Minor news, and MAJOR news!

First, the minor news:

I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yesterday. And it rocked. I laughed, I cried, I died a thousand deaths, it was better than Cats, I want to read it again and again.

Seriously. Good. Stuff.

Lemme know if you want to discuss it--for the time being, I won't post any spoilers here, but I'm always up for a good email discussion!

And, the major news:

Sweetie is pregnant! Woo hoo!!! Kiddo #2 is due sometime around the beginning of March. Sweetie's about 8 weeks into the pregnancy, and hasn't been feeling the best--prayers for her would be appreciated--BUT, so far (knock on wood) she hasn't felt nearly as bad as she did at this point with Kiddo. Not a whole lot of other details since we're relatively early on right now, but I'll be sure to keep y'all updated on how everything is. Basically, as long as Sweetie and the baby are healthy, that's all we're asking for.

One HUGE development that's happened since Kiddo was born: as we discovered during the pregnancy with Kiddo, Zofran is a Godsend when one is nauseated. It's amazing--almost magical.

It's also frickin' expensive. Even with insurance.

BUT...there's now a generic equivelent!!! Which means that our co-pay for 20 pills is only $10 now, instead of $45!

Without insurance, the name brand stuff is $799. For 20 pills. Eek.

SO...prayers for Sweetie to be healthy, happy and comfortable, for the baby to be healthy, for Kiddo (who currently thinks this whole baby thing is pretty cool) to be a wonderful big brother, and for me to be as supportive as I can be. That's not asking too much, is it?

Hey Matt! Congratulations, that's great news! I'd be up for discussing the book if you want; Ben hasn't even started it yet so I haven't been able to talk to him about it. My email is christykeele [at] gmail [dot] com.

Congratulations on your happy news! We wish your whole family the best, and we will keep you in our prayers.

Yay! Congratulations! I'm excited for you all. I'm sure your little guy is fun to see all hyped up about having a new baby sibling. It's fun when they KNOW (at least a little bit) what's happening. Prayers and peace!

Yay! Congratulations. How exciting to soon be a family of 4.

I also loved HP and would be happy to talk about it if you want. :)

So, I shouldn't send a care package of Puking Pastilles?

RevScott--not unless you wanna get a Howler from a pregnant woman...

...and perhaps a Cruciatious Curse the next time she sees you...
