Hard to Believe

Well this is some news for everyone. My blood tests came back and I have the West Nile Virus. When My doctor called and told me I thought she was kidding. Then she told me that there was only 1 other case in Iowa which made it even harder to believe. So Wednesday I loaded the boys in the car and we spent the day at the doctor's.
It all started with last week I had the worst flu in my life for about 4-5 days. The Doctor said that was the worst of it and so now we just need to wait for it to work its way out of my system. I have to go back in for a check up and another blood test. I have daily headaches and body aches. I have a hard time catching my breathe so I am on 2 inhalers and lots of aspirin for the all the aches and pains. She didn't classify my as moderate but she didn't classify me as severe either since death and paralyse are things on the severe side. I am in that 20% of people who fall somewhere in between. The good news, is that the worst is over so now I am on the mend.
Try not to Google West Nile because you will just scare yourself (as I did), but everyone.... WEAR YOUR BUG SPRAY.
Willy said that he is waiting for the meteor to hit our house now. He is taking great care of me and Grammy and Papa Beach came and took the kids so I could have rest.
We don't know too much about it other than what I have read on the CDC website but we are learning. Life does go on.....

Kate's Wedding

We went up to Minnesota for my nieces wedding this weekend and we all had a great time. She was beautiful and hard to believe that she was old enough to get married already. For everyone in my family who couldn't be there, here are some pictures. Congrats Katie and John.
