Grizzly & the baby

I don't know what to title this post as. I have nothing and everything going on right this moment. We are ending the hubby's leave & our old roomie is flying out next week. One buddy left for a deployment and one just got back. Right now I am sitting in a waiting room waiting on Grizzly to get down with his ultrasound.
For the past couple of weeks Grizzly has been walking around with his tail down. I didn't think much of it because of Stagecoach & with the baby coming.. then Gideon got bite by a Spider. We took Gideon in and that's what started the whole Grizzly talk. We took Grizzly in that afternoon for some blood work. Friday we found out that Grizzly's liver levels were high and they wanted us to get an ultrasound done to see at what stage of liver failure he has. We have been on pins & needles waiting to hear what is going to happen next. Needless to say it's been very emotional around my house - well for me. Since the blood work his appetite has suppressed and he hasn't been as mobile as usual. If we get the results that this is a first level then we will move forward with a new diet, and various other things (that we haven't talked about). Past that we will have to make a decision for his well being - I mean the poor little guy already has a collapsed lung and a enlarged heart. Putting him through more medicine for liver failure seems pretty severe.  This seems a lot colder written out then the emotional way you'd hear me say all of this. I cry and cry... I just can't imagine losing this little guy.

Moving on to baby talk. I have yet to prepare my hospital bag but that is my next order of business.The baby is starting to move down & my hips are starting to really hurt. Yesterday I was so hot that I had three fans on me and still felt like I sweating like crazy! The baby moves around a lot - I mean a lot - and it's starting to hurt. We broke out the medicine ball the other night to see if that helps with the hip pain.. and it did a little. I feel like for the next of weeks I'm going to live in our little pool in the back yard. I want to get my car detail cleaned before putting the carseat in.. but we are as good as ready for this baby to make it's arrival anytime!!

That's where I stand at the moment. To me it seems like a lot.. hopefully everything goes great with Grizzly & this baby comes sooner then later.
