Mother of all Flu Bugs

Alright so this poor blog has been neglected yet again,
this time though I promise I had a legit excuse!

Guys I had the mother of all flu bugs!
I mean it people,
I have NEVER been so sick in my life!
It was the worst 4 days ever.....
I started Friday off on a really good note:
went to my appt and heard baby's heart,
got my lab results and no anemia this time
(yay for no iron pills!),
got a goody bag from the dr that included my approved medicine list
coupons and formula!
And baby is doing great, Dr Tutt thinks I'm doing great even though I lost 4 lbs,
he's ok with it since I'm a bit um chunky shall we say ;)
Then I took water bottles and Gatorade to my parents that had the plague,
(my grandparents had it too)
I didn't even go near them or inside the house guys and I still got it!
But I was fine until we were about to leave for my youngest brother's concert
when I started feeling strange.
And at first it felt just like heartburn so Andrew grabbed me some Tums and water
but it never subsided so we had to leave at intermission
and I threw up at 2 different gas stations on the way home.....
got home, Andrew took the sitter home,
and I continued to empty my already mostly empty stomach.
Rory was very concerned, it was sweet actually.
Andrew was rubbing my back at one point and she was rubbing my arm during one episode.
I thanked them then promptly kicked them out haha
THANKFULLY neither one of them has gotten sick
so I'm praising heaven for that.
But because of all the sickness I missed the Gilbert Temple Dedication 
which just broke my heart.
BUT I'm looking forward to going and attending a session in the temple sometime soon ;)

Luckily we're all over the sickness that happened,
and haven't spread it to anyone that we know of which we think is good.
On Tuesday I begged Andrew to take me and Rory to the store
for some produce and some things we could make quickly
for snacks/meals.
He reluctantly said yes. 
He likes to just come home and crash after work but I'd been under house arrest since Friday,
I needed to get out!
So we bought over $100 worth of produce/food
(we hadn't really done a big grocery run in a long time haha
I always send Andrew to just grab a few things every now and then)
and saved over $100! 
Go Fry's VIP savings!
And we've had such good stuff for snacks and dinner ;)

Andrew is seriously my knight in shining armor.
I mean, this man will do ANYTHING for his family.
He is so willing, dependable, supportive, and has a great sense of humor that helps so much!
While I was sick, he took care of everything and then some.
I didn't have to worry about Rory being fed, bathed, or having fun
cuz she LOVES her daddy with all her little heart.
They have the greatest relationship,
it makes my heart so happy when she runs to him
when he comes home.
Or when I say no to her, she'll run to him.
He always supports me in decisions I make,
and he's the perfect partner for this crazy thing called Parenthood.
I couldn't imagine doing this with any other person.
He's my rock and Rory and I both love him sooo much!

So that's a bit of catch up for now!
A new post should be up tomorrow too!
