Sorry I have been so bad at updating! Since my last post I have gone back to work again for 3 days a week, while Tycho is at nursery. I have also managed to have 3 colds, 1 flu and one hand, foot and mouth virus. Yes..for me not Tycho. He has gotten colds from nursery but that has been it. Me I am a magnet when it comes to these things, and nursery children are cesspits filled with them. So it is a match made in heaven…or maybe hell. Anyway! Sickness aside I have been doing ok!
I am glad to be back at work, get the old noggin active again. Thinking of other things than what to make for lunch and when was the last time I changed a nappy. But having the 2 extra days with Tycho every week is gold worth so I am very happy. I think I got the balance right!
MS wise I haven’t been to bad. When I had the flu, I was floored by fatigue, but as I rarely get a temperature, it really messed up my system. Some of the colds also brought on tingly arm and leg. Had one day of feeling pain in my arm. That alarmed me as one of the longest relapses I have ever had, started with that same pain in that arm. But after a day of it, it stopped. Think also it could have been hormone related.
On that note, my body seems to be functioning normal again. I breastfed for 13 months. Ok I have to take a little moment and brag here 13 months!!! After that GP told me to back it in after 8 weeks! Ha! But mother nature was kind to me during those 13 months and things didn’t return until normal until well actually my first week back at work….maybe not a welcome that you wanted but hey ho. But as my symptoms always have flared up a little close to my period I guess I just have to get used to it again.
In August I am going to see the Neuro again. Should be good, but I don’t think I will have much to tell him since last time. Doubt that he will be wanting to put me on any DMT’s any time soon…touch wood!
Tycho is doing well, in true Tycho fashion he is taking things in his own pace. He walks well if you hold his band, or if he is holding onto a walker or a wall. But letting go all together is still scary. We tricked him a bit yesterday, by giving him two toys to hold on to and off he went. Manged to catch some on camera.
I still do think about the risk of him getting MS, I know I shouldn’t but it is hard not to. I try to make sure we go out and get plenty of sunshine as much as we can. As we walk to nursery with the pushchair everyday that is a good start. And yes I do put sun-factor on him and no I don’t take him out if the sun is crazy. But I am trying to drill in the idea of fresh air in his head, and he loves being outside. His favourite place is however in costa coffee downtown. Where he flirts something terrible with a barista, and shouts happily at all guests. He has been dubbed their youngest regular and favourite customer. Not bad for a 15 month old!
