so done

I'm so done with Paul being sick. How can he get sick again? Seriously, we don't go ANYWHERE, he has no contact with other kids. How is this possible? I'm so, so tired of this. It's been almost a month, and we had one good week. I want to sleep, I want to clean my house, I want to not have to change diarrhea diapers every hour, including over night. I don't even know what he has. No fever, no tummy ache, nothing, just grouchy child with major bowel issues.

I'm also done with him begging for daddy all the time. What the hell am I suppose to do about that? I can't make him appear when he's at work, I can't make him wake up when he's sleeping. Maybe it's a sick think, I don't know, it's just frustrating. I need a freaking break for 5 minutes. Add in the whole miscarriage thing and I'm just fried.

Have you considered food allergies? I was only diagnosed as peanut allergic about 6 months ago, although in hindsight I can see I clearly had the allergy at least 5 or 6 years, if not longer. But a lot of my symptoms were not the usual ones - nausea, stomach pain, feelings of general "malaise." It's worth considering - not all food allergies present in the same way.

I didn't know about the miscarriage. I'm so sorry to hear that. :(

I actually just thought about this while laying in bed last night. It would make a ton of sense, especially with the poop issues. I think we should start keeping track of his foods, it might be what's causing it. Now if only I could think back to what he ate before this! I was kind of thinking that all this started when he started eating more dairy (ice cream, milk) though he's been eating cheese forever and never had issue.

I'm still unsure of the miscarriage, it just appears that way, just kind of in limbo, just added stress (and sadness). So I'm still trying to be hopeful.

Julie, I didn't know you'd lost the baby... are you OK?

At the time, we thought I was losing the baby. I had spotting, cramping and the like. But all seems well now, and the baby is growing. Still too early to hear the heartbeat with the doppler, but at our next visit we should be able too. I'm feeling more and more pregnant lately, which is good! Pretty hopeful things are okay right now. :) When I asked for prayers the last time on Maryskeys, I was really fretting about it and the not knowing, the prayers helped :).

Thanks for asking, hopefully, in a few weeks I'll be feeling the baby and be reassured everyday.
