The W Family Chronicles

Home again.

Posted on: August 11, 2007

I’m home from my trip to Knoxville.  It was a nice few days, but I’m glad to be back.  I still haven’t passed that stone unless I missed it somehow.  Plus I’m still feeling some pain, so it’s probably stuck.  That likely means he’ll have to scope it out…and D is going to be out of town when that is going to have to happen.  I have no idea how I’m going to manage that one.

I’ve done some more research on the hyperparathyroidism stuff and it certainly sounds like it’s the most likely culprit.  I was reading the list of symptoms and nodding my head to almost every one of them.  I made D come in and read it, too, and he was also nodding his head.  I’ve been having headaches, nausea, major sleeping issues, problems concentrating, general yucky feelings, random pains, etc for a long while and they’ve been getting progressively worse over the last several months.  How weird is it that I am now *praying* this is the answer?  It seems like the most likely, and it is so easy to fix that I really hope we’ve hit on the cause.  If this is hyperparathyroidism, my quality of life would improve vastly with this little surgery!  Now we just need to confirm it as the cause and get moving with treatment.  And in the meantime, figure out how I am going to wean this baby so I *can* get treated.

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
