No Longer Worrying about David's Allergies. @ 04:54 pm

His tests came back completely negative to all major allergens, plus a few of the foods we had already introduced him to (rice and oats).  He has a slight sensitivity to wheat (they like to see the "number" under 3.5, his was .5) and where normally this would be a non-issue, in our family he will avoid all wheat foods for a few months to convince his immune system to forget it.

He's just got eczema.  Okey dokey, we can deal with that!  It does look better when we take him off excessive amounts of formula, though, so we'll go with that, minus the worry.  I have no problems with nursing him more.

Now what to worry about?  Oh, yeah.  My thyroid results.  They aren't good... all numbers are dropping which is still indicating a thyroid "burn out".  I guess I insulted it enough and it refuses to play at all anymore.  Fair enough, but just so long as this doesn't disqualify me from my laproscopic surgery next week (getting my tubes tied).   Yesterday at my pre-surgery appointment the nurse joked that I must be really relaxed about my surgery because my blood pressure was 89/60.  Uh, no.  That's because y'all just took 20 vials of blood over three days.  I lost a POUND in blood over that time span. 

Oh, and I wanted to acknowledge the universe's little joke on me:  yes, I've been sanctimonious about my approach to baby-sleep issues.  Yes, I realize that David has slowly but surely made his way into our bed.  Point humbly taken.  Not that I'm going to let it rest, though.

That's okay. By the time he's two, you'll be completely used to sharing a bed with him.

Co-sleeping I have no problem with. Co-playing with mommy's face and generally being a pain in the butt at 3:30 am (however cute he is) not so much. He's now sleeping in his crib after about an hour of fussing. Most.stubborn.kid.I've.had. He didn't just cry like the other kids. He yelled, chatted, talked, whined, yelled some more, cried a bit, slept, woke up, ate, played with my face, chatted, yelled a bit, and is now sleeping.

I'm so proud :)
