Today went pretty well as far as my mood. I am however dealing with a teething almost 10 month old and he just wanted his Mommy today :) I love that little boy, well all my babies, so much :)
I didn't get to work out but I did get to take a moment just to rest without kids since they all went to church to do children's choir tonight. It felt nice just to sit in the quiet.
Tomorrow, I have to get some cleaning and packing done. My oldest, Chloe, and my youngest, Gabriel, are heading to VIrginia for the weekend while the 2 middle boys spend some time with their dad. Shawn will be meeting a lot of my friends and family this weekend at the Virginia Peanut Festival. I'm so excited!

I walked...even though I didn't feel like it, I walked. I had a fight with my boyfriend and he made me so mad and hurt, that I was determined to get my hiney out there and walk so I could reflect on things that I need to change to get myself back. I came home, ate a little dinner, drink some water, took a nice hot shower, a melatonin, got my glass of water, and now I am going to bed. My alarm is set for 5am so I can go walk the bridge in the morning. It's time to start finding myself again because once upon a time, I liked myself. I am just the shell of my former person stuck in a fat suit.

My sweet baby boy, Gabriel (Moose) is HOME from MUSC! He got to come home this past Tuesday!! I am excited and happy :)
He is a tiny little thing though...much different from his birth! He turned 9 months old on August 21st. He weighs 16lbs now.
The goal is to now put the weight on him and let him grow without a massive intestinal obstruction.
He is like a different baby...he plays NONSTOP and laughs and giggles until he plays himself out. It's AMAZING!!!

My youngest son, Gabriel, has had digestion issues since birth. We have seen Dr. after Dr. Finally on August 11th, he started throwing up everything he ate. He hadn't had a bowel movement in 3 weeks and before that another 3 weeks. We rushed him to the naval hospital down here in Beaufort where I had to plead with the Dr there to please transfer him over to Beaufort Memorial. It was only after Gabriel started throwing up bile with streaks of blood that he did. We took him over to Beaufort Memorial where they immediately ordered an x ray, enemas, and suppositories and nothing worked so they admitted him. The pediatrician there ordered a liquid laxative since it was discovered that he had a major intestinal obstruction.
He started throwing that up and nothing was coming out the other end.
Another pediatrician came in and decided that he needed to be sent to the Medical University of South Carolina Children's hospital in Charleston (MUSC). So he was taken by ambulance to MUSC with a possible diagnosis of Hirschsprung's Disease.
Once we got there, they did a barium enema the very next day and then did a rectal biopsy. Both came back positive for HD. That Thursday, he had a Broviac catheter put in and then he had rectal washouts for a week. This past Monday, he had surgery. The surgeon took out 14 inches of intestine and then took the good intestine and pulled it down to his rectum. He is doing amazing and may get to come home on Tuesday. As of right now, he is being fed through the Broviac catheter but on Monday, he will get to try formula and see how his system does with it. Please keep us in your prayers!
