Holy Hell!!!...I got in on this conversation a little late. : )
Chassity...I hope your clot is nothing serious! Isn't it nice when you are delivered information by medical professionals but then told "but we don't know what it means"? What? Really?! It's like during my c-section the doctor and nurses were talking about
how lucky we were my son was still alive! They used words like 'tragedy' and 'miracle' that he was born when he was...as my water ruptured (I was reminded of the movie The Coneheads when my water broke...MESSY) and my body wasn't ready so we used pitocin and his heart rate decreased with each contraction to later learn the chord was around his neck three times and the chord and placenta were under developed...anyway, yeah, I was awake during all this chit chat...had just glimpsed at my son before my husband and him went back to the room, and I was just laying there listening to this tummy talk as they stitched me up. I was so mad!!! Not mention overly emotional b/c my baby was just delivered, he wasn't with me, and I was mad b/c I couldn't see or feel anything that was going on behind the blue curtain. Not saying I really wanted to, but that's part my control issue.
I thought your first post was super funny...OHIO you made me laugh with your basement stair comment! My son is light sleeper and I never really did any late night cleaning with the roids. However, I am still on them and have the lovely fat face and hump on my neck. Not to mention my fat bootie and tubby tummy...I'm just gorgeous! My husband really is super awesome b/c I look nothing like when we got married, or at the start of our pregnancy for that matter.
I have random thoughts constantly...always have really. So, it's all good!!!
I'm super happy today b/c my client that drives me up the wall is sick...darn...and b/c my immune system is crap I really shouldn't be around him. : ) Again...darn. : ) I wasn't able to see them last Friday either b/c my UC was angry. It's not really a biggie if they're not seen b/c we're going to place the son anyway...it should have happened before now, but better late than never. My job is actually to prevent the removal of children but in this case I would not have it any other way.
I'm good with starting a thread about
random discussions. I also have become addicted to this site b/c I feel we are each in such unique situations that no matter how hard our family and friends try to understand they really can't. It's one thing to watch, support and be involved with someone going through what we have and are still going through, and it's another to have actually experienced it. So, having found this site and more this ostomy forum over the UC forum, I feel just so...happy! : ) I do enjoy the UC site, but b/c my case seems more severe than most I felt that some just didn't fully understand my struggles. I was very tired of being asked if I tried diets and nutritional changes and fecal transplants (GROSS!!!) before my decision for surgery. Then to be honest my diet has only been 50% restricted b/c really it doesn't matter what I eat for the most part b/c I'm in a constant flare and EVERYTHING hurts as it goes through...just some worse than others, so those were the foods cut...like spices, pickles, fiber, fried foods, high lactose...etc.
So, that's my input. : )
Is it bad that my son likes TV? He's talking and laughing with Dora right now...but also climbing out of the recliner practice walking...so maybe he's not that addicted...but still...I think he watches too much TV. Hmm.
Oh, but he's off the bottle!!! : ) He's now gone three days without one and I have them packed and ready for storage! It was extremely bittersweet, as my baby is growing up...but we use Dr. Brown's bottles and they are a pill to clean!

Life has never been so sweet! I appreciate the small things in life...the little joys that occur every second of every day. Though we struggle and have crazy complications, nothing can over ride our love and happiness.
Surgery is scheduled for February 6th!!! : ) Yea!!!!!!!!!!
