Shutterfly Holiday Cards (and a giveaway!)


Even though I know it's only November 3rd, it's already time to think about Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and/or Yule. For me, it also means it's time to start planning what I'm doing for Holiday Cards this year. This year, I'm going to be ordering from Shutterfly.  With 322 different styles, there's sure to be a design that fits your needs. Here are the four designs I'm contemplating on:

A discussion with the doctor #NHBPM

This was a few years ago, but the emotions from that conversation still hold me even to this day.

We went down to Yale Children's Hospital for a regular follow up visit to the gastroenterologist (GI). Alvin has had issues with his bowels and constipation since birth. During this visit, the GI repeatedly told me that all test results, biopsies, scans, endoscopies, etc, had all come back completely normal. -I- must be the reason that he wasn't gaining weight and his bowels weren't functioning properly. That he had no choice but to call Children's Protective Services (CPS) and report me for possible child abuse and Munchausen by proxy. And he did.


Yes, I know I'm several days past Halloween, and extremely late in posting these. Things have been crazy with Superstorm Sandy coming through, then with eight days straight of rain, etc. So, without further ado..

The weirdest thing ... #NHBPM

about my son's health?

Why I write about health #NHBPM

I choose to write about health topics simply to bring awareness. As many of you know, my son was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, apraxia of speech, autism, and has a retained tonic neck reflex. He also wore a cranial band. My husband has trigeminal neuralgia. My main focus of topic has been neurofibromatosis though. Why?
