Hard time deciding… (Female Post) 9/26/2014

So I think my story may help another woman out there.. Yet I am torn on whether to share it or not. Ill keep thinking about it as I type and see where this takes me..
I have had a rough year, have gone through female issues. Still in healing process of all of that. 3 surgeries within 3 months. Thank God that’s over.
Anyway, all appears to be ok for now. Just waiting for the shoe to drop so to speak.. It was a long couple of years with many troubles. Need to learn to trust my body again. I’m working on that daily. Its funny how something so simple can mess up your mind when it goes astray. Menstrual cycles are nothing to laugh at. Especially when they don’t end.
Well there you have it. So due to the never ending cycle I had to have a uterine biopsy (ouch), internal ultrasound, ultrasound of belly, D&C to remove whole lining of uterus, and finally the NovaSure procedure.
Novasure is a miracle! Was uncomfortable for a week after that procedure. Never in pain. Just tender, that procedure gave me my life back. I chose it over hysterectomy due to the fact I can’t take hormones. So for me it was the best choice.
The show The Doctors ran a show about Novasure you should look it up if your thinking about the procedure.

How our dog has changed my Autistic/Aspergers son’s life

We used to have cats. Persian Purebred cats to be exact. My son never really connected to them and in the end we found out he was very allergic to them. But we had made a commitment when we got the two of them so we kept them for their full life time.

Fluffy lived to the age of 19.

This is Fluffy

Princess to never be out done by Fluffy of course lived to the age of 21 years and 11 1/2 months.

Princess is the white cat

 

They were awesome companions for my family. When the children were little Fluffy got rides in their play shopping cart, swaddled up in a blankee like a baby and carried every where. Princess was the protector. She parked herself outside their doors at night and watched them. She would when they were babies lay on their blanket and watch them.  We got them both when they were 8 weeks old. After the cats passed our family missed them terribly. They were after all part of the family.

 

Fast forward now to August 2011. We have a child with life threatening allergies, so no idea can be decided without allergy testing. This child also happens to by my oldest, he is on the spectrum. Aspergers is not what defines him. Its just what helps others to be compassionate and try to understand where he is coming from. He is an awesome child.

We started allergy testing in September 2011 to see if we could have a dog in the house. After many tests and tears from blood draws and scratch tests we found out we have to have an hypoallergenic breed. So then we looked at sizes. We decided small is best as my son was scared of large dogs at that point. And we traveled alot in our RV at that point.

We started frequenting the pound/shelter. We decided we wanted a dog as young as possible. And we wanted to rescue one. We decided on a Yorkshire Terrier or a small Poodle. It caused many sad feeling every time we left with empty arms. So I told the kids I would just put us on the interest list and quit visiting the shelter.

January 1 2012 we got the call!! They had a Yorkie/Poo (Yorkshire Terrier/Poodle) The perfect mix! So I cancelled all our plans that day and off we went! She was dropped off at the shelter in November 2011 at a mere 8 weeks old and ounces of weight by a breeder. She was housed in an outside concrete cage for the winter. We were unsure of her. She looked too timid, wouldn’t make eye contact, Wouldn’t let us pick her up. And then the most beautiful thing happened. My son with Aspergers sat on the cold damp concrete and this little bundle of fluff walked out of the back corner of his cage right into his lap and set her head down and looked into his eyes. At that point my son said I think shes like me Mom. It was a done deal!

A boy and his best friend

Now people say We’ve “Rescued” Her. I Beg to differ. I feel she rescued us. She is my sons best friend, confidant, protector, at a mere 9 pounds. She is now 2 years old, full grown. She has allergies just like my son. Some of the same items actually! Corn, food coloring, fish, peanut oil. This dog is a perfect addition to our hectic family.

When my son used to come home from school he would be stressed. I had a rice bin with objects in it to comfort him. It worked! Now he comes home you can see the stress dissappear as his pup jumps up at him to be picked up. He bends over picks her up and she buries her head in his neck. Then the kisses start!

How could you not melt looking into those eyes he has asked me.

Now mind you this is a child that until we got this wonderful pup wouldn’t let you hug him without pulling back against your hug. If you don’t have an Autistic child you will never feel the heart break of that or the missed kisses, being told I love you Mom. He is not my only child. So I know both sides of the coin so to speak.

Well within 6 months of getting this little fur ball he so lovingly called Waffles due to the way she flattens out on the ground this child was 100% different. At first he’d pull away from her kisses. Now he gets upset if she doesn’t have any for him. She is always on him. He takes her everywhere. We have a trailer for the bikes. He straps her in there and off they go.

QR Scanner

With most businesses and products now a days using QR barcodes its food for thought to look at which ones work the best. Whether at the grocery store, Lowes, Church, School, Shopping from a catalog, in a Doctors office, now a days they all seem to be utilizing barcodes.

I personally use Scan QR by Scan, Inc. And of course your choices are different depending on your phone. Anyway, this may be helpful to read.

They discriminate against people with Life threatening food allergies.

We have been eating there for 15 years. Waaaay back to when they were called Don Jose. And my children were 2 and 4 years old. And have ALWAYS brought in food for kids.

Well tonight we were asked to leave. Oh I did after I gave them a ear full. And my husband vented.

I will NEVER eat there again.

I can’t say what I want to. Because I’m a better person than that. But I will give you a clean version. SCREW YOU RODRIGOS!!

Oh!! And everyone I know will soon know you discriminate against people with special needs/ food allergy children!!

Ok breathe… The children are fed. Now to figure out what my hubby and I will eat.
