In truth, I was hinging my participation here on the idea that maybe I'd have my days left at work numbered or simply behind me. That is not the case however.
I cannot believe I waited this long to decide to stay home. My photography is taking off and spreading like wildfire. It is a blessing.
God does truly take care of His creatures. Just as he makes sure the birds have food, we will as well.
I have been meaning to post about my stomach. That will have to wait since I need to get to bed soon (I have about 2 weeks left at work!). Quickly I will say that the doctor I am seeing (Dr. Paulson with Osceola Naturopathic Clinic) is amazing. She is my coach, cheerleader, and guide. She knows a lot, let me tell you! I have had to make HUGE adjustments to my already adjusted (dairy and gluten free) diet. I am a boring person to eat with. It is amazing to me it took this long in life to have these issues.
More on that another time! My gut is still in the process of healing and it will probably be months. But in the meantime I am healthy. That makes me happy.
Calvin is completely weaned. It took me 3 weeks to dry up! My body was so used to nursing.
Weaning Calvin is/was hard and honestly I don't want to think about it much. I feel like he should still be nursing. But, again, that is why I am choosing not to think about it.
Calvin is doing pretty good. He is plagued with another cold that has turned in to sinus and ear infection. It is a painful reminder of why I am staying home.
Today was The Calvary's 3rd annual Buddy Walk in St. Paul. We had a very nice turn out - so much love and I know God wants these things to just pull us together! It was a year ago, on this walk, that Calvin was not doing well at all. He ended up going to the dr and starting his journey to hospitalization for pneumonia and bronchiolitis. What a difference a year makes! Yet, he is sick...
|Calvin REALLY wanted that sandwhi|
(The Calvary combined with Will's family - the baby 2 miles away who was born in February and has Down syndrome - what a blessing for the boys and our families to have each other!)
