Welcome to my first blog. I had set this up a few days ago with the intention for the new year I was going to write. A few things stood in my way. Madyson ( my 6 year old daughter) was admitted to the hospital for something viral that other kids would have been able to deal with in the comforts of their own home, however, she is a type 1 diabetic and such little things mess with her blood sugars. She was there for 3 days. I stayed with her as often as I could, it was hard always finding someone to watch my 5 month old, Colten, My mother and Noni were Godsend, they offered their care anytime they could and never complained if I was longer then I planned. While in the hospital with my sick little girl I must have picked something up cause then the fevers came pouring in. I have bronchitis and a sinus infection too which has made its way now to my Colten, on top of it, double ear infections. Matt (my husband) has been our rock. He's been doing our grocery shopping, our meal preparing and playing with Mady so shes not alone while Colten and I sleep. He is a wonderful husband, even if the house does look like a disaster, he cant be perfect at everything!!!
So besides all that, I simply had no idea what to make my first blog about. It's the first one, where do I start? Do I start off with my life, something funny, something controversial... I just don't know.
I guess I am using my first blog to explain why I haven't written my first blog. Hmmm??
On another note, I had to take Colten to the Dr's today to find out his diagnoses since I clearly knew he was sick. I didn't get to see his regular doctor, they hired a new Dr to help the one man show ( which I think is great, one man running the whole thing with thousands of patients has to be hard) It was a woman Dr Dana Crater. I am beside myself with the care she gave my lil man. She was amazing with him. Clearly a mother herself. so nurturing. I felt this was kinda lost from the Dr my kids "normally" see. My daughter has been with this Dr for about 4 years, I wonder if its wrong to only see this new Dr now.. I really liked her. I hope she never loses her compassion.
I have such a passion for childbirth, I had both my kids epidural free. I also practiced labouring in the tub. I would love to help women reach their childbirth goals. Its hard work but with the hand of someone nurturing, patient and knows what you are going through it is way more achievable. My midwife was with me from the time I went into labour till way after Colten was born. We sat in the tub, we bounced on a ball, we rotated positions a million times and she was with me every second. If I didn't have that I would have given up. I want to be that for someone else. I want them to always have that soft spot for the person who held their hand in the most time of need, Its truly the mother doing all the work and it is hard!!!!
Well due to this sinus infection my head feels bloated and airy at the same time. I need to rest. Welcome to blog!!!! .
