Wow, y’all. What a week it’s been.
We arrived back from our extended honeymoon, just in time to unload the car before a new wave of winter weather struck DC. I spent Saturday morning rearranging the kitchen and selecting several things to donate in order to make room for the 30 serving platters we received (seriously, I love all things kitchen related but where the hell am I going to put things like serving platters in my 800sq foot apartment?! But that’s a discussion for another time.), while my new husband went through our refrigerator to throw out all the things that had spoiled in our absence. (Hint: the kale didn’t make it.) Saturday afternoon we went on an epic Trader Joe’s run to fill up the barren refrigerator.
By Sunday afternoon, my new husband was throwing up anything and everything that touched his stomach. Plain toast, water, gatorade, all of the above. I spent Sunday night alternating between napping in bed and consoling him next to the toilet. At first, we thought maybe he’d eaten a bad oyster in Richmond, but when he was still sick on Wednesday (despite having eaten nothing for 3 days), we got a little concerned.
You see, in 2011 my new husband, then my new boyfriend, had emergency surgery to remove his colon. I’ll spare you the details of his surgery and hard-fought recovery, because it will probably make me cry, and also because we don’t need all his medical information on the interwebs. Just trust me when I say that when hubby has stomach problems, we start to get a little concerned.
So, after an appointment with a GP, a gastroenterologist nurse practitioner, and a round of blood work, they’ve scheduled him for a flex scan and an MRI next week. Hubby is feeling much better now (case in point – he wanted pizza for dinner last night and asked me to bake him chocolate chip cookies for breakfast, not gonna happen), so these tests are really just precautionary.
I tell you all this to explain why I’ve been like a walking zombie all week, haven’t read any of the amazing blogs I follow, and certainly haven’t been able to sit down and write anything coherent of my own.
I still can’t manage a decently written post, which is why you’re getting another picture post. Sorry! Take comfort in the fact that these, at least, were not taken by my iPhone and are actually incredibly high-quality pictures.
So there you go! Our wedding was absolutely everything we wanted it to be and then some. One of these days, I’ll do a full write-up with details, but for now, hopefully the pictures will suffice. Happy Saturday everyone!
