Setbacks

I’ve been thinking about how to write this post. Ultimately I decided to let it flow as it comes. I have been struggling with my health for awhile mostly related to my tonsils. I finally made the tough decision to have the very painful tonsillectomy. I thought that was tough. But you guys, literally two days after booking everything I got freaking mono!

There were lots of tears and rescheduling of plans. Mono is not terminal but gosh does it not lend itself to having a toddler who prefers his mommy. I’m sad I can’t get my tonsils fixed but I’m crushed that I can’t be there 100% for my baby. So for know I’m putting my health first. Basically this means lots of rest and fluids. Exercise will take a back burner. I’m hoping to have a flexible work schedule so I can deal with my fatigue. Have I mentioned this sucks?

And then my kid got hand foot mouth….so of course I got it too!


It’s super painful and I can barely hold on to a cup let alone needles. As for knitting….I don’t know what this means. I may not have as much content as I would like. But I promise not to disappear. Any positive vibes sure would be appreciated!
