Three years ago I was home sick one day throwing up and sick as a dog. My body hurt, but it was so much more than just a flu hurt. I called the doctor about it because my back was hurting. It was very weird. They suggested I go to the hospital and get tested for Spinal Meningitis. So I did. Well from that came months worth of insane hospital trips. They were testing my spinal fluid and I had an excessive amount which I guess makes them think tumor. They sent me down for a CT scan right away. They found nothing.
The next day I got into a neurologist. I called them in tears. I felt so abnormal and I couldn't move without pain and throwing up. He was the best doctor in the whole world and sent me back to the ER to a blood patch on my spine. That was an INSANE experience. I had spinal fluid leaking out into my body from the test the day before. Almost immediately I felt better. But I had headaches after that. And they still thought I had a tumor somewhere. So it was about six months worth of tests. All the time hunting for a tumor that they believed was hiding somewhere.
In the midst of all this we got pregnant with Baby J. Totally not planned. Totally a blessing. Total life changing experience. Other than my husband and maybe my mom I don't think people know how much pain I was in during that pregnancy. Preterm labor. Headaches that I couldn't take anything for. It was a hard pregnancy. However I always felt like he was the cure. He was to perfect to not be. We gave him the middle name of Remy which we were able to tie into our favorite team the Red Sox and it means remedy.
He has been a remedy for our family. He's been the cure for a lot of things. They never found my tumor. I still have times that I think something is happening and I should go back and find out what is wrong, but I find that diet has been a huge answer to my problems. Medically I don't think the answer is always a problem other than your diet, but that is a whole different topic.
Well- Baby J has problems of his own. He's spent a lot of his time in the hospital. He's been poked more than my other two kids in there whole lives compared to his two years. He's had so many tests on him. I go two or three weeks with out doctors appointments and I start thinking I missed one. If you ever meet baby J you wouldn't know there was anything wrong with him. He is so happy and nothing slows this kid down. He is inspirational.
The day I started my giveaway I had a call from a nurse about more tests and more specialists that we need to go see. She wasn't very nice. She kind of made it out that I wasn't doing what I needed to be doing. When that's all I ever do. A few weeks back I fought with them for this information so I could get the work done for him, but they denied me. So I figured I would wait until my appointment since it wasn't happening by phone. She made me cry. So I started my giveaway. And when it didn't get a lot of attention I stood back and thought about things. This blog is just a lot of work right now. Baby J has to take priority. I know I don't neglect him and I know the problem is the staff under this doctor that we have to work with right now. I understand. But I think I need to take a break anyways.
You guys deserved to know that its nothing from you. Its just that I need to take care of Baby J and he has a surgery coming up that I need to make my priority. I have five or six already shoot hair styles to post and I am going to post date them, but once they are done I can't make any promises of coming back. Because I just don't know where we will be with baby J. Girly Do's will not be deleted. I am very sorry I gave anyone that impression. You can still surf around and see what you want. Leave comments. Please still let me know when you donate to Locks of Love that puts a smile on my face. And I will let you know when Beans donates hers also. But for now this is me hanging up my hair drier--- as a good friend of mine once said.Baby J and Beans!
