I am so very happy that last week is over. Aaron took the boys to the doctor Friday afternoon (while I took a nap to try to get over the miserable head cold) and found out Darwin has ringworms. Nice. Then, my dad called Friday evening to tell me of his medical test results, and supposedly he's suffered "two minor strokes in the past week" and has an enlarged heart. Nice. Then, while sifting through Griffin's backpack Saturday, I found a notice that he's been exposed to pinworms, which unlike ringworms are ACTUALLY WORMS (if you are squeamish, do not click on the video at the bottom of the pinworm link). Nice. And I spent the entire day Saturday moaning about wanting to shove an ice pick into my sinuses into to help the draining. Nice.
Like I said... I am so very happy that last week is over.
Yesterday was much better, as I finally got my mojo back. My cooking mojo, my list making mojo and my breathing mojo (yes, there is such a thing).
Yesterday I actually cooked an inspired dinner and made some gluten-free vanilla-lemon cupcakes with dark chocolate buttercream with Griffin (blogger wouldn't let my post a photo).
This morning the boys and I went to my alternative doctor to discuss Darwin's allergies. I love my doctor. He's brutally honest and awesome. He didn't know the name of the clinics, but he did know the names of the doctors and the type of medicine they practice. So I'll be spending the afternoon googling all this information to try to find the special clinics in Dallas and Chicago to try to take the baby to (he thinks Darwin's missing something in his body or has a genetic defect to have this many allergies).
Okay, I need to go start dinner now (yes, start dinner at two in the afternoon... red beans and rice... yum) and get to googling.
