...especially when your Pennsylvania cousins have to go back home and you don't know when you're going to see them again.
My kids loving playing with someone so close to their age, and the cousins get to be scandalized by all the worldly and trendy things my kids know about while they stay pure and innocent in homeschool ;)
Group hug!! And a monkey.
Wait, you forgot about me!
One babe and two babies :)
In other news, I had my first* panic attack and ended up in the ER, not knowing if I was dehydrated or having a heart attack or what was happening. It is VERY scary to have a panic attack, I actually thought I was going to die (that sounds so dramatic, but it's the truth) because I could not breathe right and was lightheaded and dizzy and my hands were numb and my body was violently shaking.
Thankfully my brother and sister-in-law were here to take care of all the kids while Phil took me to the hospital. They discovered that I have a low functioning thyroid and so I will be calling my doctor on Monday to have further testing done. Maybe if they can get my thyroid functioning properly, I will have a LOT of my weird symptoms go away that I found out could all possibly be linked to hypothyroidism. Anyway, knowledge is power, and I need answers.
Ok, I've TMIed the bajingas out of you, so I'll sign off for now.
*While I was waiting in the ER to be fixed, I started recalling a few incidents through my life where my breathing would get off-kilter and I would be close to fainting. I always came up with a reason for them (dehydrated, tired, too much incense at church) but now I'm wondering if it was panic attacks this whole time.
