So yesterday Mason gets cleared from jaundice and today I get a phone call saying I need to him back for more labs because his thyroid screen came back very slightly abnormal. I know I shouldn't worry since she said its probably nothing and it was only very slightly abnormal, but how can I not? Ugh!!
I am really starting to get overwhelmed here. I feel like I am failing as a mother somehow. I know none of this is in my control, and none of it has amounted to anything yet, but it is so frustrating that all these results keep coming back bad. First with the jaundice, then failing both his hearing tests (retesting next week), and now with his thyroid. I dont even know what it means if his levels are abnormal. No clue what that means his issues could be...I just cant help but feeling like its my fault. Im the mom and Im supposed to make everything perfect for him! Anyways, please think good thoughts for my little boy once again! Thank you ladies!
I know exactly how you feel! With Mackenzie being in the hospital for 2 1/2 weeks after birth i just felt like i couldn't do anything right for her. I couldn't keep my own body under control to keep her baking long enough to be full term. Try not to beat yourself up because you really can't help anything! And be thankful that he's home with you and DH and its nothing too serious! Like i mentioned before, Kenz failed her hearing test too, its totally normal! I'm sure he'll pass with flying colors the next time around! I'll be keeping Mason in my thoughts and prayers but i'm sure he'll be just fine! He's just being a little stinker now... which means for an easier time when he's in the terrible two stage right!? That's what i'm hoping for Kenz!
I know it's hard not to feel this overwhelming responsibility to make his life perfect. Just try to stay positive for him. You are an amazing mom because you care so much! Just remember that your only able to protect him from so much...the rest is just loving him and helping him through the hard times that may come in his life.
I'm so sorry to hear how frustrating these first few weeks have been! Such a tough time just getting adjusted to being a parent, let alone all the issues that have cropped up! Hope things begin to improve dramatically for you guys!
