Bryan

I am happy to report that Bryan is officially back to normal! We ended up not getting samples of the Levaquin, unfortunately. However, Dr Carroll took good care of Bryan and gave him a higher dose with less pills, so it was less expensive. $80 at Costco compared to $130 at Rite-Aid. Good times.

He coughed for about three weeks after he went to the ER. He recently started running again, which is a good sign. He is back to his old self but swamped with homework, as this is his last semester of his undergraduate degree. He missed 8 school days in all, which is ridiculous when working on a capstone class.

We did not qualify for Medi-cal, which is a bummer. We've paid a few of the bills and are going to go on a payment plan for rest of the bills, which are still to come.

I am still unsure of whether I want to be vaccinated for H1N1. If Bryan had it, and I didn't get it, does that mean I've built up an immunity? If the virus mutates, will I get it then? And if it does mutate, will the H1N1 shot be good anyways? It's so confusing. We want to 'start trying' to have a baby in July or around that time, and I'm not sure I want vaccine in my body... although I got the seasonal flu shot this year without even thinking about it.

I just don't know. You think working in a doctor's office, I'd have a better idea of what to do, and what my risk is. But we only know so much here... we don't even know when we'll get the vaccine.

The funny thing is, I was not really worried about swine flu when the media first starting covering it. I wasn't really worried about it when my husband first got it; it's just the flu. But the pneumonia that accompanied H1N1 terrified me.

So what now?

How He Loves Us (as sung by David Crowder Band)

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.

And we are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If his grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
And heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.
