This just seems like the most frustrating thing. Why do women's sexual organs start to attack their host? I have been having this pain on my right side for about two weeks and it has finally become unbearable. I went to the see the nurse practitioner this morning. My regular doctor is on maternity leave. The nurse practitioner is named Paulette and was a total glamazon, I loved her, styling from head to toe. You could take bad news from a girl like her, you'd be so distracted by her cute capris and boots to care. I didn't get any bad news really, but I did have to go in for an ultrasound.

Me @ 17-------------------------------------------->
I watched a great movie the other night. "Into the Wild," it is a book, and I can't wait to read it. I usually read the books first and then have lots to complain about when I see the movie. It reminded me of a person I used to be ten years ago. Before babies, jobs, school, divorce, pain and love. I was an immensely confident person, cocky at times, but with that came fearlessness. I was so not shy. I would laugh loud and sing out whatever song was stuck in my head. I would wear ballet costumes to the grocery store and see how many flowers I could fit in my hair. I would hardly wear make-up and had no concerns if I looked gorgeous with or without it. I had no fear of dirt or natural water and didn't mind if I got a stain on my shirt. I made or altered all my clothes, and in my junior year rarely wore the same thing twice. I was a bohemia girl, a classy type of hippy. I loved people truly and deeply without the fear of getting a big fat fuck you when I needed some love or help. I danced, I sang, I acted, I screamed, I called people to hang out, I looked for ways to push myself and push I did. Maybe too far, to the point I guess where I craved a closed mouth.

We had a great day yesterday. Camden made us all breakfast and bought flowers for me. Then once we all got up and around we went to the park to play. Elodie got to swing in the big kid swing and play on the playground. After a nap we had CAKE, yellow cake with chocolate icing. Elodie ate the whole piece and we were so scared she was going to get sick like Joaquin did with the sugar cookie. Monro made a lovely card and painting for my Mother's Day present. Joaquin told me "I luh loo," and Elodie turned one for me! It was such a beautiful day and here are the pictures <---Click it is a link!

Here is our little miss getting ready for her first therapy session with Emily the physical therapist from DDI Advantage. Elodie has hypotonia, which means that she has low muscle tone in her trunk and legs. Some other kids with this have it very severe throughout their whole body. She is just floppy and her legs frog out to the side when she is on her tummy or when she is on her back.
