A mom's adventures in keeping healthy, keeping her sanity, and making stuff.

Holy Stress Eating, Batman!

I don’t know when it started, but I need to stop it. Now. I have gained about 5 lbs since May. I think. I have been too afraid to weigh in. Yes, I have a lot going on in my life. This should not be an excuse to overindulge. I will have some free time tomorrow afternoon, so I will create a weekly menu. I really do very well with my eating habits if I have a list I can follow. It must be a neurotic thing.

We still have no answers on what is going on with my baby. He is improving, but is still about 4 months behind on his gross motor skills. And he seems to stay about 4 months behind. We are working to get the insurance to cover genetic testing, but they are really dragging their feet on this test. In the meantime, we have been having just about every other test possible done, with no clear answers. I really think the genetic testing will tell us something. At least let us know if Sammi will require specialized care and therapy for the rest of his life.

He had an MRI done last week. I hated that. I was there when they put him under so he would not move during the MRI. I wanted to be there when he woke up, but he was mostly awake when they brought him in to us. He still had his eyes closed, so at least we were the first people he saw. I had a hard time watching them put him to sleep.

The MRI results came back as “mostly normal.” Hehe. They found a small cyst near his pituitary gland. This appears to be a relatively common thing and I have been told by a few doctors that it is nothing to worry about now, but to keep an eye on Sammi. If he starts to get headaches, then we may need to take another look at that cyst.

I have had 3 moles taken off of my back and am now waiting for the lab results. Cuz I really need more medical crap going on.

There. That is my irritable catching-up blog.
