It dropped

All week I've had a sinking feeling in my stomach. Like I'm ready to be caught in a lie. Have I lied? No. Am I worried about something? Not more than normal. Nothing specific. I just feel like I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Well, I think it dropped.

We had a blood draw for Jesse at his one year appointment. Then we got a letter from the state saying Jesse had lead in his blood and that we should have him retested. When we went for his 15 month check up our doctor gave us the paperwork to have his blood drawn again. She said just have it done before he comes back for his 18 month check up, there was no hurry. I changed his/our diet a little bit to be rich in the foods that help eliminate lead from your body. We've done some other things too to help. We're on the right track.

Then yesterday we got a call from the State Department of Health (or someone of that nature) regarding Jesse's lead levels. So I called her back. Oh, I wish I had never had him tested. It could be a very long road for us. I just want to cry, but I'm the mom and I have to fix this. But I don't know if I can.

So right now, just pray for me and the situation. I'm looking into some things to make sure we are not being bullied-which I think we might be.

Darn government sticking it's nose where it doesn't belong. We will pray this all turns out well. If you need help, let us know, we'll do what we can.
