I have been feeling AWFUL lately. I call it the attack of the migraines. For the past 3 weeks, I have had 2 or more migraine headaches per week. All last week and most of this one, I have been in bed by 8pm. It just hurts so badly. I am so sick of being sick. AND, I am extremely jealous and pissed off at the rest of the world who does not have to miss out on life like me. I put a call into the doctor and was told I need to let me body adjust to the new BC that I am on. She said to give it 3 months. I might rip my brain out before then.
In other news, Ben and I met with the Ear, Nose and Throat doc yesterday afternoon. He and I are in agreement that it is time to clip little Benjamin's tongue. Here's a little background information: Ben is tongue-tied. In retrospect, it did affect nursing. It wasn't "detected" as a problem because he had a great latch. But, he would only nurse for about 5 minutes and then stop. The little piece of skin that connects his tongue to the bottom of his mouth is connected too high. This pulls on his tongue and affects his range of motion with it. He can't stick it staight out and it looks like a heart-shape on the tip. He will have to be put under. The doc will place a little sideways cut and then put in a few stitches. I am told that he will be back in my arms before I even sit down to wait =0) I have a feeling this procedure will be harder for me than for him. The mouth will recover very fast and all he should need is a bit of tylenol for the pain.
There is some controversy as to whether to wait to get him clipped until there are actually noticeable speech problems, but the fact that we hope to be in a third-world country when he is that age was the deciding factor.
Kerry and Marisa....please feel free to comment and correct me if I messed up the description. It's great to have speech pathologist friends!!
