gosh it has been forever.
what's been going on...
ds is now on an apnea/brady monitor.
it goes off a lot, but only some of the time are real episodes.
we;ve been at the dr office and at the er way too much this past couple months. ds's reflux is apparantly bad enough that it is causing him to stop breathing. another appt w the pedi gastro on monday out in savannah. he still isnt nursing,m so i';m still pumping all his feeds and even worse i think my pump is on it's last leg. a handpump isn't gonna cut it dor fulltime pumping, not sure what we'll do about that. formula is NOT an option. both kinds he was on in the hosp or doctor ordered it did not go wel. im not willing ot play roullette and see what else the poor lil guy's tummy might have issues with. we're still living with the inlaws, and my hopes of being home by Christmas are gone. (i'll be home for christmas BUT only in my dreams). i am still fighting w what i truly believe is ppd being made worse by our current situation, but am hopeful that thigns will start to improve thanks to prayer and the news below...
for good news- dh got a new job. he starts in January. he'll be worling pt with them and keeping this other job til we can get caught p on some of our important bills (yano lot rent, bankruptxy payment that covers the mortgage and our car, etc) electricuty- little thigns like that, and untiol we can get the stuff needed to make our home safe to live in for the kids.
big news- oldest ds turns 10 on monday! where has time gone?!? we wont really be haing a party per say, but we will be doing make your own pizzas and having cake!!! cant do much more than that this year but i'm determined that we'll make it up to him (and dd who had to give up her kittycats) in a few months when things are not so impossibly tight. i know there is a light at the end of this tunnel. it is just a longer tunnel than i had anticipated a few months ago.
oh, and i think i found a solution to the pump problem, hopefully it is still available and can get here before this one craps out entirely and supply is compromised.
more good news is i finally found an lc (not sure if she's ibclc, but @ this point i'll try just about anything) to hopefully evaluate us and see if there r anythings that i'm missing that could be fixed to get him to latch!
I think a cake and making your own your own pizza sounds TERRIFIC! Are you going to try to get meds for the PPD or is there anything else you can try?
QotM s to you, too. I hope your little guy gets some relief.
All our kids are getting so big so fast...the time really does go by so quickly.
I haven't heard from Tricia. Maybe Sandrine has I hope.
