I'm sitting at my desk right now wearing Size 14 dress slacks!
These are the same dress slacks I wore when I first started working here 5 YEARS ago. I haven't been able to wear them in 4 years!!
They are a little snug, but hey, I didn't have to wear anything special (i.e. control top) to get them on nor did I have to suck in until I was blue in the face!
I'm hoping I can hold onto it, but I know it's going to be a struggle since I'm already slipping due to stress.
My son had his 4 month check up the past week and he's a healthy 20 pound baby boy. BUT the doctor is concerned because his head is misshapen and he has three places where ridges can be felt along the sutures of the cranium.
They are concerned that he may have a condition called craniosynostosis--a premature fusing of the skull.
As most people know, babies are born with very mailable skulls, that's why they can get flat spots and such. They are born this way so that the brain can expand and grow and their skulls slowly harden over the next 3 to 4 years. That is why babies have a "soft spot", it's the open area between the cranial plates.
In craniosynostosis, the skull hardens too quickly, causing the brain to have insignificant room to grow and can cause the head to become misshapen as the brain tries to find ways to expand.
It can also cause brain damage, seizures and developmental delays.
If he has it, he'll need surgery--brain surgery.
Cue "I'm a mess".
I was actually doing well with this, I figured "I'm not going to worry about it until we know for certain if he has it", but yesterday it just kind of...hit me that my baby might need to have his skull cracked open.
The option of NOT having surgery isn't very bright since left unattended, it can cause all those problems listed above.
This, of course, means I don't feel like eating, let alone eating right. I'm trying my best, but it's difficult right now for me. I don't eat to feel better, but when things like this happen, I find myself apathetic--I might eat well, I might not, I just don't care.
Sorry for unloading...maybe I just needed to get it out.
