2 Months Today

Yah , I know I say this all the time but where does the time go?? This is crazy that baby is 2 months already. That baby is just flying on the ticker up there! Anyway nothing much different with baby. Still growing like a weed. The last 2 nights she’s been sleeping great. Slept in her crib from 8pm until 12am when I woke her to give her a bottle, then back in bed until 5am. So she’s doing much better in terms of sleeping.

I went to my specialist today for my lovely guts and he prescribed Imuran for me. Ummmm, I’m kinda scared at the idea of taking this pill. Considering the whole fact that long term use increases my chance of cancer, ahhh that my white count has to be monitored weekly (not the best thing for a nurse!!!, since I’ll be exposed to everything!) ummmm, the whole hair loss! URGH. And I have to wean the baby because I certainly can’t breastfeed with this. He also suggested getting a tubal before starting this medication. Yikes. I am not looking forward to this. Needless to say, I’m a little down today. But I suppose things could be worse. When he explained about my particular type of crohn’s (since I can’t be normal, gotta have crohn’s/colitis, just about the worst damn kind to get) he said that I have a 50% greater chance then the normal population to develop colon cancer anyway, so given these odds, I’d be better off taking the medication. So there it is. I just won’t be doing anything anytime soon, until I have the baby completely off the boob, because there is no going back once I start this. 😦

Since this is just the downer post, I’ll tell what my son said yesterday at the supper table. Now this boy has to be the pickiest eater on earth. Anyway, we had pork chops and pasta for supper. He was sitting there, just playing with his food (as usual) and said,

boy: “Ummmm by the way, I’m not really into this meat tonight”

me: “why’s that?”

boy: “I think I’m one of those, you know, vegetable-tarians”.

hehehe. He’s too cute.

Must end this post with a pic of my baby taken today. Yes those are 2 chins you see there, 2!!!!!

    I’m sorry you’re dealing with that crummy disease. Sounds like there’s no win-win treatment, but you sure do have a good attitude about it.

    I’m sorry to read that the Croh’s is not so good. I know it’s hard right now, but you have to take care of yourself first. Healthy Mommy makes healthy family.
    And your baby girl is gorgeous in her pretty dress– your son is a little comedian. Vegetable-arians…Ha

    Crohns Disease is the pits, huh? We thought my husband might have it a while back, but it turned out he doesn’t (thank goodness). I hate that you have to stop breastfeeding if you’re not ready.

    I love the pics! She is adorable!

    Sorry about the Crohns…one of my best friends has been battling it for about 30+ years but has found homeopathy and diet changes to make a huge difference for her!

    I’m so sorry to read that you have to start medication for the Crohn’s. Hopefully it will ease some of your symptoms.
