And so it continues..

Tonight...is one of those nights. A good thing that we don't have much of anything to eat (pay day is tomorrow) because I'd be eating us out of house and home :(

For those of you who don't know, I've been having to deal w/my dh's depression and oldest son's behavior probs. Well, you can now add one more worry to my list: my 5 yr old ds. He, like his older brother, suffers from ADHD as well as PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder; for those who don't know, this is on the Autism Spectrum Disorder) (Jakie's is more audio-speech related). Anyway, shortly before the end of the school year, he suffered a seizure at school. So we brought him to Children's Hospital over in Omaha that day (to their ER), and an appt was made for him to have an EEG and MRI. Well, that was done on Tues. Earlier this evening (wouldn't it figure, they'd call 5 mins before I walked in the door!) our son's Dr's office called -- with the news that a further appt., this time at Univ Nebraska Med. Center w/a Neurologist had been made :(

This not knowing what the hell (pardon my French s'il vous plait) is going on is KILLING me! I can't even begin to concentrate on healthy eating, much less exercise. So for now, I go to the side of the road so that I can focus on my mini-me.

To those of you with whom I was participating in the HLC, THANK YOU for understanding! I am sorry that I had to drop out early in it and from the bottom of my heart, a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Audra and Becky for understanding and being there for me -- YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!! Keep up all the AWESOME and HARD work you ladies (and gents!) have been doing! God willing, some day soon I'll be able to re-focus on myself. But for now, it's gotta be my 5 yr old.

    Thanks ladies! All prayers are GREATLY appreciated! I'm just soooooooo tired of always playing the waiting game! First we had to wait to get the tests done, then wait for the results. Now it's time to wait for the Neurologist appt. UGH! When does the waiting end?! :(
    Oh and as for alone/me time? That happens when I: a) am driving to and from work; b) am at work and c) the few times i get to run errands alone! LOL

    I'll be praying for you! Still remember that you need to find a little time to focus on yourself so that you are at your best. Hang in there!

    Jer, I am very sorry you have to deal with all of this. And I agree.... your family needs you to take care of them but what about you? You need to make sure you are remaining strong to keep up with all of this. Emotionally and physically.

    I pray that the tests needed for Jakie all turn out ok. And will be praying for your family.

    Great big emoticon and prayers your way!
