Where’s Lori?

Last fall my husband and I discovered that we are expecting our second child, due on July 4th! We have a three-year-old son. Since about November I’ve had severe morning ALL DAY sickness. Around Christmas it got worse and a few weeks ago it got so bad that I became dehydrated and could not function. So I am on leave from work until this gets better.

I’m at home hooked up to IVs and a nurse comes every few days to check on me. It’s actually quite amazing what they can do for you at home so that you don’t have to go in the hospital.

In the meantime I am reclined in my favorite chair with my laptop, new toy, and many hours to pass! Know of any good books?
