I’ve Been A Busy Little Beaver

imagesHello, hello, hello!!!  I can’t even remember the last time I was able to blog.  My mind is exploding with thoughts but I seriously have no time to blog anymore.  The only reason I am able to today is I’m sitting in jury duty waiting to possibly be called.  This sucks!

So what have I been up to?  First and foremost I’ve been raising Jackson, which is a 24/7 job in itself.  Additionally I work full time.  Remember the days when I could blog at work- yeah, those days are over.  They actually have me working now so no such luck on the blog front.

Jackson is now 19 months old and a full on beast.  He’s 30 lbs and 34 inches.  Hes’s very advanced for his age and keeps my head spinning constantly.  Holy shit- never thought it would be this hard OR this rewarding.

In the past 19 months I have dealt with so much- half of which I don’t have words for and most that require their own blog post.

Highs-

  • being a mom, which has been all that I have dreamed of but also brings…

Lows-

  • postpartum depression and anxiety (one sucks but to have both is mind blowing!)
  • marital stress
  • diastasis recti
  • Jackson’s health
    • fistula surgery at 5 1/2 months
    • RSV and pneumonia at 7 months
    • 7 stitches in his forehead at 18 months
    • monthly daycare illness

In addition to all of that I was diagnosed with Lupus and my cervix issues have resurfaced in the angriest of ways.  I’ve had a few surgeries and have been seeing an oncologist.  We had wanted to do an embryo transfer this past summer when Jackson turned one.  Unfortunately the Lupus and my stupid cervix destroyed that plan.  Fingers crossed my oncologist will clear me for a transfer after I have another biopsy mid-April.

I hope everyone has been been doing well and all the once empty arms are full now.  I really miss blogging and hope to find the time to get back to it soon.  I also would like to be able to update my other blog  Parenting A to Z with products reviews and words of wisdom- God knows my little one has taught me much more than I ever expected.

Bye for now!
