The walking farts….

19 Jun

I don’t know if it is an age thing, or after you have kids thing, or something else.  But it seems to me that older women have walking farts.  Take my mother for example.  She always has them.  Even at the most inappropriate time.  This weekend we were in Ohio and we were staying at the Hilton in Columbus and my mom had the walking farts as we were walking to the elevator and of course there were people behind us. But i think this one story takes the cake for my moms walking farts.  We were in babys-r-us.  I was pregnant with Emma and we were shopping around.  My mom is a very nervous person.  She gets all nervous in weird situations and starts babbling like an idiot and does this weird nervous laugh.  Well I was looking at something on the shelf and here comes my mom walking past me with the walking farts.  But this time they were not so quiet like they usually are.  I of course start laughing hysterically.  My mom with her retarded nervousness gets all freaked out starts kinda giggling and then babbles something incoherent and then PUNCHES me in the belly.  I was 8 months pregnant.  Then walks away leaving the smell behind her.  I couldn’t stop laughing and the multiple people behind us were giggling also.

Mom I know you are reading this.  I’m buying you some beano.

The weekend adventure!

14 Jun

I am sorry I havent updated.  This weekend was very busy.  I went to Ohio to visit my sister!  The boys ended up going up north with their dad.  They had so much fun.  It was nice to get a  little well needed break.  This is the boys on the “toonpon” boat at grandma and Grandpa’s house up north

Noah and Andrew on the boat!

Judging by Andrews face, im pretty sure they were having fun.  So those of you who are worried about Andrew his CT scan came back Great!!!  I am truly glad it came back good.  But I am also wondering then what is wrong with my son?  He is still eating very little and his lymph nodes are getting larger.  He still tires very easily.  This is extremely frustrating.  I just want to know whats wrong with him.  I want to be able to help him!  It’s the not knowing part that’s killing me.   His doctor wants to give him a little break from the testing, and I agree,  and then next week we will repeat his CBC and go from there.

Well back to happier things.  I asked Noah if he missed me…He said no=(  But im pretty sure he missed me because him and Andrew didn’t want to leave my side when they got home=).  Thats all for now but I’m sure I will be back blogging sometime today to report the ridiculous things my kids say.

Aunt Mollie and Emma going for a ride!

You are kidding me right??

Soo the CT scan today was a frickin disaster.  Andrew wanted NOOO part of it.  None.  Basically he was like fuck you im not going in that thing ..  We were there from 830….Till 11!!!!!!!!!!  I kept telling the technician he’s not going to lay down on that table,  Can you just sedate him so we can get this done please,  So FINALLY at 1030 the lady brings in BENADRYL!  I’m like seriously?  A,  Your ass should have told me to give him some Benadryl before we came in.  We wouldn’t have had to be here for 3 fucking hours.  And B,  This still isn’t going to work.  I was so fed up at that point I wanted to just scoop up my kid and say goodbye.   Let me tell you why im so angry at the people who worked there.  BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL IDIOTS.  From the moment my son saw that machine we all knew he was not going to lay down.  He was scared…for heavens sake he’s only 3.  And they wanted to put an IV in him.  So they expected my 3-year-old to get an IV in and lay down and sit still so they could do a CT scan?  I mean seriously, come on.   They were getting pissed AT ME because I couldn’t get him to lay down.  I’m like, hello what the hell do you want me to do here.  They had shoved us in this tiny little room for 2 hours after our first attempt and then came in and gave us that Benadryl.  The Benadryl did make him fall asleep but the moment i picked him up he woke RIGHT up.    The whole thing was a disaster and I swear I think every single person in that office must not have had kids because they all looked at me like I was this horrible parent because I couldn’t get my scared 3-year-old to lay still on a big ass machine.   Finally I said this isnt going to work and i left.  I called his pediatrician and told him what happened.  We are now doing it on Thursday at the hospital so they can sedate him.

Oh for heaven’s sake I still feel the urge to punch that technician.

Andrew In the waiting room=)

He was wearing nahhhniees glasses=)

The little things that matter

6 Jun

So I had a little melt down.  It’s really hard not seeing Andrew be “Andrew”.  He has always been such a great eater.  Always.  Every 5 minutes he would tell me he was hungry.  Today I could hardly get him to eat anything.  He is drinking his pediasure which reasures me a little bit but it’s still not enough.  At bed time he ALWAYS comes out at least 3 times and tells me he’s hungry and will eat a fruit snack or cheese or whatever else he can find.  And lately he doesn’t do that=(  He just goes to bed.  I know it sounds so  silly for me to get upset over but it does.  I just kind of broke down after the kids fell asleep.  I want him to bug me every 5 minutes to tell me he’s hungry.  I want him to be crazy and wild and annoying like he always his.  I think parents take for granted when their kids are like that.  I know I sure did.  We kind of walk through like oblivious thinking nothing bad will ever happen to our family.   When in reality something very easily  could.  In one week our lives have changed so dramatically.  My husband lost his grandma, his Uncle, and found out our little boy is sick,  All in one little week.

So to whoever is listening up there,  Could you please cut us One tiny little break….

Just pee in the damn cup already

5 Jun

So,  Yesterday the doctor called and said he needed a urine sample from Andrew.  He said we could bring him up there and they would tie something around his pee pee and wait for him to go or we could try getting it our selves.  I know that if they would have tied something around Andrew he would have flipped the hell out and clamped up and there was no way we would be getting that pee.   So I took Andrews diaper off  and me and my husband followed his little but around with plastic cups just waiting to catch that pee.  We were litterly on our hands and knees just following around his tiny old man looking butt.  So after an hour NOTHING.  So I suggested we put him in the bathtub maybe the warm water will help.  So we waited…and waited…and kept telling him to stand because if he sat down he would be cold( yeah yeah I had to lie I had to get that pee) and 15 mins later I caught the pee!!!!!!!!!!!

And tommrow….I have to get him to Drink the barium for CT scan…..

Well we have some results back

3 Jun

Well we got some test results back today!  His CBC is “relatively normal”.  He does have a high platelet count though.  And some other stuff but of course my mind is running in every which way and I cant remember everything he said.  His doctor wants to do a cat scan and some other things to see whats going on in his body.  So we really don’t know much at this point.  But I will continue to keep everyone updated.  Does anyone know how they do cat scans for kids?  Do they need to sedate them? I think the hardest part about this whole thing is just not knowing whats going on.  It doesn’t even matter to me what is wrong with him because I know we can deal with it and get through it.  It’s not knowing and not being able to help him that’s the hardest part.  Heres my little man this morning just lying around=( He woke up in the middle of the night with a really high fever.  His fever went down this morning and he is now napping.

I want to thank everyone for your support and prayers.  Please keep them coming during this difficult time.

Rethinking everything

2 Jun

When you are forced to think about your child potentially being very sick you start to rethink EVERYTHING about your life and parenting styles.  Things that bothered me or bugged me so much just a week ago make me think today , why do they bother me so much?  Like when there yelling and screaming and fighting,  what would it be like if they didn’t do that?  I think the silence would kill me.  When there all riled up and running around the house being silly and laughing and im trying to do something or im on the phone and I just want them to be quiet.  I rather have them doing that then have the house be quiet.  Or maybe that cookie for breakfast wont be so bad on them after all.  In 10 years will it matter if I gave them that cookie for breakfast? Or the ice cream they wanted for dinner?  I truly think that this whole thing with Andrew is happening for a reason.  Its made me want to change the way I parent.  To enjoy the moments that there loud, obnoxious and silly.  I want to enjoy every little thing they do.  Because one day they will grow up and they wont be this way forever.  I encourage every parent to imagine what life would be like if there house wasnt filled with laughing kids and loud annoying kids screaming and enjoy these moments in life that we have,  even when you feel like you just cant listen to another scream again.  Life truly would not be the same.

Its hard being a mommy sometimes

2 Jun

I wish i had something funnier to post about today. But unfortunately I don’t.

Have you ever had to pin your 3-year-old kid down so they could get blood drawn?  Oh man it is horrible.  It was the worst experience I have had so far.  My son Andrew has been loosing a lot of weight and his lymph nodes have been swollen for a few months now.  He has a few other stuff going on so there doing a bunch of blood work done.  I had to bring his older brother Noah with me because I couldn’t find a babysitter and Noah just broke down in tears seeing his little brother like that.  It was truly horrible. I will keep everyone updated on his blood test results.  I will not know for at least a few days though.  These next few days are going to seem like years.  It sure can be tough being a mommy some days.

But on a lighter note when my husband got home Noah said to his dad “Andrew got a boo boo on his arm and he cried like a baby”  Guess he didn’t want to tell his dad so did he=)
