Have you stopped reading my blog because 1. I haven't consistently updated for a while now or 2. It's completely boring around these parts and it seems all I talk about is food? I wouldn't blame you.
I have been struggling for about a week with a nasty thing called gout. I didn't know I had it until Monday when our friend (who is an ER doctor) took one look at my ankle and asked if gout runs in my family. I have new sympathy for the dad! Pretty bad, but not as bad as some of the pictures I googled (YIKES!) It's extremely painful and totally inconvenient because I can't really walk anywhere. And since I am pregnant I am limited on what I can take to treat it (nothing) and manage the pain.
I am, however, so grateful for Ian, family and friends that have been so helpful. My house is sparkling clean and we had a delicious meal last night that neither Ian or I had to cook. Today is probably the best day (hence why I am sitting and blogging), but it's still pretty uncomfortable and I won't be running any marathons soon!
On a fun note, Liam ate a slice of pizza the other night. That is HUGE for him! I wasn't going to make him eat any, but when the delivery guy came to the door you would have thought Santa came for a visit. Liam got really excited and I asked if he wanted some. He jumped up and down and screamed "YES"! It was supreme even. I am hoping this is a good change in his taste buds an we are on a uphill climb!
