Lately...

This post is way overdue! I have no idea where the time goes these days. I thought that once I was back at work that I would have more time to update the blog, but all of my "free" time at work is spent pumping!


Also, I have been not feeling well lately, so I am just trying to get through the days. My Ulcerative Colitis has been flaring up ever since I had Collin, but none of the medications that they had given me to take were helping (at least not the ones that I can take while breastfeeding), so I went last Friday to have a test done to see what was going on. Well, my sister & Collin took me to the appointment since I can't drive afterwards, and they put me out to start the procedure, but I was so severely dehydrated & my blood pressure was too high that they couldn't finish it...super frustrating!

They sent me home to hydrate :) and gave me some really yucky medicine (please excuse the limited details on my medical condition as it's very personal) to take and they rescheduled the procedure for this Wednesday (tomorrow).

I felt pretty terrible Friday & Saturday, but am actually feeling much better now & am just anxious to get the test done tomorrow to find out what's going on. Hopefully they will actually be able to complete it this time!!


On a more positive note - it has been an amazing blessing to have my sister here during all of this drama. She has been so helpful & has really gone above & beyond in taking care of both me & Collin. Here are some more pictures that she has taken recently.
I know all moms say this, but I really do have the cutest baby in the entire world!

I'm going to have to agree with you and say that Collin is just so darn cute! That's so funny considering that he actually looks a lot like Son. Haha!! :)

Oh I just love pictures of lil' punkin' as we call Collin at home :-) He is so cute sitting in his bumbo seat! I pray that your procedure goes well tomorrow.

julie, praying these clear up for you medically. i have been very sick for the past week, nothing like what you are going thru i am sure...but there is really nothing worse than not feeling well - we can really take our health for granted until we dont have it, right!? anyhow, you might be right - collin could just be the cutest baby ever :) he is getting cuter with each post! seriously!! love...
