In other words, my sister had her baby today!! Miah was born at around 5:00 this morning, after my sister checked herself into the hospital around 4;30. She was 6 Pounds, 6 ounces, and 19.5 inches.
I told my sister yesterday that I was cutting my hair for her, so that she’d go into labor. No, haircuts don’t usually bring on labor, but I was going to wait to do it after the baby was born. I decided instead to do it yesterday, hoping she’d go into labor either last night or sometime today.
My sister’s husband is with her at the hospital. Unfortunately no one else can go visit her there because Covid. She said earlier today that she thinks she’ll be released tomorrow though.
right here. Blah, I totally messed up the domain pointing on that thing!!!! I really do like micro.blog, but it insists on using a www redirect. Or my registrar insists that it insists on using a www redirect. I’m not exactly sure which is the case at this point.
I’ve always wanted somewhere to just write something quick, and sure WP will do that. However, opening up WP seems like a lot for just writing maybe 2 tweets worth of content. Whereas I have people I’m following on micro.blog who talk about cool stuff, including RSS a lot, so I’m probably going to be there anyway.
Eventually, when I get the hang of the microblogging thing without using Twitter, I’ll let micro.blog post them back to Twitter. I’ll probably make a whole lot of people on Twitter mad when I do that. It’s really no different than going to a Mastodon instance and seeing ridiculous amounts of actual tweets and retweets.
I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday. I never posted about this here, but I talked about it during Audiomo. My caregiver went into self quarantine last week.
A friend from church took me to the appointment and brought me back. I’ve never been in the exam room by myself before. I usually have a caregiver with me, or heaven for bid my mom. Not saying having mom with me is bad or anything, but when you’re about to turn 37 and your mom has to take you to a doctor’s appointment, and get involved in your personal business, it’s really annoying.
I actually got there early, so I had to wait. When I was in the exam room, I was like hmm what do I say to this person when she comes in? it was strange because she was wearing a mask and I wasn’t. Turns out, everyone in our state has to wear masks indoors now. Thankfully I’m not going anywhere soon!
After the appointment was done, I went to get labs. We waited for what seemed like a half hour for them just to take a 2 minute blood test. I do have an appointment with my endocrinologist tomorrow, but he’s calling me. They called a couple hours ago and asked if I wanted a telehealth appointment. I told them that clicking links in texts is kind of hard for me, because it is, and I really don’t need video, so they agreed to call just using the phone.
