Rich's friend went back to the Dr. and now they think the baby's in a position where she might be able to carry it! She's going to go to another Dr. to get a second opionion but at least there's some hope!

One of Rich's friends just found out his girlfriend was pregnant. They've been together for years and already have one kid so they were happy about it.

But they found out yesterday that it is either an ectopic pregnancy (which means that the egg implanted in the fallopian tube and not the uterus) or a cyst. Either way she'll probably have to have surgery. If she is pregnant they will have to abort, because an ectopic pregnancy cannot be carried to term without killing the mother. There is not room for the baby to grow and it would rupture the tube.

Just thought we could send up a prayer, even though they had just found out they were both excited and had been wanting to have another kid.

I meant to put this up yesterday, but I forgot.

Yesterday was the 13th anniversary of Grandpa North's death. I can't believe it's been so long already. I was only 10 at the time, but it was my first funeral of someone that I knew well and I remember it pretty well. I actually remember the night he died more vividly, because I knew... I don't know how but I did. We went bowling that night with some of our cousins and I just felt so sick to my stomach and when we got back we found out he had passed away. I had the same feeling the days Grandma North and Grandma Robey died...

But on a happier note I am so excited about the North family Thanksgiving! The last time I can remember so many of us getting together was Grandma North's funeral... ummm 11 years ago? It will be great to see almost everyone again. Can't wait!

So I was just looking through one of the many catelogs I've gotten in the last week :) and found some interesting quotes I thought I'd share:

"Enjoy the little things in life for one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things"

"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul" Dickinson

"Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling likethe dickens underneath" Michale Caine

"When I was your age, pluto was a planet" :)

"vocatvs atque non vocatvs deus aderit"
"Bidden or not bidden, God is present"

Friday was the Pink Floyd concert at the Fabulous Fox :) It was awesome! They played the entire version of the Wall, which was longer than I realized. And some of the visual effects they used were amazing, I just wished they would have had more. During the helicopter part of the song they had all the spot lights come together so that it looked like a search light, and then they all stopped suddenly when the song said "Hey you! Yeah you!" It was awesome. Then the second half of the show they had lazer lights going. And I got a glow-stick from somebody in the crowd, which is always fun.

Saturday Rich had a bonfire for his bday. It was pretty fun. April even got to come out, and we played some beer pong :)

Here's a few pics Rich took today. They got the fire under control. Fire trucks came from all over. It didn't get any houses and nobody got hurt. It actually cleared the underbrush from the woods so it was probably kind of healthy for the woods. It'll probably be really pretty next spring.

Woods on fire!!

Rich just called and told me the woods behind his house are on fire! There are 5 fire trucks out there and they're trying to rake to get the fire out of the woods. Rich's Dad said there's probably a dozen acres already on fire and they're just trying to keep it from spreading. His Dad has been keeping the fire from the shed with a hose... pretty crazy! I'll probably update this weekend with pictures.

Halloween fun

Halloween proved to be a very interesting weekend :) On Friday Rich and I went and got pumpkins to carve because I had these awesome patterns where you put a pumpkin inside of another pumpkin. We got the pumpkins and had everything set up outside since it was such a nice day. I let Rich go first since we only had one knife out there to carve the lid. And all of a sudden he gasped... and started running for the house. All I saw was blood. I followed him inside and he ran some cold water over it and there was lots of blood coming out, so I knew it was pretty deep. Then I got a rag so he could put some pressure on it. Then I noticed Rich's face was really pale, and he said he just needed to sit down and he needed something cold, so I just got him a cold rag. We then decided to go to the hospital to get it checked out. So I got him out to my car, slowly he had to sit down a few times. I dropped him off at the door and went and parked the car. By the time I got inside and through security Rich was already in triage. They were giving me trouble cause they thought I had mace in my purse. I told him I had no idea what was in there, cause I really didn't. Turned out the canister he saw was my inhaler so he let me through.

They wrapped Rich's finger and gave him some tylenol. Found out what happened. They said he was the only one this year who had cut themselves carving pumpkins :) he loved to hear that. Then we had to wait in the waiting room for a little while. We finally got a room and the nurse checked him out and cleaned out the cut. He said he'd need a tetanus shot and probably stitches but that they might be able to glue it. Then it took forever for the doctor to come look at it, and she said she was going to give him stitches, so she left to get stuff ready. Then the nurse came back in and said they decided to just glue it because it wasn't on a "bendy" part of his finger and that the glue should be ok. So then we had to wait for the doctor to come back and glue it shut. Rich said we should have just gone to Target and gotten some superglue. Before the doctor came back some kid came in and asked if he wanted to be part of a medical study. Basically they offer him federally funded follow-up care (because he told them he didn't have a primary physician) and they call to see if they were more likely to go to their follow-up appointment if it was free. I, in the meantime, stole Rich's blanket because I was freezing. Turns out I had a fever which is why I was still shivering while I was wrapped in the blanket.

After they finally came and glued his finger and got his paperwork done I had just enough time to take a shower and head to work.

Friday was my first day at Target. I didn't feel good since I had a fever. And it was such a long day anyway since we had to go to the hospital. I really just didn't want to be there. I did like everyone I've worked with so far. There's a girl from Silex so we know a lot of the same people since we hung out with the Silex basketball team a little in high school. There's also a guy from Kenya who is also a STLCOP student.

Yesterday was Rich's birthday and I got him a puzzle box, like the one's my dad has. I've always thought they were cool and I knew he would like one. This is what it looks like and it has 27 steps to open it.

Also just wanted to share my picture of the squirrels eating the pumpkins I had in the backyard. We just left them there when we went to the hospital, and the squirrels took the lid off Rich's and starting eating the seeds. :) The pic is small but I took it with my phone... by the time I got my real camara the squirrel was gone.
