spring, sprang, sprung...
First off thank you so much for the fantastic support and ideas with regards to Bliss. I DO believe this is a growth spurt thing and after some great links feel his BMI is perfect. Sheesh there is such a range on those.
I am not worried about celiac, it is not always after eating and he does not eat wheat every meal and will still sometimes be affected. I have been tested internally during a surgery and there is none in my or the donor's family but I do watch for it. I am a Gluten-free Girl devotee so I am highly aware.
I did try to get blood work on him. I have the lab slip, but after the tech getting the needle in he freaked out and screamed and pulled it out and was not ready to try again so we are waiting a bit before trying that again. If I thought something was really up I would press it but as it stands now he is practicing staying still and I am not stressing.
I did get to spend 2 days in and out of the clinic and hospital last week. I was having severe pain in my abdomen and diaphragm. After nothing being done or even having my stomach or abdomen palpated at the clinic I ended up at the hospital. They were worried and after many tests it seems I had a ruptured ovarian cyst. So fun. I feel better now but I swear it seems like I have missed a period from it, I may just be really late, and since I am queer and single and sexless it is just strangeness.
HAPPY VERNAL EQUINOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (yes I am late)
We had a nice day save typical rights of motherhood like "shh yes you will enjoy decorating these eggs and no you cannot watch TV instead" and "yes you got a gift and I am sorry if you think it was more fun in the store than it is now maybe we should discuss graciousness when receiving gifts". But we discussed it and he is right on target developmentally for this crap and I am working on not letting it get me nuts. After that stuff all was wonderful. Soul actually found a few eggs all on her own which was great.
I got to have See's candy all the way from California and the day was gorgeous with no snow like last year.
Lu is working as a cook at a local country club and likely we will not be able to run our business again this year but we are by no means giving up. We just need to get some money coming in and pay some bills. It has been hard but we are really ok these days with a little time and perspective behind us. Also as soon as the damn high speed is available here I can once again work from home.
Weather has been beautiful. I am gearing up for Soul's naming ceremony in a little under a month. I PROMISE to write about it in my next post. I have to search for my pics of Bliss' and put together a good post on it but I will next.
Much love to all. Spring abounds with love and hope.
