Stopping in to say hi!

Postby missgamecock » Wed Mar 02, 2011 07:59 am

It's been a while since I have been here. I had a hysterectomy in November 2010. BEST decision ever. No more bleeding, cramping, endo issues. I think my hormones are a little low, so I am going to see my obgyn on Friday to get it adjusted. It's a little freeing to know I will never have to go through PE again.

Cate turned 2 on January 16th and is a little firecracker. She is right on for height, weight, and age appropriate stuff.

Sara was diagnosed with adhd last week and we started her on ritalin. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! I have my sweet adorable little girl. I was worried about starting on her meds. With her starting school, her issues just exploded. With medicine, she is better able to focus and control her impulses.

Kirsten is turning 12 at the end of the month. Hard to believe that almost 12 years ago I was in an icu maternity room fighting for my life. They say time heals all wounds. While that is easier, you always remember. Kirsten is a straight A honors student who dances. She is even doing a student assistantship with dance. Hard to believe she was that tiny baby I couldn't hold after she was born because I was too sick.

Just wanted to stop in and say hi!!

I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't seen you around and wondered how the hysterectomy went. Glad to hear it went well. Nice update...my oldest just turned 10 but it still feels like yesterday that I was in hospital waiting day by day.
