My sanity is around here somewhere....

So, as I am sure you have figured out, the sick bug has been visiting our house. That is not my only reason for not posting though, I haven't been able to log into blogger since the 9th! I rebooted my computer last night and it is now working, so i am not sure if it was a blogger issue or a windows issue, I am guessing both.
We finally got into the doctor this morning, now that everyone is feeling better. Monkey has some 'noise' in his chest and a red ear, so we are taking a watch and see approach. Everyone else is fairly fine now.
Zed is growing, he is now over 15 lbs, so sticking tightly to his growth curve. He had a click in his hip so we are going for x-ray this week, we will make it a family affair. Superboy needs a back x-ray due to winning the genetic lottery like his momma. (I inherited slight scoliosis from my mama and some 'hunching' from my dad. My back doesn't look too bad, but I am experiencing more pain now, especially considering my abysmal fitness level right now.) Daddy also needs an x-ray of his chest. Fun!
The doc is sending me for bloodwork as well; iron, hormones, blood sugar. Fun. But better safe than sorry. Surprisingly she didn't ask me about depression. Usually when I am post-partum and complaining of tiredness, sleeplessness and lack of energy that is the first thing I am questioned about. But I honestly don't think I am depressed so I guess that is fine. I actually feel better emotionally than I have in a couple of years. Very little anxiety, hopeful, content. Feels a bit strange actually! But I am thankful that my mental state is good, otherwise I would be pretty freaked about my lack of sleep and lack of hair...
Anyway, we are on the mend, I am digging my way up out of the laundry pile and mess. I actually had a fairly clean house yesterday, 7 folded baskets of laundry, made dinner and a cake. It was a fabulous day. We even did some school. Which reminds me, I need to go crack the whip now, get the school day done and the chores started.
Talk to you soon and thanks for all the healthy wishes, they worked!

  1. I've read so many of these "the plague has hit our home" blog entries in the last couple of weeks. We've so far avoided it, but I'm sure our turn is coming. Glad to hear you're all on the mend.

  2. Sorry you guys are still sick. Did your doctor prescribe vitamins for your sleeplessness and lack of energy. Calcium, vitamin B and omega fish oil really helped me to get everything back in order for me.

    It sounds like you are getting the group discount! heh Really, that is quite the xray schedule.

  8. Sorry everyone is sick. But it sounds like you're all in pretty good spirits! Little Elvis' hip clicked when he was that age, too. We had to take him for an x-ray, but everything was fine. Hope all your x-rays go well!
