Oxygen Update

Today is Sunday, February 9th which means that Dalton and I have been here for about 3 days. It feels like a lot longer than that. I had a scary moment yesterday. I was laying here half asleep and my oxygen somehow came off of my head and by the time someone checked on me my o2 sats were 72%. They are okay now though and I am not letting my oxygen fall off! Everyone have a great Sunday. Peace and Love. -Karie

Hospital Update

Dalton and I went to the ER yesterday with complaints of shortness of breath, coughing, coughing up blood, fever, etc. We went to our local ER in Flemingsburg and Dr. Pilewski thought it would be best to transfer us by ambulance to Pittsburgh. I'm not feeling well and am barely texting as of now. So please don't think I'm ignoring you I just need this to pass. Thanks for the love. -Katie

I will be 24 this year, I am 5'4" and 90 lbs. The only 'curves' I have area hip bones that stick out on either side. I don't have much body fat. Recently, there have been many conversations and pictures that float around the news, social media, etc. that being underweight is gross. I see things like 'curves are sexy', 'nobody wants to be with a bag of bones', 'real women have curves', etc. all of the time on social media and other places too. Well, I am here to say that a 'bag of bones' can be sexy too. Just because someone doesn't wear a size 4 or 6 doesn't mean that they starve themselves. Have you ever thought that someone might have a problem gaining weight? There isn't a certain way someone should look. I hate when people are all about obese people being okay with having curves but I can't be okay with not. No matter the size, I think we should all feel beautiful! -Katie
