i swear, i'm still alive. we are all still recovering over here from CA-RAY-ZEEEE-NESS. in just one week we had a torn tendon, an ear infection, croup and chronic headaches, and two visits from the toothfairy (ok, brooklyn's toothfairy fun doesn't quite fit w/ the rest of the family distress but what kind of mother would i be if i left her out?) i am happy to report that we are all on the mend. parker's ear infection....gone. hudson's croup....adios. mark's torn tendon...well, he's still nursing this thing...going on week 4! and me...yea, i'm the chronic headache girl. i've had one everyday since giving birth to parker. 6 solid months. at first we thought it was hormonal......(when can i stop using that excuse?) but after 6 weeks they didn't go away. my OB referred me out to a neurologist who then prescribed high blood pressure meds for me....not for high blood pressure but to soley treat the headaches....apparently these days high blood pressure meds, epilepsy meds and anit depressants are all used to treat tension headaches.....i found it odd but whatever, i'm not the dr. after 2 weeks on the meds i quickly realized they weren't doing squat for me and called to let them know. they insisted i wait 2 months and then i could call back and complain....2 months....60 headaches later...i went back and complained. well, not so much complained as just nicely let the kind man know that i was still miserable. so, he switched the meds and now i go for a CT scan on friday. i'm minorly freaked out by that....like i picture all sorts of bad things....and lots of doctors in sterile white lab coats sitting around staring at pictures of my brain and wondering if they'll be able to read my mind and realize i really am a little "quirky"?
at any rate....we are making it around here.
stay tuned tomorrow for two big announcements (i say tomorrow but it very well could be friday....) just keep checking. :) good stuff!
