18 and counting!

Yesterday was our 18th anniversary. I laugh every time I look at this photo now, because we both looked so young. I guess that is just because we are "old" now. We were hugging in the kitchen on Sunday afternoon and Colby groaned and said, "Gross. Old people in love!" I would have thought that the 40's were old when I was 15, too!

People always talk about the good and bad times that they have gone through together over their years of marriage. We have had a few difficult patches (with life. . .not each other) but, to be honest, even those patches were pretty good! We always have fun together- no matter what we are doing. Although Ed is a lot smarter than me, I keep him around with my beauty and excellent cooking! *rolling eyes*

I have thoroughly enjoyed our first 18 years together and I hope we have at least 18 more! It is great being married to your best friend.

Finally a Diagnosis

Day 14 of Feeling Crappy.

Reed has been diagnosed with Pseudomembranous Colitis caused by Clostridium Difficile. He is taking Metronidazole. What a mouthful!

Basically, the good bacteria in the colon have been overthrown by the bad. Presumably with the help of the antibiotic that he was on for his Strep Throat. He has diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain. He is exhausted and basically feels lousy. We have been pretty agressive in trying to find out what is wrong with him because he is SO sick! We just found all this out today. We still don't have the results of the ultrasound, but probably will in a couple of days. Hopefully he will be starting to feel better by then.
