Forsaken Blog

Why has our blog been forsaken?

To answer this question we must first answer another question: Why is Kristin so sick?

This is indeed a mystery. Some might try to place blame upon the innocent, bystanding husband. This may be true in part, but the truth's true truth would point to the dubious thyroid. Once lurking in the shadows waiting for its moment to arrive until now, when it can be a hyperthyroid and cause all kinds of discomfort.

Kristin has been, as of late, the victim of this terrible nausea. She can't even stand the thought of making her own food most of the time. So how can she stand the thought of blogging? Perhaps this post will invite a retort of a sort, and we shall see what saith the poor wayfairing woman.

Now let's make it clear that I'm just having fun with this. It's mostly to update y'all on our situation and give an excuse for our non-blogging. Kristin has been trying to manage her sickness. I've been working and going to school. And that just about takes up all the time we've got. We are fortunate enough to have support from all angles. Colin and Marianne stayed with us for a week or two and REALLY helped out a lot. Seriously. Our house is quite the spectacle anymore; organization is its new middle name. So that was great and we know we have family to turn to and our ward is very supportive (though there are at least a dozen other sisters in the ward that are preggers).

One more question before we close. How come Pook gets to be so healthy and strong when she's pregnant, but Kristin and the other sisters AND mom got the short end of the stick (each end varying in shortness)? Is it just the luck of the draw? Who knows. My hope is that this will at least calm itself with the subsequent pregnancies. Otherwise we're going to have to make friends with the adoption agency.

So that's our life. Chemistry and Physics for me, Zofran and PTU for Kristin. One stage of life I hope we can look back on without nausea.

Poor Kristin! I heard that you hadn't been feeling so hot but I was hoping that it had gotten better. It's weird how pregnancy affects us differently huh? I hope that you feel better ASAP hopefully tomorrow or maybe the next day... you are going to be a GREAT momma and i love you!

That stinks! How far along is Kristin? I think nausea is probably the WORST sickness of all. I would much rather have a headache, or sore throat...tumor!?? Nausea sucks. Well, it's nice to see you guys are at least alive and doing well (minus the sickness). Good Luck. I hope things make a turn for the better soon!

I found another one of your many talents. You are an excellent writer! Tell Kristin we're praying for her!

As for who got the short end of the stick, I'll venture the theory that it may be the sperm and not the eggs that puts your body into upheaval. After all, we've had our eggs our whole lives, maybe it is the nature of the donor.

Well the worst of it is over (thank goodness), and now that she knows that it was her dang thyroid, she can keep it managed. With the remaining nausea, Zofran may become her new best friend - be prepared, Jaren, to make way :) I was a Zofran junkie with Claire - but fortunately it is not addictive and has virtually no side effects (blessed little pill!)
