Prayers Needed

I am finally feeling a little more alive and can eat a bit more. I have been wanting cereal. Of course they are not the healthiest choices of cereal but hey if I can keep it down then it is better than nothing.
Yesterday I received some very hard to swallow news and I would really appreciate your prayers. My grandfather who is 85 has a mass on each lung. He will be going for a scan again tomorrow to see if the brain area has been affected with the cancer. He doesn't have any of the typical symptoms of lung cancer but it is blatantly there. He had gone in for a scan of the heart due to leg swelling. His circulation is not what it used to be. they just so happened to stumbled upon the lung issue. I am thankful they found it and pray that he has more time on this earth. I appreciate your prayers. His name is Bob

Pity Party Please

Well, today I am 10 weeks 4 days pregnant. It has been a very rough go up this this month. I had truly thought I would avoid the miserable all day sickness that plagued me when I was pregnant with Gracie but it did show up alittle later than it did with her. UGH! This weekend was hard because I have a nasty sinus infection on top of the mess and the post nasal drip just does wonders to my gag reflexes. I will admit defeat and say yes I am miserable. It is so hard when you know you have eat to nourish the baby and nothing remotely sounds good. I have been living off of Popsicles and bananas (although a little hesitant to try the latter as it didn't stay down last time I tried). Smells are even worst. I am driving my husband batty. Everything stinks and sends me over the edge. I had to suffer through washing some dishes this morning because I feel so bad that my husband has had to do so much extra but I literally gagged over the food on the plates,,, Oh and don't even get me started on my hair issue. I see pieces of hair every where and feel like I am constantly going to hack up a fur ball. I feel like there is hair in my throat. This issue is nothing new and something I struggled with when I was pregnant with Gracie. I know it is all worth it in the end my I just needed this little pity party to express exactly what I am going through.
