Horses, Ice Skates and A Trip to the ER

on April 20, 2018

Hi Friends, happy Friday!! So happy that the weekend is here. We had a bit of an unusual week over here, so we are happily rolling healthily into the weekend over here!

A glimpse of our random Tuesday night. The dog is a saint.

On Wednesday, Brooke and I loaded up into the truck around 7:45 am to meet up with some friends for the kiddos to ride horses. We were invited by a sweet friend at church to check out the arena that she caretakes. Oh my gorgeous. It was a dream. The girls had an amazing time brushing, petting, riding and leading the horses around.

It was pretty amazing!

The weather was pretty nice when we got home so we opted for some outdoor playtime!!

I got in a 4.5 mile treadmill run with 2 of those at a 7:40 pace. Counting down to race day over here!

Thursday took a bit of a strange turn. After waking up and going about breakfast as usual, Ken started to have some pretty severe abdominal pain. We gave it some time, but since it was presenting in the right lower quadrant, appendicitis became a concern. With looming weekend plans that included time away from major cities, we thoughtfully considered venturing to the ER.

After calling our neighbor and dropping off Brooke, I actually dropped Ken off at work for a bit to see if things would subside. While the pain decreased over time, there was still something off so I picked him up and headed to the ER.

Super sexy gown 😉

We lucked out in that there was NO ONE in the ER. We had the whole place to ourselves. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. They did blood work and ran a urinalysis. Since there was blood in the urine, but no increase in white blood cells (and with the pain that he had), it was determined that he passed a kidney stone. Ouch! They did a CT scan just to make sure that there were no other stones looming and that his appendix was A-OK. Thankfully, everything went up from there. He felt good enough to go back to work so I kissed him goodbye and headed to pick up Brooke.

After a bit of lunch and some chores, it was time to load back into the truck to head to the grocery and then to skating lessons.

She looked much more comfortable out there this week! It is amazing how fast kiddos learn things!!

We picked Ken up after skating and headed home to pack up the trailer for some camping this weekend!

Today I jumped on the treadmill for 3 miles and have been packing and cleaning up the house. We will head into town later to meet Ken and spend a couple of days enjoying the sun and our bikes!
