Blogging has definitely fell by the wayside as parenting has become my #1 priority. I do miss it and I think I'm going to try to start things up again. So let's see.... The kittens are great! It's the first time I've had cats that had claws (both Shadow & Saffie had come to me declawed... front and back) and I have to say that we've had very few problems (except for when they try to climb up Marc). I swear Buttercup (gray) is Shadow reincarnated. She is, by far, the sweetest little thing you've ever seen and I walked into the living room one day to find Dylan with his head resting on her belly watching TV. Wesley has very little patience for Dylan. Dylan is doing incredibly well. He has a bit of a delay with his speech but we are in the process of getting his IEP set up so within the next few months - he'll be getting all the help he needs. It's been an overwhelming process for us but we're just taking things one step at a time. Me? Doing well except for one leetle thing. For the past ten to fifteen years, I'd get these random hives. Around the time this all started, I noticed that I had developed spots that look like freckles on my thighs. I pointed it out to a dermatologist once... jackass told me it was fat deposits. Well, it looks like I may have mastocystosis which is a rare disease where your body produces too many mast cell. From everything I've read, it's not a big deal. I have a 24 hour urinalysis to do on Sunday, drop it off Monday, then hopefully we'll know for sure and go from there. If anyone who may be reading this (Gd bless you if you do) and has any knowledge of this disease, feel free to chime in.
