Good morning!

I think it’s reflux but we go to a pediatric GI tomorrow afternoon. He will also be the final determination on whether we get the feed tube or not as well. We went to the eye clinic on Thursday and they did find abnormalities in the eye and optic nerve, we don’t quite know what it means yet but he’s assuming it’s from whatever genetic disorder she has.

Getting to know your cycles again is a good idea. What you went through could have switched them up a bit and it’s takes a bit to learn your new normal.

How is the school year going? Are you enjoying the permanent position?
I have this next week off-besides two days of refresher training- then we are back into another long school year. I felt like I had no real summer or break from it lol. Kensi isn’t doing well with taking a bottle or with suddenly letting other people hold her, going back to work will be really rough. She pukes everytime she gets upset and we can’t have her puking every time I leave for work. So i hope she adjusts okay, I’m realky worried. I’d love to be able to quit my job and take care of her but finances just won’t allow it.

How is everything else going? Samu is good?
We are getting cooler nights and it’s getting darker earlier unfortunately fall is getting closer :(

How did the GI appointment go? Do you need a feeding tube? How is it going otherwise? I hope you going back to work isn’t too hard on her!

The school year is going well. It’s not a permanent position yet, but next fall it should be if I do my job well enough... :) The amount of work I need to get done is incredible because it’s such an adjustment, and I feel like I am constantly neglecting someone or something. It should be easier next school year, but then again, I’m supposed to be pregnant or just given birth by that time, so it takes a lot to get used to the idea that my life is all about work right now.

Fall is getting closer here, too! Luckily we’ve had some warmer days, too.

I hope your week of getting back to work will go smoothly.

Good evening!!

It is officially a school night :( we go back tomorrow. I’m so sad to leave Kensi and she’s not been doing well with others lately. She’s going through a phase where she acts like everyone but me, Dad, brother and sister are strangers and screams bloody murder. This includes family who she has been around her whole life. I’m so worried about how tough this is going to be on her.

We go back to GI on the 13th . He ordered quite a few tests. He put her on a reflux med, an appetite stimulant, and a laxative. She has been eating foods by mouth, it’s such a huge step in progress!! Some days are better than others but she is finally eating something other than just nursing. He only gave it a two week trial period which I don’t feel is fair and if it doesn’t work then we move towards the tube. I’m hoping we can hold him off now that she’s eating on the stimulant.

I’m sure that with time and practice you’ll figure out how to balance work and everything else so it doesn’t feel like life is all work and no play. Even if you are pregnant or have just given birth you’ll readjust and figure it all out. I completely get it. Upping your work load is a huge adjustment.

This week will be high temps with really high humidity, it’s miserably hot. We’ve not had too much fall weather it’s still been nice, it’s been a wet summer but temps have been high.. The last few weeks have been more comfortable temps but we’re going right back up to way too hot lol.

Have a great week!!

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to reply! I have been buried under work, it’s ridiculous how much stuff I have to do.

How are you doing? How has going back to work been for you, and Kensi? How about the rest of your gang?

I just realized that I have a little over a month of being in my thirties, and then you can call me a middle aged woman... yikes. I am still undecided on what to do about the baby situation, as in should we start trying again or hold off indefinitely. I’m not getting any younger, that’s for sure!

Talk to you later!

We are all doing okay. Kensi is having a hard time staying with grandma when I leave, it’s heartbreaking leaving her as she’s screaming. I hope she gets adjusted quickly.

I’m sorry to hear that work is so busy but I hope it’s going well! How’s Samu doing in daycare?

What’s your dh say about trying for another, is he on board?? If so girl get busy lol ;)

My mother in law just got here so it’s off to work I go I guess. Have a great rest of the week!!

I hope things are looking better with Kensi staying with her grandmother! How is work going for you?

I’m not quite sure what DH is thinking about, because he thought having an afternoon delight today (both working at home today and Samu was at daycare) without protection was okay for him, and I’m supposed to ovulate tomorrow or Wednesday... :’)

I’m starting to think that I may not want to continue working so much if things don’t let up at all. It’s too much stress and too little free time.

Have a great week!

Hi! Sorry it’s been so long! We are finally done with sports so I have a tiny bit of time to be home lol.

Work ya back into full swing and going just as it usually does. The kids were so good for the first month then the honeymoon period ended and normalcy took over. How’s work for you?

How’s everything else? We’ve all been sick for almost two weeks, it’s been terrible. Kensi has her MRI on Monday, I’m already getting anxiety about it.
I hope all is well!!

I’m glad to hear that everything is going as normally as it can! :) Good luck with Kensi’s MRI on Monday!

We’re just starting our fall break, heading out today for a couple of days. I got a really heavy flow a few days ago, so I guess it’s a July baby we’re trying for next. I turn forty on Sunday next week. Time is running out, it seems.

We’re doing well, adjusting to the school year again.

Have a great weekend!

Sorry for my delay. We’ve all been sick, it’s been terrible with back to back Illnesses.

How was your getaway? I hope you got to relax and unwind.

Happy birthday! Sorry I’m late :) What did you guys do for your birthday?

We had to cancel the MRI, the baby was too sick. The anesthesiologists and ya were very uncomfortable with her being sedated. I have no idea when she goes next. They are supposed to call but haven’t yet.

How is everyone? How is work?

It’s good to hear from you, but I’m sorry about you being ill so much! I hope the flu season is over soon for you.

Thanks for the congrats! We didn’t really celebrate on the day, it was more like a whole week of celebration by going for a hotel getaway both weekends. We actually ended up visiting my mom as a surprise, and drove back on my birthday.

Work is work, and I still have to think about whether I want it to be as heavy as it is. Otherwise we’re all doing well!

I hope you’ll be feeling better soon!
