We arrived at the hospital a little after 5:30am on Thursday, March 1st, 2018. It was still dark out when we got there but I do remember it was a little chilly. We parked the car and walked in. At the front desk the security guard sent us right up to the 6th floor (the maternity floor) of the hospital where we checked in with our nurses and was brought right into the OR prep/recovery area. An IV catheter was placed and two or three nurses asked me many of the same questions – to say that I felt like I was being interrogated is an understatement, but they were all very nice.
When I got her home she ran inside as if she knew we were home! She smelt my whole apartment and took an interest in my boy Charlie. Where he went, she went. Charlie is kind hearted and wouldn’t hurt a fly so he quickly took her under his wing. She slept comfortably on my couch next to me snuggled up to my leg, melting my heart with each and every deep breath that she took. She was comfortable, home, and it showed in her demeanor …

So it’s no secret that I have a history of dabbling with different diet and nutrition strategies. Recently I read a book called “Wheat Belly” have you heard of it? It really opened my eyes to what it is I really have been eating. If you’ve read the book, maybe you agree that the authorContinue reading “Gluten free AND Paleo?”
So, after a mental dump of everything that I had been feeling, I decided I needed time away. I needed time to collect my thoughts and figure out what my next step is to be. I shut down the social media and picked up a book.
In my experience people tend to write about their successes most – of course they do, who wants to hear about their failures?
