I fell off the wagon, oh goodness!

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

I fell off bad tonight. My body is going to be sooooooo mad at me the next few days!

Starting anew tomorrow, maybe this is what my body needed to start losing again.

    Just don't get on the scales for a few days, and you are right sometimes a shock to your system is good.

My grandmother, Lady Mush, passed this afternoon

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

She was 99. We nicknamed her Lady Mush because of the 'mushes' (kisses) she used to give us when she visited ;-)

Keep my mom and her family in your thoughts, please.

    well my dear, everyone agrees with you...plateaus DO suck. i just spent some time reading a bunch of your past blogs, and you always wrote so very honestly, and your true emotions. you had a lot of surprises and happiness and letdowns with your weight so far, but you got past all the bad times and enjoyed all the good times.

this too shall pass....and you have done an AMAZING job so far!!!! you are an inspiration to many people. i hope this stupid plateau is gotten past very deserve it!!

    Hi I totally know what you mean I have been on a plateau too, so rather than getting frustrated I decided to put away my scale, I actually made my son hide it from me. This Friday will be the end of two weeks I am excited but yet nervous. I think you have come a long way I was looking at your page you look great try not to focus on how much you still want to lose but rather focus on where you have come. You should be proud of yourself and your weight loss thus far. Be determine you will lose the rest of your weight. Take care God bless.......Beca

Why I have been MIA

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Well, its been a rough week. My grandmother is dying, granted, she is 99, but she recently got a MRSA infection in her urinary tract which makes it near impossible to treat.

Diego, my toddler, was evaluated for speech issues Tuesday morning. He talks alot, but, his intelligibility is quite diminished. The findings were:

* Does well with singular words
* Th = F i.e., free instead of three, dropping "s" sounds because of mouth formation (blowing air out of the sides of his mouth)
* Intelligibility (the clarity of his speaking) is greatly diminished when he speaks in sentences
* Hearing test with pediatric Audiologist is this Friday morning
* Definitely needs speech therapy
* Probably will recommend a therapist facilitated play group to learn to communicate with other children later on
* Concerned about not comprehending the "wh" questions, i.e., What is the boy doing? Where is he going? But, indicated this could be to knowing the question in spanish, not english, etc. They will look at this later.

Of course, there is a waiting list to get in to therapy, so, now we just hurry up and wait. In the meantime, they are ordering his medical records from his Pediatrician to look at his medical history and hx of ear infections, tubes and perforated ear drum.

I am suspecting, based on what I have read (see attached article link), I am leaning on hearing loss causing the problems. The article describes him to a "T". Wish us luck tomorrow with the Audiologist.

My weight hasn't budged. That is all I can say about that.

    My neice went through a similar stage (same sound problems and intelligibility), so I know how frustrating it is. Just know that you are doing everything that you can, and that he will be fine, no matter what, because he will have your love and support! xoxox tess

    Wow...what a strong lady you are. You certainly have lots going on. Lots of hugs to you. The fact that your weight hasn't budged could be looked at positively, as when faced with stress, many of us go off plan and gain. So kudos to your for not budging your weight. I will keep your family in my thoughts. Keep us updated as you can...

We went to Monster Jam yesterday (pic)

Sunday, January 20, 2008

We took the boys to the Monster Jam yesterday and had passes to the pit party prior to the show. Emilio got meet his favorite truck and driver, Maximum Destruction driven by Tom Meents.

Now, he is not one to wear his emotions on his sleeve, it is almost impossible to know what he is thinking and feeling most of the time. However, looking through all the pictures on his face yesterday, he has a big smile in every one. I think he even fell asleep with a smile on his face ;-)

I love my boys and husband so much and I love how strong our family is.
