He is a great kid, good eater, loves a bath and still takes his nap. Preston now, again finally, started sleeping later. When Nana was here it was 5 or 6 AM! He has, thankfully, gone back to his 830 or 9AM rise time. On the weekends I know how tough it is to get up so early when you don't have to, no Nana to entertain him & start breakfast.
7 more work days and honestly I only see the kids 2 more times with their specials schedule so, my year is basically over. Rob is going to come in and help me clean my room. I can't do it all by myself this year, no way. It would take me 3 weeks. Gotta love my hubby, to take his day off to help his wife to clean. I quote Salt n' Pepa "whatta man, whatta man, whatta man whatta mighty good man. Now say it again now!"

|Bed Head at it's finest|
This kid wakes up with a "flock of seagulls" hairdo practically every morning. The past month and some odd days I have been home it's been one of the highlights of my morning to see what his hair decides to create.
I missed the hair today it was my first official day back to work. The doctor gave me a pass back into the "real world" and I am currently doing half time back at "the Weed". It was surreal returning, seeing the kids smiling faces and sighs of relief that I was back. Many of the teachers and staff welcomed me with open arms. It will be strange to leave early every day and see only certain students but it's better than nothing and I am glad to be back in action.
Baby Naylor II is doing very well. A strong heartbeat, weight good, all vitals looking and functioning properly. Yes, we found out if Preston will have a little sister or brother too, which is so thrilling! Preston will be so happy to have brother to play with, eventually. Right now his best friend is a 10 year old beagle who tries to avoid him half the time. He needs a little friend. We are name hunting as well so if you have some favorites throw them our way...we need all the help we can get.
|Guess what honey?|
22 days of work left...but who's counting?

|A midst the green|
Sitting up and talking to people is about the extent of my daily routine. I make attempts to take 2-3 mini naps a day that make a world of difference to me. I have been out to do the most minor of things. I sat and watched Preston get his hair cut, in addition to me getting in a chair at a salon for 40 minutes. I even went out to sit at dinner at one of our close eateries. Sitting is my thing. When I overdo it, my heart races and I am lying down for a couple hours until I feel better.
I have moved my pregnancy care to a high risk doctor that has dealt with and seen cases such as mine. I am confident that being in her hands I will be able to handle any complications that may occur. I also have an endocrinologist that is working with me and adjusting my levels of Methamizole, the drug to help lower my thyroid numbers.

Baby Naylor II looks absolutely adorable on its last ultrasound. Good growth, length and heart rate. We even saw some hand waving towards the end. Cute, even in the womb! Next appointment will be another ultrasound that will reveal the gender, Daddy will be joining me for that one. Should we tell anyone?? Hmm, that is yet to be determined.

Preston plays with a Mickey app on my phone. He can takes pictures like this, with my help. Those curious, fun loving eyes that capture my heart in it's entirety. Finally a student's writing assignment that led to my post on facebook. I even get through to the ones that don't like art. yes! All positive all happy thoughts huh?
Now for my yang. My Obgyn bloodwork came back with issues, thyroid issues, I started getting fast heart rate, dizziness and disorientation last Thursday while out of work trying to recover from what I thought was nausea, fatigue and the final stages of recovery from Bronchitis. My doctor called back Friday, the day before, said I had hyperthyroidism. What is it? You got my guess and by Saturday my body was saying " woo, slow down, stop and get help". I listened and spent 5 hours in the ER. After bloodwork, ultrasound on my thyroid, high blood pressure, 98 sitting heart rate and IV fluids/medication I knew this wasn't going to be an easy road.
Since then I have had an appointment with an Endocronologist who took more blood, confirmed hyperthyroid diagnosis and believes that I have Graves Disease. Probably got it sometime after the birth of Preston and symptoms heightened with this 2nd pregnancy. I am waiting for results, I have an appointment with a new High Risk doctor in 2 weeks and I am on drugs to help my situations.
Working has been unbearable, I still throw up at least once a day if not twice. I have hand tremors that make me shake and barely able to sharpen pencils, I feel so dizzy and light headed, my heart rate goes up when I am walking to the bathroom and I have to stop 3 times or more. The one thing that has helped tremendously is the kind, thoughtful words and actions from the people I work with. I really don't know what I would have done without them during this time because it's been really hard.
Spring Break is here and I am hoping for big change coming my way with my health. You don't realize how lucky you are to have your health everyday until you lose it. I haven healthy as a horse for years and it's all different now.
Now my head is throbbing from staring at the screen after about a half hour I start seeing double.
