A Break…

It’s been forever since I took a bloggy break…I haven’t wanted to miss blogging about my babies, keeping this little blog journal of our family’s happenings.

But this is the perfect time for a break… 
about a year ago, we discovered that I have an autoimmune disease, and then six months later we discovered that I actually have two autoimmune diseases. They explain a lot of things pertaining to my health, and one of those things is miscarriages. Apparently, it is very common for people with this disease to suffer miscarriages. Another thing affected this past year has been my thyroid, and my thyroid has been causing me some heart issues. So on Friday I went to the hospital and took a radioactive thyroid pill to kill my thyroid. 
The radiologist in the nuclear department brought this capsule in, double gloved, and opened the capsule. He handed me the glass bottle inside, and warned me not to touch the actual pill, then he backed away, and I dumped the pill in my mouth, and that was that. 

A side-effect of this pill is that I am radioactive for a week. I emit radiation…I have had the radioactive song by imagine dragons in my head for weeks, ha.
Sadly, since I am radioactive, I am unable to be around my babies. Ugh! It has been only two days, and I already miss them like crazy. And I still have the rest of the week to go!

Thankfully, the grandma is here, and we all know how much little M loves her some grandma. It sure makes my heart rest a bit easier knowing that the grandma is loving on my babies, and they are having fun with her!

I know many people have done this, and I have had quite a few tell me how much better they felt later, after doing this, so I am looking forward to that!

So…seeing as I’m not able to be around my kids anyways, I don’t have much to blog about, making this the perfect time to take a break, and while I’m at this break thing, I thought it might also be a good time to make some changes to the blog!
We have been “Waiting for Two” for so long, but we have our two, so it’s time for a change, ha.
I’ll be back soon, and when I get back, I’ll be a new person, and the blog will be a new blog!

See you soon!

    Sending you some extra hugs. I also have a thyroid condition. I can totally relate to everything you've been through. I take a special pill each morning that replaces my no longer active thyroid. Take good care of yourself.

    So sorry for your health problems. I also have thyroid problems, but I take medication for it. The thyroid affects so many different things in the body. Hope you are feeling better soon. Blessings
