Last night we went to Fort Osage, MO (after I took a half day off of school which was incredible) and watched Levi & the Ozark Tigers play in the state semifinals. Ozark lost. Everyone from the stands went on the field after the loss and all the parents were hugging their sons, and here's what I did not expect- the tears! Oh my goodness. It was so sad. All of these 18 year old boys were sobbing into their mom and dad's shoulders, if I would have known it was such a sad scene I might not have gone on the field. I started crying too! There will probably be a day 18 years from now that I will cry at Mason's last football game.
Speaking of Mason, I went to the doctor on Thursday and he still has a strong heartbeat. I also took my glucose and anemia tests. I was very anxious about these tests! I really didn't want to be diabetic because I saw what Ashley had to go through and it did NOT look fun. To see if I had gestational diabetes they made me drink this liquid that tasted like a cross between Hawaiian Punch and latex. I had to drink it in 5 minutes- by drink I mean chug. I felt like I was a 21 year old at a bar. The doctor said I needed my glucose to be lower than 140, and my blood count to be between 12-16. I was able to see my test results online, and my glucose came back at 107! YAY! What a relief!! But my blood count came back as 10.8, so I'm slightly anemic. I haven't been back to the doctor yet to see if I need to take iron supplements, but at least I don't have to go on a special diet and don't have to prick my finger.
