Doctor visit

I really despise going to the doctor but in my current situation it is necessary so I made my first appointment on Thursday. According to the nurse practitioner that did the exam, they are putting me at approximately 18 weeks, while the original date (based on my last menstrual cycle) puts me at about 20 weeks. I did get to hear the baby's heartbeat on Thursday. I had forgotten how cool that was the first time around. We only heard one heartbeat so that is a plus!
I am going back on December 2nd for a sonogram which will verify that there is only one kid in there. Hopefully, we will also get to see if we will be having a boy or a girl. I have two girls that I gave birth to already and he has a little boy of his own. So far, I have gotten two votes for a boy and no votes for a girl from friends. They are telling me that I have to have at least one boy. Any thoughts from you, my fair readers?
That's all for today.

My big sis

In my biological family, there are 4 siblings. I am the oldest of 3 girls and 1 boy. However, since I have been in AZ, I have come to consider my closest friends to be family as well. In that regard, I have 2 more sisters and 4 brothers who I love very much. My older sister just found out that she may have to go in for surgery soon and they are not sure if she will make it through surgery. From a blood infection, cysts all over, to chest cold and the start of pneumonia, I am really scared for her. The doctor is telling her that they are going to hve to crack her ribs apart in order to do the surgery and seeing as how they are wondering about how she is still walking around does not bode well for her making it through surgery.
Why am I posting this? I am scared for her, not going to lie at all. Therefore, i am asking all of you, Please, Please, keep her in your thoughts, send good thoughts, vibes, prayers, or whatever her way. I could really use some help staying positive for her as well as helping her stay positive.
Thanks.

Over and done with!!!!!

Since January of 2008, my children have been in the custody of CPS. Due to some stupid mistakes and poor decisions, they were taken from us. I can gladly say that as of October, 2009, the children are finally completely back in my custody. It has been a long, hard road and it is so fucking good to have them back! They are doing well in school. Lilith is in the orchestra and plays the violin and Isis is doing so well that I got her a new kitten. He is a little black kitty named Webster.
I have started a new job, still in tech support. In training now for the next 5 weeks. It is not too bad though. Part time, so I am only in a classroom for 4 hours a day. I am still involved with the Envisage 2009 project. It is a lot of fun and I find myself taking some weird pictures of random objects that make up my day every day. The hardest part is remembering to take a picture every day, LOL.
Anywhoo, that is all for now.
