I showered today, yay me!

Grayson is doing so much better today! Ever since our Mexico vacation a few weeks ago his dietary restrictions had been off and I've been enforcing them again since Monday. He just needs them. It makes my head hurt thinking about completely restricting him again long term so I think I'm going to try a new set of parameters. When we eliminated salicylates he did great, so I think if I cut those way down he'll be able to tolerate wheat in homemade bread and muffins (homemade to avoid preservatives). We'll try it for a few weeks and see how he does. Adding wheat would make my life so much easier.

I forgot to mention that when I took him to the pediatrician (last Friday) she ordered his allergy tests again since it's been a year. We went right to the Quest that's in the building but then had to wait 30 minutes. Yeah, it was me and my four kids sitting in the waiting area, which is a hallway, for 30 minutes. Then, when it's finally our turn, the vein clots in the first arm so they have to try again in the other arm. After the first prick Grayson is screaming and crying... and he never lets up. They didn't even hit a vein in the second arm. The nurse just stuck the needle ALL THE WAY IN and dug around which is the worst. So I walked out after 45 minutes with a wailing three-year-old and no promise of actually getting any test results. So not fun.

I think the stress got to me and for the past few days I haven't been feeling healthy at all. My body's been achy, my stomach has been hurting, and there is SO much tension in my shoulders it's giving me a headache. I tried to explain this to Jeff but apparently he didn't take me serious. Last night he told me I felt hot and that I "might actually be sick". Yeah, that's what I was telling you. Did you think I was faking? Anyways, he ran out and got me some late night Super Nachos from Roberto's and I woke up this morning feeling a lot better. Hand delivered mexican food is my medicine :)

Yay for showers! Sorry Gray is not feeling well and you too! Hope it gets better soon! Mine just have colds and shots and they like to share with Mommy. Umm, no thank you.

Sometimes it's like those people don't know that it HURTS when they dig around! That's the worst. I'd rather them just start over and poke me again.
