Hormones are driving me crazy!!

My hormones are so out of whack and it is really starting to frustrate me!!!

I know that this is so totally normal, but I don't like it! It seems like I have absolutely no patience for anyone (except Addisyn)! Cami has been so defiant!! Don't get me wrong I know it is a normal part of being 2 and then add in the new sibling (which I am sure has something to do with it) and you have a diabolical combination! Also in this defiant age we have also reached the "I Can't" Phase! For those of you reading who have yet to reach this phase I wish you the best of luck it is a difficult one to survive, and those of you survivors out there please share your pearls of wisdom!

Ernie and I are constantly in some idiotic argument because I am picking a fight! I don't want to fight with him, and I don't want to get angry with him but sometimes he just doesn't get it!! Over the last week I have had to return to the hospital for myself 3 times!! The first and second time because I developed an allergy to surgical adhesive after having Addisyn!!! Which means that all of the areas that they used any type of adhesive on me during my surgery now itched, and burned ridiculously. Apparently I also had blisters in those area's also (but I couldn't see them so I was oblivious to it till I looked!!) The 3rd time was because my incision started to come open and was getting infected!!! Well to remedy that problem my Dr put in a prescription antibiotic (Clindamycin), and sent me home with gauze and betadine!
While I was already there I mentioned the Crazy back pain I had been having! I show him the vicinity of the pin and he "highly" recommends me calling the SAC ward and speaking with an anesthesiologist! Apparently they can fix it with a "blood patch" not quite sure what that entails but I will share more after I talk to the nice people in SAC!!! Two days later I am back at the hospital again with my 23day old baby girl!!! She has a yucky nasty Viral cold (which for those of you without any knowledge of small children there is nothing that can be done for her except let it run its course!) Though of course before we were told that she just had a cold we went through the dreaded RSV/ Flu possibility in which the Dr advised me that we were going to be hospitalized overnight when the results came back positive!!! Of course I got emotional and cried thinking OMG I am a bad mom because I let my 2yr old get my new baby sick I should have done this and I should have done that!!!! The thought process was never ending!! Thankfully I have an awesome mother who calmed me right down and told me there was nothing I could have done different and that sometimes these things just happen! She also told me just take a deep breath and relax that all would be well!!! And everything was (well sorta) Addi is still sick but it is just a cold and it is getting a little better!! Stupid doctors sometimes they just don't think before they make an idiotic comment to a hormonal mother!!!

UGH it feels like the stress is never ending!!!

My View on the Vote!

I have found myself more interested in political things this year than in past years! I have never known much about politics and there for have never voted cause IMHO if you don't know anything about the topics you are voting for (in other words what the people running stand for and your own personal view on those issues) than you probably shouldn't make an uneducated vote!!
That being said I have been researching the candidates for this election cycle and am torn. I am really not overly comfortable with either becoming the president of our country ! How do you make a decision like this? How do you decide who is qualified and stands for the right things if you can not agree 100% with the values that the individual stands for?!?! How do you make a decision that will not only effect the immediate future but the future of the world our children will inherit?!
Ugghh I am off to wallow in my thoughts of who to choose! I myself will refuse to vote if it comes down to flipping a coin in my own head! And the reason for that being I feel that if you can't 100% stand behind the decision you make than you should not make that decision till you can!! Just my 2cents good luck to everyone else in making there own!!

And another one is born!!!

Yes I did it!!!
I gave birth to another healthy, beautiful child!!!! Addisyn Makaia came into the world at 9:01 am on October 1, 2008!! She weighed a healthy 8lbs. 3.2oz. and was 18inches long!!
Everything about my C/S went well and recovery started off simple! I was up and walking around within 12 hours of my surgery (as soon as the spinal wore off) and the cath was removed soon after that! Recovery in the hospital was smooth sailing until I (like an idiot) decided I needed to lay flat on my back to get some sleep! Well anyone who had ever had surgery on there upper bodies know that if you lay flat on your back all of the gas that is inside of you travels to places where you do not want it and causes a great deal of discomfort and pain!!! So yeah I was an idiot and wound up causing myself a great deal of discomfort that was unwarranted! I got out of the hospital on the 3rd (Happy Birthday honey!!) and came home to an absolutely fabulously clean house (Thank you Wesli and Rachael!!) I was doing well till my incision started itching and driving me batty!!! Come to find out I have developed an allergy to surgical adhesive!! The reaction has almost completely healed up and my incision is doing great!

Cami is a wonderful big sister and has surprised us all with how well she has adapted to her new role!! Potty Training is still a process but we have not yet regressed any (knock on wood) and I hope that we continue on this forward path!!

Well everyone Ernie is back to work and I need to get some rest!! So I will add more later love to everyone!!
