Today we went to our 24 week appointment (though Patty is at about 24.5 weeks). The report was great - the doctor heard a very strong heartbeat, blood pressure was good, and Patty is actually measuring about 26 weeks.
Working at a middle school has placed us around a lot of students with the H1N1 virus. There were a couple of days at the beginning of the school year where my classes would be missing 1/4-1/3 of the students because they were sick. Thankfully neither Patty or I have gotten sick, but with the H1N1 still showing up in many of our students we asked about the vaccine today. The Dr. told us that they had ordered 2,000 doses but had only gotten 400 of them. The received about 200 last week and they were gone within a day. He then told us that they had a shipment come in today but it was at their other office. When the called to see if there were any doses left, they told us that we could probably get one if we could be there within 15 minutes. All that to say, Patty was a brave girl and got her H1N1 vaccine. According to Patty, the conversation with the sneaky nurse went like this...
Nurse: Hi, have a seat. How are you doing today?
Patty: I am doing well and you?
Nurse: That's a nice shirt you got on [followed by her jabbing the needle without warning Patty]
No, Patty didn't cry....but she still hasn't moved her arm and she made me take her out to eat at McAllister's.
In other news, we are having our Halloformationestival Party with our Sunday School class on Friday night (Halloformationestival is the combination of Halloween, Reformation Day, and Fall Festival...you can take your pick). there is a prize for the best costume and Patty is trying to think of some ideas. If you have any suggestions, you can leave a comment. And yes, there will be pictures to post on Saturday.
Have a Happy Halloformationestival Day!
