The 4th and Other Stuff

I am so happy to be in bed knowing I have made it through yet another long weekend!

Grant, Tyler and I visited my aunt and uncle for a barbeque yesterday and we had a nice time. Tyler enjoyed playing with his cousins, meeting the newest baby of the family and broccoli (yes, weird child!)  The kids were having fun playing “football” and “baseball” of a fashion when some neighbor shot off a round of firecrackers and Tyler was freaked out about how loud it was for him, he was scared too.  We took him indoors and kept him there for the rest of the evening. Everyone says to try not to think about Tyler’s next hearing test which is not for another six to nine months, but it’s difficult when he refers to sounds being too loud for him on a daily basis.

On Friday I got my blood work back that my GI doctor ran and it appears I am negative for Celiac Disease.  I know I said I hoped I didn’t have it but now I am faced with Well, what is wrong with me, then?  I am not the kind of person to be satisfied with saying I have some sort of malabsorption issue, I want a name for it!  I am going to call the Gastroenterologist tomorrow and see if he has any other thoughts and try once again to find an Endocrinologist.

My mother comes in tomorrow for a visit that for me is too short.  Being sick, I can really use as much help as possible.  But my mother lives in another state with her second husband. After almost two years I really can’t think of him as my step-dad and that I have a step-brother and sister.  I feel too old for that.  But that is for another time, another post.

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
