This past weekend was a bit of a roller coaster ride. I felt pretty rough. I found out Thursday my iron has bottomed out. I am anemic, but it has always stayed in control. Since my hemorrhaging issues it has slowly gotten lower. I was not advised to take iron, but I should have done it anyway. I was suppose to get an iron infusion, but chose to take a higher dose of iron for 6 weeks.
Yesterday morning I woke up feeling even worse with a headache and facial swelling. Chloe woke up asking to go to the park after breakfast. I agreed, thinking she will play and I can relax. Well first she got mad because the slides were damp. We dried them off. Next she couldn’t fit, which she knows, in the toddler tube slide. Finally she asked me for suckers. I said no because we are backing off sugar for dental and health reasons. Strike 1, 2 and 3….BOOM!!! She proceeded to fuss for 30 minutes. Thank goodness we were the only ones there. I can no longer pick her up and put her in the car, so I let her fuss it out, without reacting to her. She finally stopped and was ready to go.
Needless to say my head and face were pounding. Thanks to a friend giving me some Ibruprophen I felt better in about an hour. I decided to invite my older daughter over and break in my grill. I was hoping Chloe seeing her would cheer her up.
So we cooked hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken and corn on the cob. We all ate and then went for a walk in our neighborhood. Chloe was definitely happier. She loves when her sister hangs with us☺️
Along with not feeling so well, Chloe had been on a grumpy streak since Saturday afternoon. Since my head was banging bedtime for her was a blessing. She slept all night, thank goodness 😊
Chloe and I finished the day with a pajama movie night. She fell asleep quickly after and slept all night. Here are some pictures from our day.
How was your Labor Day weekend?
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope all of you are healthy and well ♥️
