So, Friday was AWFUL…no question about that. (And, the jerks made me get my platelets checked AGAIN while I was there).
But, I get it. It’s not up to me. I can’t make plans. It’s totally in His hands.
My friend invited me and #1 (and hubby) over for dinner. #1 and I went right after work and daycare. We hung out. We are very lucky to have friends.
Hubby called at 5:10 saying he was wrapping things up and starting to head home. We were busy with our combined three kids, and before I knew it, it was 7pm. Hubby still wasn’t there. He called. The car battery is dead. It won’t take a charge. They are driving around (he and his boss) looking for an auto parts store. Then, they realize, they need to get the car out of the garage, or it will be locked up all weekend.
They go push the car out of the garage and into another lot, and head back out in search of a battery. They get a battery ($75) , bring it back, and still no luck.
So, our friends call a tow truck, the tow truck ($65) comes and gets the car and brings it to the shop, and our friend picks up hubby and brings him back to their house.
During all of this, I find out that my platelets were only 91,000…back down again….down so low that I can’t have an epidural if I went into the hospital Friday night. Down so low, that even if we would have made it to the hospital, they probably would have sent me home.
So, after the awful news at the doctor, we have low platelets, a car that won’t work, and we’ve spent about $150!!! They fixed the car Saturday morning (yet another $175), and here I sit still very preggo.
But, I’m trying to get it….I can’t make plans. I have to leave it up to God! He is in charge, He is the boss.
So, thank you all for your support, love and prayers. It really means a lot.
I’ll keep you all updated. As of tonight, I have an appointment for Tuesday, but I have a feeling because of the low platelets, they are going to want to see me tomorrow. Wish me luck.
Thanks for letting me vent. Happy posts HAVE to be coming soon. It’s inevitable!
