I suppose you figured out I decided to take a break from blogging. In fact, I was somewhat forced to take a break from a lot of technology as I had to get my work computer switched out over the break.
I've been on vacation from pretty much anything except our family and friends since Dec. 23. It's been amazing. I really tried to not look at email (ok, I looked, but I didn't open or respond to everything) and just be in the moment with Will and our family and friends.
That said, I have a lot of catching up to do - both at work, with our lives and with the blog.
This morning (Tuesday) we had a check up appointment with Will's mito doctor. After some confusion (not on our part) about who was supposed to be where and when, we finally got to visit with Dr. Koenig. It was brief, especially after a 3 hour wait, and really we didn't have any concerns about Will except some minor drooling which we do not need to "fix" - it was more of just a hmmm, we've noticed that it's increased.
We didn't want to go through all the painful discussions about health and the future, so we left it pretty short. By then, Will had enough anyways. I don't know a 2 year old who enjoys wearing a urine capture bag...
All in all Will has a "clean" health update at least in respect to having a fatal disease.
In other regards, we've decided that we DO NOT have a clean bill of health on our end. Neil and I both eat for comfort, and let's face it, we've needed quite a bit of comfort the past few months. So we've packed on the pounds in an unhealthy way.
So blog friends, we're going to pretend you really want to hear about our weight loss and you all can hold us accountable. Don't allow us to order bad food, graze at the office or "celebrate" with food. I've cleaned out all the bad stuff in the house and we're focusing on smaller portions, lean meat, veggies and fruit. I know we can do it, I just have to really focus.
Besides, I'm supposed to be a bridesmaid for a high school friend in March. Currently, I doubt the dress fits. I've got my work cut out for me. Just in case, does anyone have a really REALLY good seamstress? :-)
Happy New Year! I hope that 2012 brings us good health for Will, a healthy and positive pregnancy and many fruitful endeavors for Neil's company. Most importantly, I hope it brings us peace and joy as we continue to walk towards the great unknown.
Cheers to you and yours in 2012!!
