It's been a week...

Ever have one of those weeks?  You know where you think you are going along just fine, managing it all fairly well, and then BAM!  Sideswiped.

Yeah, like that.

This was one of those weeks for me.  I decided over the holidays that I would establish Sara and Hunter with a new pediatrician.  I had heard wonderful things about the doctor I chose, and our appointments were scheduled for Tuesday and Friday.  Sara went first and we found out that her tonsils need to be removed.  Anyone who has ever had them removed, or known someone who has had this procedure as an adult, knows that it's not an easy one.  We see the ENT this week to get a better idea of what we are looking at.  Sara will be less than thrilled to find out she will be having surgery.

Then Hunter went in and the pediatrician is extremely concerned (as we have been ALL these years) about his weight- or lack of it.  He's in the 3rd percentile for weight and the new doctor asked me at least three times if any other doctor had showed concern over it.  We know he's tiny- and his lack of gusto toward eating began at birth, but It's just something we have accepted over the years.  He eats small portions spread out through the entire day instead of one big meal per sitting.  We have asked docs over the years about it, but we were always told not to worry.  Now I'm worried.   We will be meeting with a diatician in the next few weeks, and they did a full blood panel on him to check for any other causes.

Throw an order for ten signs into the mix, along with teaching, homeschooling, and activities this week- and well, I'm cooked.

Stick a fork in me...


  1. So sorry about all the problems you have had this week. Sounds like you have found a good Dr who will get to the bottom of all their problems, so sounds like your in good hands.
    Hopefully next week will be better.

    1. Thanks, feeling better today. I think I just needed some time to process it all! We see the ENT this week for Sara...

  2. Never a good time to deal with doctors and children's illnesses, particularly during the hectic holiday, Hang in there, All the Best Mary Beth
