Back Again

 Well, I sure wish she would have smiled like this for her pictures yesterday! Most adorable thing ever. I always have to explain to people that Sarah is kind of serious. Ha! Oh well! I did not get enough weekend! I am really going to try to take it easy this week...I've been feeling really burned out.
 I think I am finally finished putting away the clothes that Heather sent to Sarah. We have all of Hallie's clothes, shoes, dress up clothes, etc. through 4T. It was a chore and a half to put all of that away. I also went back through all of her newborn-9 month stuff and pulled out what I won't use next time, if I ever have another girl. I have a pile of stuff for charity!
 I wonder what the kids will be like at school this week-the week after our testing and a day off for them for conferences. I have a feeling they aren't going to be much into school.
 Once again she is back to squinting at the flash. It is so, so funny. It's like she knows that she is supposed to smile, but doesn't want to keep her eyes open. I hurt her feelings earlier. She was chewing on the GLASS tabletop, so I thumped the back of her thigh (that doesn't look right) three times really fast and boy, it sure got her attention. Poor little thing!
 She said peek a boo several times today.
I am off to cook. I want to update you on my medical situation, for lack of a better term. Well, my thyroid levels were normal-finally-in February.  At that time, I had been experiencing tingling in my hands and feet in the mornings. So, she checked my calcium and it was low. Well, over the past month I have taken calcium, but a couple of weeks ago, I was really not feeling well at all, so I asked for more labs. So, 4 were abnormal. My thyroid is off AGAIN, my iron was low, my B12 was low, and also I have some sort of condition called hypoparathyroidism, which is NOT my thyroid. It has to do with calcium and vitamin D absorption. Good grief. The doctor is not sure why I have developed this. I am still experiencing the tingling in my hands and feet in the morning. In addition to this, I am experiencing strange sensations and pain in my upper left abdomen at times, so I am going to a gastro doctor. I kind of feel like a mess and I am tired of it. I don't know how much to expect from myself in this condition, as far as working-how hard? And I would like to try to lose weight, but that cannot even be a concern right now. If you want to pray for me, I would really appreciate that. It has almost been 2 years since I found out that I had a thyroid problem, and things still aren't resolved. Thanks.


  1. YOu have my prayers. Your health really is the number one thing to focus on right now....well after that little cutie! I hope the doctors are able to figure something out.

  2. wow. you've got a lot going on. will definitely keep you in my prayers.

  3. Love the new pics of Sarah! You know you have my prayers.
