Bittersweet

  1. So I have bittersweet news today. I finally got a letter of acceptance for an LPN program for Jan 2008....Jan 2008, oh wait, did I tell you Jan 2008, which means I will be having to put off something so much more than a career for yet another year and a half....another child. My husband and I want another so bad and I will have to wait yet another year and a half to continue my family. Because as soon as I have the little one, I know our family will be complete and we as a couple can move on as well. Maybe this is babble but I'm frustrated as hell. I'm still applying, I'm still taking classes to bring up my GPA however, I'm just getting so frustrated.

    Jan. 2008.....that seems so far away....but time goes so quickly, in a few years when you are done with school and maybe a new mom you might wonder why you ever worried. I can see why you are frustrated but congratulations on being accepted. I have finally applied to NS and am waiting on my acceptance letter but I may have to put it on the back-burner too. My 20 month old son was diagnosed with diabetes last thursday. I was planning on putting him in day care (for the first time ever)when I begin clinicals and now I don't know if I will feel comfortable with that, or even if there are day care centers in my area qualified to care for him. I may have to put off finishing school until he goes to school himself. I don't want to but my first priority is my little man....I know he'll be off to school in the blink of an eye. Good luck on your path...I hope it all works out for you!!!

    Hey if your little monkey has diabetes,....look into insulin pump options, your quality of life will increase and you worries will subside.

    Yeah, we have an appt. next week with his endorcrinologist and a pump educator. My husband is also a pumper. I am sure it will help but I still don't know about daycare. I am going to look into it and see what they offer.
    Thanks!
