My Breastfeeding Badges of Honor

It's been a while...

A few weeks ago I was trying to turn on my laptop and couldn't get the power button to work. I figured I was doing something wrong - don't know what but how does a power button break? Well Rob tells me it's broken and since my warranty is almost up I need to send it in for service but I should have it back by the end of the week. They fix the power button and call Rob because they found a bunch of other stuff that was wrong. So two weeks later I *finally* have it back! THANK GOD ALMIGHTY! I was going crazy without my internet. And that is why I've been MIA...

So much has happened in two weeks it's insane.

Tuesday April 24th I was supposed to have another pow-wow with Nick and Pam, however, Elliott Richard decided he had other plans. He woke up that morning with a rash that is common with meningitis. So while I was with my shrink prepping for the pow-wow Rob took Elliott Richard to the pediatrician where they were held "hostage" while emergency bloodwork was run to look for an infection. At that point the ped said that we had two options: go home and keep an eye on him or allow the ped to admit Elliott Richard to the hospital for observation. Rob and I went with the hospital option. So the pow-wow was between Gavin's shrink, Nick and Pam while Rob, Elliott Richard and I were at the hospital. Rob and I were a nervous wreck. Elliott Richard had a blast and a half! lol After 8 or 9 hours at the hospital, they sent us home because he didn't have meningitis. Their best guess was that the rash was a left over from the flu and MMR reaction from the week before. He's fine now though. :)

For those of you who know anything about our legal situation. The Hell it's been for us. The nightmarish roller coaster for the past 5 or 6 years...seems to finally be over. We went to court on April 26th. Rob, Nick, Pam, and myself all agreed to get along and do what is in the best interest of Gavin. So at least for now, the legal nightmare is over. Done. Fini. End of story. I wonder how long this will last.

Happy early Mother's Day to me. Rob and I went to a neighborhood watch meeting tonight and learned that a begger who has been in the neighborhood has been letting himself into people's homes!!!! At that point, Rob and I decided that we needed a dog. We had a dog, Hermione. She was a HUGE 100 pound black lab that we simply didn't have the room for. Plus when we found her another home we didn't realize that the legal disaster may be coming to an end and it was draining us. I told Rob when we had to find Hermione another home that if we ever got another dog it would be small dog. No more big dogs - ever! So after learning about this guy letting himself into people's homes Rob called a lady about beagle pups. I've been researching small dogs and beagles are really the only breed suited for our house with Gavin's special needs. So we went to a small town nearby *WAY* past bed time tonight and got a 7 week old beagle puppy. I've decided to name her Shelby. Truth be told, I wanted a mini pinscher or toy fox terrier but those breeds aren't well suited to Gavin's special needs etc. She's pretty cute. I'm just waiting for this to blow up in my face...

Ah...true love...
