catching up: goodbye sweet kitty, hernias, and more...

Our sweet Maddie cat was hit by a car a little over a week ago.  She was such a sweet, cuddly kitty who lived a very short but hopefully full life.  We miss her very much.  She was hit around 10 or 11 on a Saturday night and a man who knows the family found her, moved her to the side of the road so she wouldn't keep getting run over and took her collar so he could call us in the morning.  We buried her in the woods and I would like to plant something over her soon, in remembrance.  I knew it was a possibility that having and outdoor cat could result in this, but I honestly didn't think it would happen so soon.  We'll miss you sweet kitty.

In other news, it appears that I may have a hiatal hernia which is causing all of my nausea and vomiting over the past few weeks/months.  I was admitted to the hospital over the weekend for dehydration and vomiting and have a referral to a gastroenterologist for tomorrow.  I don't know what kind of confirmation tests they can do on me in my pregnant state, but we'll just have to see.
Teddy keeps wiggling, kicking and moving every day.  He's quite active.  He's the size of a cantaloupe and rapidly approaching a cauliflower!  I have an ultrasound scheduled for May 5th for a growth check.  I don't know what he's thought of all the vomiting I've done, especially over the past week, but I can only hope that being squeezed by my abdominal muscles repeatedly feels much like being hugged.  If so, he must feel very loved.
