I've been wanting to blog, everyday. The hours pass, and nights come, and my bed calls. My pillow hasn't felt so good in a long time. I'm so happy to be able to sleep on my stomach again, it's wonderful! Brady is an excellent sleeper boy. He easily sleeps 3 and 4 hours at night. I have to wake him most of the time to nurse or he would sleep longer stretches of time. I was trying to fall back to sleep after feeding him the other night and all I could do was listen to "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" play over and over in my head. Apparently, short sleep cycles cause crazy things like this to happen!!
Sleep or no sleep, I'm still taken with my newest child. And I'm certainly happy that he likes to sleep!
Joseph can't stop rubbing Brady's head, his hair is SO soff as Jenna's says.
We are loving life!
thyroidectomy, when my para thyroid stopped working. That caused my Vitamin D and Calcium levels to get really low and I had tingling in my hands and feet, as well as my muscles in my feet, hands and jaw drawing. I mentioned that I thought this might be happening again so we checked my Vitamin D and Calcium. That was Friday and by Saturday, my hands were drawing and every time I ate or drank, my jaw was tightening. By the end of the day, I rummaged through the medicine cabinet and found my Vitamin D and Calcium prescriptions from my surgery. On Tuesday, I went back to the doctor and found out my Vitamin D, Calcium, Magnesium, and B12 levels were all very low. My Calcium level was 7 and it was 7.7 after my surgery. I'm not quite sure why this is, if it's because I'm nursing and was borderline low prior to that or if it's because my thyroid medicine isn't regulated. I'm going to have everything re-checked in 4 weeks and I have an appointment with my endo doctor. By then hopefully my body will be leveled off and we can see what needs to be adjusted.
It's nearly midnight and I have to feed my baby. I hope you all have Holly Jolly Christmas! I'm so thankful for God's blessings to me, especially the gift of His Son!
