Back in the Game? Maybe.

To all of RCB's faithful followers, I'd like to apologize for neglecting you for so long. Although, that apology, doesn't get come with a promise that I won't do it again. If you read my last post on FaceBook then you've already heard. But for those of you who didn't here's your chance to read my lame excuse of why I've been neglecting you and the blog. I am pregnant. Yea! However, I also am one of those lucky 1 in 200 women who get to endure hyperemesis gravidarum during every pregnancy. To learn about this go to hyperemesis.org. For treatment I get to figure out how to swallow anti-nasea pills, and be cursed with a permanent IV (also known as a pic line, or TPN) in my arm and annoying cords and a heavy TPN bag & pump. So, all this fun stuff and chasing around my 18m daughter has really filled my summer.

There may be light at the end of the tunnel, though. I just made two twin size quilts for my husband's sisters (twins) who just turned 16 (Pictures of front of quilts below). Happy birthday girls! What does this mean? It means that I have been able to get off my bum and get something done. Yea for me! Any one who has suffered through hyperemesis gravidarum will understand this is a big breakthrough or a nice remission.

I'm going to try and push this remission to last as long as I can get it, and I'm going to try my darnedest to get back to work with Rosy Cheek Boutique. So, hopefully you can look forward to more products and posts.

Have you ever read To Have or To Hold by Josi Kilpack? The main character suffers this very thing although that's not the main part of the book. It's one of my favorites in LDS Romantic Fiction though.
You're amazing for finishing those quilts from what I know about hyperemesis.

Luckily I get rare "remission" days that are easier than the hard days.
