I have bad news for those of you who have been following my "extreme lemon" saga. The lemon tree on the side of our house produced one lemon and it grew to the size of an eggplant. Even the neighbors and their kids were watching the development of this huge thing. Anyways, it vanished the other day. Andrew came in from taking out the recycling and said, "Um, the lemon is gone and it is nowhere to be found." I ran outside and scoured the ground to see if I could find it. You know who I think stole my precious lemon? The Comcast guys. They were fixing the cable for the neighbors and suddenly my lemon is gone. I know it is rude to accuse people of theft, but it is the only explanation to this mystery. So if you are the Comcast guys and you read this blog, please return our lemon so we can have some closure.

Also, I thought you might like to see the response from my OB. I was sending him daily emails with my blood pressure reading. Yesterday, I stopped sending them to him and decided to log them in case he asked. He beat me to the punch by emailing me this:

hi shannon
thanks for this.
looking much better.
will not have a seizure with these numbers
pls send me a last update on wednesday and then you can stop checking if all remains good.
pls see me in a few weeks as we had talked about
you will be fine
hope the nursing and lack of sleep is going well
dr r

I guess I came off a bit nervous! Glad I am going to survive.

You want some lemons? I have a meyer lemon tree. It spawns lemons all year round. They make good lemonade; not too sour. It has never produced any gourd sized lemons.
