I realize this has become the obsess about Sadie’s weight blog. But I will say that it’s refreshing to obsess about someone else’s weight for a change. Today is the day I will find out if Sadie gained weight in the past two weeks and if so, if it’s enough weight to warrant any optimism that she won’t be the World’s Smallest Human when she grows up. Obviously if she is the World’s Smallest Human I will exploit her and turn her into a money making circus act. And not that ghetto Ringling Brother’s but Circe Du Soleil – in VEGAS dammit.
Even with all the support I get from you readers out there in bloggyland, it is sometimes a pretty lonely feeling to feel nothing but worry about your child with an issue you cannot control. And every once in awhile, you find a kindred spirit who is going through something painfully similar and it’s like a little weight has been lifted (or added in this context). Heather came along as a commenter on my blog and soon we began to email back and forth where we discovered we both had babies the same size who weren’t growing. Now Heather’s story is much more dramatic than mine, and my heart immediately went out to her when I read her story in depth on her blog. And truth be told, I can’t believe that out of the two of us, I’m the one snorting Zoloft, topping it off with a Xanax and washing it all down with a Red Hook Ale while she’s back at work!
She is either a very strong woman or it all hasn’t quite hit her yet. You’ll decide. But in any case, I got to meet Heather in person this weekend and she’s ridiculously cool, her baby is ridiculously small like Sadie (and like Sadie, the docs can’t quite figure out why) and we are in a mad competition to see who can fatten their baby up the fastest – but willing to cry on each other’s shoulders if there are setbacks – because that’s how true girlfriends kick it. So go check out her blog (which bonus, is funny!), then check back here around 5 or so PST for my lastest weight update.
Think good thoughts for both of us!
