What's been going on

It's been a busy week for me and we had another scare. I've been pretty worked up this past week. After I wrote the post about my boyfriend we had yet another scare. My boyfriend had to make a trip to the ER again where he was severely dehydrated and needed put on a new more powerful medication as the other one wasn't working for his infection. My boyfriend was trying to drink a lot of fluids but since his infection wasn't clearing up he still had a fever and was sweating out fluids faster than he was taking them in. A day after new meds and being rehydrated he was on the mend. Today he got the all clear to go back to work Thursday and he was told that they have no clue where the infection came from but that it was possibly viral. Regardless he's doing better now and my anxiety has eased some. We still have a long way to go to losing weight and getting his liver back to where it should be but for now things are going the way they should. He's still taking medications for the infection as a precaution to make sure it doesn't come back but I'm relieved that things are finally calming down. I'm glad he's still here and it was an enjoyable weekend with him after he got through his last trip to the ER. He got to go to church with us Sunday and he liked it and then we went to one of our favorite restaurants and we did a nice long drive and came back to town for my niece's birthday party where my son played with his cousins and my niece's friends. It was a busy but fun day off for him. I told him he's not allowed to scare me like that again. I've had enough stress and anxiety for a lifetime. I know he obviously can't promise me that he won't get sick again because it happens but boy did that exhaust me. I'm so tired from being so stressed out. Now, I have some better news. I've known about it for awhile but I didn't want to say anything with everything going on. I still haven't told my entire family as I don't want to jinx things, albeit I know that's not how it works but I seem to have a huge bout of bad luck all at once and didn't want to chance having this go wrong too. My boyfriend and I will be getting married come August. We already have an appointment at the courthouse and have our marriage license and only a few people in our families actually know about it. Our marriage license is good for 60 days and we already have the date and it's good for a bit after our actual date. My boyfriend's mom and sister know and my mom and one of my sisters know. I don't want a lot of people knowing until the date gets a little closer and I'm more than ok with people not being able to make it as I just want it small with a few family members. When my sister found out she lectured my boyfriend about how he has to treat me right because a ring a piece of paper doesn't give him the right to think he owns me. She also said that once we are in this we're in this and there's no backing out and if we think about quitting she'll be behind us with a switch. My sister was more onto my boyfriend, she gave him a speech when we first started dating too. She has always been pretty supportive of us but she's always been kind of the mother hen of us all. She's the oldest girl and feels as though she has to kind of mother us. So, in a nutshell, that's what's been going on. I am still not fully out in the open with getting married as I just don't want everyone knowing in my family and part of me is still not sure everything will happen for me because I seem to have bad luck with some things but hopefully for once something in my life will go right currently. I am working at making some things in my life on track but it'd help immensely if some circumstances wouldn't get in the way.

Well, it's up to you and the sister kinda freak out a little. I hope your marriage would turn out well and good despite of the future hardships that you two might face. Anyways, congratulations.
