I'm Baaack!!! A very large tree took out the telephone pole behind my house. Since I get both my phone & internet from verizon, no nothing for a week!

Know what you don't want to do? Cut someone with Agoraphobia off from the outside world! Went a little nuts there.

Okay now.
Thanks for the concern!
Hope no one from our community was hurt!

Thanks Bubbles. I missed you ladies!!!! I spent a whole week in my head - that's not good. No phone, no internet & I didn't want to go out. Not good. But I survived!

Surviving in that kind of situation is a huge win! Great job! Do you still have damage to deal with or are things better now?

I'm doing okay... This afternoon my feet, hands, and face started swelling up and when I checked my BP it was kind of high. Will keep an eye on it but I'm just worried about getting preeclampsia like I did during my last pregnancy. Otherwise I'm okay.

Kate_Te replied to off_the_wall's response:
I don't have anything to clean up. It was only one tree in a yard 4 houses away, that just happened to take down my telephone pole while it was destroying a neighbor's garage and a couple of roofs (not mine).
I'm sorry you are swelling. Just do me a favor & stay in close contact with your ob. I want both you and your new daughter safe. (P.S. When are you due?)

off_the_wall replied to Kate_Te's response:
I'm very glad to hear there is no damage at your place. I'm due Dec 7, OB right now wants to schedule c-section for Dec 5 unless I go into labor before that. I feel pretty certain this is going to be an end of November baby though. I'm keeping a close eye on the BP and will definitely call my OB if it gets much higher so no worries there. I know preeclampsia is nothing to mess around with (was super scary when I had it the last time!)

If she is born on December 7th, you can name her Pearl (Pearl Harbor Day).

off_the_wall replied to Kate_Te's response:
That would be cute but she definitely won't be born Dec 7 since if I make it to Dec 5 that will be the day I have the c-section. We shall see.... BP is better today so far so I'm relieved about that.

Hi Everyone,

Very happy to be home. We have power and heat, thank god. Im extremely exhausted. Water came within three houses from us. A lot of damaged in the neighbor, people still without power. We were in my car a lot because it was warmer then the apartment. I considering sleeping in the car Friday night. I had to make a decision on Friday, stay in my apartment and freeze or try to make to my sister's with the little gas I had. She kept saying to come. Well, we made to my sisters, who also had no power but had a gas fire place and got a generator. We stayed until today, I wasnt sure if I could make it home with the little gas I had, got close to my apartment and got on line for gas. Was there for 6 hours, they didnt get a delivery, so we left, just made it home on fumes. Will get up early tomorrow, get on line for gas and hope for the best. My daughter has been out of school for a week and will be out tomorrow. I have not been in work for work either and will be out tomorrow also. I need gas to get to work. If I get gas early enough I will go in but I also have to go food shopping because we had to clean out the frig before we left. I have nothing. It has been overwhelming for me, there are so many of my daughters friend with no homes now.
My ex got mad at me for not helping him but there was really nothing I could do. The night of the storm he text me and said another foot the water will be in the house, is there anything you want. The next day he text and said Thanks for the help. I have no idea what he expected me to do. I got really upset over that.
I got upset with one of my sisters who lives 10mins from me, who got power on Friday, she text me to say she got power and offer candles. I was so upset, I dont need candles, I need heat, she never offered to lets us stay with her. Instead I drove 45mins to my other sisters house, used all my gas so we wont freeze. Let me tell you I was sooo cold Thursday night, I was shaking.

My anxiety and stress had been through the roof, I was an emotionally mess before the storm, now Im just totally drained of any emotion. Before I left for my sisters I ask a friend(who had power) if my daughter and I could stay with them. She basically said no. I tried another friend but didnt ask because she was in worse shape then we were.

I still very exhausted so I hope this makes sense, I dont have enough energy to try and re read this. Right now all I need is a hug and shoulder to cry on.

I know I whining right now but I am grateful I have a warm apartment now, no physical harm came to me or my daughter. We were very fortunate with this storm. My heart goes out to those who lost everything.

Thank you Fran and all of you listening to me.
Kate
