find that statement pretty amusing. The way my mind works didn't actually take offense to it, which is a good thing, instead, my mind tried to picture that image and this made me feel better.

So anywho, I got to the Emergency Room and they poked and prodded and wanted a urine sample, and all that jazz. They told me my hemoglobin was a seven. It is supposed to be FOURTEEN-ISH. AHH!!! So they put me on that Provera, which I didn't want to be on in the first place, and also gave me some Iron supplements. I know, not totally traditional, but I almost died so I am just going to do as they tell me and if something happens again, it is on their heads.

But I am okay, the first few days were tough, every time I stand up my head would start pounding and I would hear a whooshing sound that I assume was my heart beat. I still kind of hear and feel that way but no where as bad as it was those first few days. Today is actually the first day I felt well enough to even type this. But see I have a doctor's appointment today, and maybe I have a little more energy from the food my Honey has been making me. I felt like I was on a very Paleo/Primal diet, with emphasis of "you must eat more meat, meat good yum." Now I am very grateful for his attempts of giving me lots of iron, but it wasn't until last night that I actually got some vegetables in my system in a decent quantity. He made me pumpkin cookies, which were good but I think I accidentally told him 1/2 a tsp of clove instead of 1/4 tsp. They are very strong, and I don't like them.

He has been the best little nurse anyone could ask for. I feel bad though, I feel like I am keeping him from doing the things that he loves to do. He enjoys taking care of me. I don't know what I would do with out him. Orion stayed with Grandma for 3 days while all of this was happening, when he came home, wow, I got so worn out. Watching a child run around and play has never made me so tired or irritable before. I think it is because my body could not process it.  

I will be doing a guest post / giveaway on another blog for my Etsy shop, if anyone is interested. This is just a  heads up. I will post a link to the blog when it is up. :)

I am going to go rest now, before my appointment. I feel the sleep monger calling me.

How was your weekend?
