We all have a cold

It’s been a while…

It all hit us hard here, Baby-Q, his papa and I were home sick.

And let me tell you, having a cold and taking care of an active yet also sick child is mega-exhausting. I still breastfeed during the night (exhausting as well) and am not allowed to take anything! I had such a headache two days and was dreaming of pain medicine.

Q was super whiney and was hanging on his mommy, he’s getting better each day but it was quite exhausting just to watch him not getting into any trouble.

We are all better now, I just had a typical cold for a few days, Baby-Q had a fever, cold, coughing, running nose for about nine days. We had to postpone the familiarization at the child care for one week later so we are starting that tomorrow (and hoping he won’t get the next cold). Papa-Q has been hit the worse, he had a cold for almost three weeks. Poor guy, but he’s better now too.

So, stay healthy all!

And so the cold & rain continues

With storm warnings today and tomorrow. It’s freaking cold! Some days it’s really really hard to stay positive – not seing the sun at all makes me (and others) feel bleh 🙁 At least it should be sunny on Tuesday. I should leave work early to enjoy the sunny day!
Knowing you live where the big with mass of clouds is located and you know it’s not moving – at all – CRY!
But, it’s nothing new that the weather is the way it is here 🙂

Too much Information

The online world, internet, is a great place. You find a lot of information you are interested in (or not) but you also find information you might not want to read.
There are so many people online daily, so many people blogging, so, of course there is one person (or two, or three…) who was falsly diagnosed with a fibroadenoma. It just looked like a fibroadenoma, but it was cancer. And now, after reading her story, I have that funny feeling in my belly again.

Ultrasound #1 by the gynecologist: Dec. 21st 2012 – Diagnosis: Fibroadenoma – Size: 5mm x 3mm
Ultrasound #2 by the radiologist: Jan. 17th 2013 – Diagnosis: Fibroadenoma – Size: 5mm x 3mm
Ultrasound #3 by the gynecologist: Apr. 12th 2013
Ultrasound #4 by the radiologist: Aug. 22nd 2013

I don’t need a biopsy, I can have one if I want it though, for inner peace. After thinking about it a few days (and reading online what the side-effects can be) I decided not to get a biopsy. But now I’m not sure. Now I’m scared again. The only thing that keeps me a bit calm is that the tumor didn’t grow in a month. That it’s still 5x3mm and that, normally, cancerous tumors grow quite fast in such young age.

I’m still taking the nuvaring, I have one left. I will stop taking it then. I don’t want any hormones going into my body, no matter how.

I think I’m still staying with “no biopsy” and wait until my Ultrasound #3. I’m not sure if I should make that appointment for March or April.
