It was just another manic Monday last week, I decided to go to the ever-strenuous step class that I go to every Monday. For some reason it was particularly difficult this time 'round. I made it through the whole class picked up what was left of my tired body and went on living life as I usually do. The next morning bright and early my mom came downstairs and asked me a very peculiar question "would you like to see a baby be born?" My reaction (mind you I'm dead asleep when she asks me that question) Am I in health class? DING! My baby nephew is on his way into this world! YES! However, in my experience babies take a LONG time to come into this world so I thought I would finish sleeping and then make my way down to Provo. 2 hours later I woke up and for some reason had such a hard time moving, wow that class last night really did it's job. I had a headache but decided to ignore it. While I was sleeping the baby was born (yes that quick). Lauaki Tua Su'a weighed in at 6 lbs. 8 oz. 21 in. He's such a darling darling baby. As I was visiting my little nephew my body started to ache and ache and I started to feel funny. I started thinking it might be best if I left to get some medicine. By the time I got home I could barely hold myself up, and I couldn't breathe....what was going on with my body? The next day I couldn't stand it anymore and I went to the dr. OUTCOME: Swine Flu. You guessed it...I am a victim of this horrible illness. I hope and pray that none of you EVER experience the swine flu. I have no idea how I picked it's just my luck (is my reasoning). Luckily my nephew wasn't affected by me and he's alive and well...and so cute! Life goes on oh-blah-dee-oh-blah-dah.
