The Eventful Thursday

This was my outfit on Thursday, March 24th. Oh, the day that started all normal and regular like any other day. Amazing how everything unraveled after that so quickly... But the inspiration had come from the following chictopia post

Yes, I know her sweatshirt looks cooler cropped and the black and white loafers go better.  

The only 'crop' sweatshirt I had that was similar is my super cute girl swinging in the snow print one. It does the job I think.  

I went beyond the child proof fence around the pool to get the other side of my yard to take these photos 

Attempts at a 'walking' photo... 

Leather Jacket - Wet Seal
Sweatshirt - Forever 21
Cargo Pants - JCrew
Loafers - Via Spiga
Belt - Ralph Lauren

Well as I told my story in this post you know how we went from a normal Thursday afternoon to everything happenning all at once.

Naval Hospital where it all started on Thursday around 1 PM... 

Giving love and support to my SIL with my brother and father... I switched the leather jacket for the big and baggy black cardigan I had barrowed from my mom the other day before heading to the hospital. Knowing we would be there for hours I wanted something comfy...

And Here is me after I sat on an entire bar of choclate which melted right into my bottom! SIL was still in labor so not risking going home to change... Lovely right? Remind you of something? What is worse was this was the outfit I was stuck in for 17 hours after getting hospitilized myself....

And my ear rapidly growing in size, turning red in color and starting to hurt like there is no tomorrow...
I check into the ER of a close by hospital and the black writings are  where they marked the swelling to observe its progress. When it kept passing those lines I got hospitlized!

Now I am in the hospital. My lovely nurse over-writes the 'no kids under the age of 16' rule and allows my kids to visit on Saturday. My daughter requests milk like she is at a restaurant and nurse bring her one. My son is lining up her princess set on my bed rail... 

My nephew was born on Friday morning (5 hours after I left for ER). He is so adorable... 

My brother: The Proud Dad 

My Dad: Proud Grandpa 

It fills me with joy to see these but kills me that I am only seeing him in photos. Hopefully I am getting discharged tonight and can see him tomorrow...
