I am doing much better. To make a long story short, I had been insanely tired and grumpy the last 6 weeks or so. I was losing interest in things and gaining weight and just not feeling great. We did blood tests to see if my thyroid meds needed to be adjusted or for other issues. Everything came back fine. After some gentle coaxing from Cory I was finally able to see that I was depressed and needed some help. Depression isn't something to be embarrassed by. I'm not unhappy with my life or my marriage, I haven't done anything wrong, etc. It just happens. Sometimes the chemicals in our brains just get off, and we try to fix it but we end up needing some extra help. I think mine was escalated by the weather because I got really bad when the sun disappeared. Either way, my doctor prescribed a mild antidepressant and I am feeling great! I actually feel like a loving, patient mother again. Yay!!
Allison was transferred to Primary Children's Hospital this week to have heart surgery to close the hole in her heart. It was bigger than they thought, but the surgery went smoothly and the little fighter is recovering and doing well. It breaks my heart that a baby so tiny has to endure so much hardship at the beginning of life, but I know it'll be worth it in the end. She's doing great!
I would make some kind of vow to blog better but we all know that's not going to happen, given my track record lately. So, you get what you get and you don't throw a fit.
