I'm here alive and well, just went mia as life just got uber busy and for a while there I actually forgot about EB
, don't take that personally though!SG & Lex
you crack me up SG
Night terrors can start about now, Taj cried 2 nights but we left him as neither of us could get up then before we knew it we were all asleep again so I don't think he was actually 'awake'Heidles
Nup sorry just not going anywhere near that one
Hope J is better thoughEssy
How is E going with her growth and the issues she was having?STML
Have you started building yet? Or should I keep my trap shut RD
How are you traveling?
AFU well life has been full on. Taj is still crawling
yep that may seem weird yet I know once he starts it will all be a different ball game. All my girls were well walking by now. Taj has had 8 teeth for sometime now but I think those biggins are giving him grief some days.
I took Taj to the Ophthalmologist and no sign of a squint at all and he was her best patient all year, he just sat on my lap looking right at her with her funny glasses and light not even trying to grab them, so all being well we will go back in 6 months for another check or not at all (she told us if we don't see anything to cancel the appointment!!)
School holidays were busy, mainly for me as I could only book things during the holidays
One being an ultrasound as I have been having recurring uti's since my 20's and I've had enough, kind of takes the excitement out of mummy daddy time
so that revealed a 1.6cm mass in my left kidney which the report says is an angiomyolipoma (a fatty tumor) which is harmless so this was confirmed by a CT scan which I had last week. GP says nothing to do with uti's though
It was icky as I had to have an intravenous contrast dye injected as well, yukko, this also meant I wouldn't be able to bf for 2 days after so that was the cut off for me so the 3rd October was the last time I fed my boy (exactly 14 months!!).
Anyway that confirmed the angiomyolipoma and also revealed my left kidney is swollen, now this would happen during pregnancy (umm nup no way!!), a blockage or reflux sooo going on that I am now going to see a Urologist in 2 weeks to talk about that
The CT also revealed (yep it keeps on goin!!) a 5.5cm cyst on my left ovary (yeah my left side of my body quite sucks atm!!) so GP was going to send me off for another u/s to check it out to which I told him I am havoing one next week anyway as my gynae want to check the position of my myrena as my periods go for 2-3 weeks from very start to finish (since July
) anyway I rang gynae and she said forget the u/s next week book it for 3 months to check cyst and myrena as the CT showed the myrena was 'in situ'
So this is me lately
And to top it off my good friend from mums group (known her for 11 years now) text me Tuesday night (??) to say she has just been diagnosed with breast cancer
She is 38
with 4 kids (youngest in prep and oldest in grade 5) she doesn't smoke, drink or take drugs and she has been totally knocked off her feet.
She goes in for surgery next week at Peter McCallum and is naturally scared sh**less
So please all you ladies check those mammary glands regularly and carefully
Sorry that was sooo long winded, so much has been going on lately.
I hope you are all well and your families are thriving
