I haven't disappeared.

I was in the hospital over the weekend with a sudden, serious infection.

I am not dying, so don't get your knickers in a knot. And I am feeling much better now.

However, hospitals suck.

I intend to write about just how much my latest visit sucked, later, when it doesn't pain me to relive the experience.

My bathroom faucet broke. Now the old faucet and a new faucet are both in pieces in my bathroom, but there is still no faucet attached to my sink, because apparently we need some obscure sort of nut type thing to connect the new faucet to our decidedly not-new pipes.

Isaac ate a whole banana last week. A whole, fresh banana. He wouldn't touch the edible part of the banana directly with his fingers, but he ate the whole thing. With a smile on his face.

I hope you feel better soon! I totally agree with you that hospitals stink and are not fun places to be.

Yeah on the banana! It took Evan awhile to get into fresh fruit too. He still will only eat certain kinds and only when very hungry but you take what you can get.

"You take what you can get" is my new pathologically-picky-child-feeding motto.

Is it Sawdust Poisoning? Scratched Floor Syndrome? Maybe Home Improvement Flu? You've certainly been through it, and surely fate would not see fit to make you sick on top of moving over the holidays and your flooring fiasco. Surely fate would not be that cruel.

Dude, I hope you're feeling better. You so do not have to make me dinner now. I will not let you. So next week, when you're doing okay and I'm over the flu Gabe gave me, we'll meet somewhere and we'll BOTH be waited on hand and foot. I insist.

Yay Isaac! *High Fiving the child*

Holy cow woman. I was going to go with some sort of flooring flu but I see Andrea has already guessed that.

Yeay to your little man for eating a banana. And beautiful faucet.

Hospitals DO suck! What I can't stand most is the smell! I think I'm allergic to that much 'clean.'
Too bad Husband works at one - he uses fancy-smelling soap before he comes home so I won't complain about his hands smelling "like hospital."

Yikes. I hope you and the sink are feeling better soon.

hospital stay? infection? oh, sugar. oh, lamby-pie. um. I think my mom's vocabulary suddenly just possessed my fingers. shoo, mom!

but fer reals. I'm so sorry. I hope you're okay now.

and a banana? A WHOLE FREAKIN' BANANA? Oh, man, Jaelithe, that is awesome. wicked-awesome.

(the sink thing straight sucks, though.)
