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.

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!
Glad to hear you've found a pump and a LC! Wow, you have so much going on lately. One of dh's friend's son was on a moniter like that for quite awhile.

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.

mom2tig~ Hang in there.

Hey tb and rk. Hope things are going well.

I did hear from Trish this wk. I haven't talked to her in a while. It was nice to catch up a bit. She's finally done with exams. So maybe she'll drop by here soon.

@ this point i'll try anything i can get as long as it is safe for the baby and we have some way to get it. i'd prefer something natural, but @ this point i just need SOMETHING. i think if we were in our own place again that'd be enough to make a huge difference. my big kids need their mama back, and i know hub misses the real me. the one that is not always a crying, uptight lookalike. i've been reading in the ppd forum and nodding my head w so mch of what others have said.

Sandrine, thanks for letting us know! I'll PM you!

Mom2tigNroo, You are probably so right that getting back into your own place would make a big difference. Also then it would be easier to control your diet if you chose to try dietary changes. Is St. John's Wort safe for nursing? I have no idea. I am guessing the women in PPD talk about all kinds of things to try that are safe...Will pray for you and your family. So happy your dh found another job. Hopefully, you will be able to have your own place again soon and you little guy's reflux will improve.

No prob, tb.

Tig, I know your arms are tired but we are here to support you, yk. Anytime you want to vent, need support of any kind. Come and chat.

love y'all- just sayin'

things are looking up (i'm outing myself). we're a fin for the hh, and there is a new (to me) pump on the way. the kids will both have stuff under the tree, we have plenty of food, and the baby has the cutest little fluffy butt ever (no bias here, lol).

knowing that virtual strangers care enough about others to spread love this way just makes me feel warm all over. dh has his first day of orientation on the 29th, and though it'll be hard on us all having him work 2 jobs again, it is only gonna be til we get out of this hole we are in. i'm optimistic that by march we'll be mostly caught up and have work going on at the trailor and by Easter maybe be getting ready to move back in.

5. DD turned 11 (oh where has the time gone)
6. I turned 29 (eeeek almost 30)
7. Bought an elliptical trying to get more fit.
8. Lost 12.8 lbs since Nov 21.

I'm cranky.

I have an appointment this morning to get my haircut, then later am taking ds#2 to get his haircut.

The house is a wreck.

I am COLD.

And all I want to do is go back to sleep.

Maybe a cup of tea will make everything seem better.
post #1459 of 1530
Oooo, tea! That's the ticket! I'm tired and cold too. My brain is misbehaving a bit as well. UGH! I feel like I took nyquil or something, and I haven't! I actually had to leave work yesterday becaue I was stumbling and dizzy. YAY!
