Here it comes, May 2018’s Mama’s Mission of the Month. Sorry about the delay, but I may have fallen asleep before the prime time line up on the networks made it to their first commercial break. Then, I woke up soaked in sweat. Apparently, the kids felt the need to crawl in bed with mom, and each sleep on half of her. Last time I checked, they have each other in loose choke-holds; silly little cuddle monsters.
If this is your first time reading a Mama’s Mission, you can find out all the details about it here. Otherwise, without any further to do, here is May’s edition.

* I’m a member of Boho Berry, so I get free downloads of all manner of printables on the Boho Berry Tribe Free Resource Library. I printed out the May Monthly Tracker and use it in addition to the monthly tracker in my Academia. Feel free to check out Boho Berry here.
** An ablation is basically getting your uterus cauterized. I’m on blood thinners, and have yet to reach even a hint of menopause, so I have some monthly bleeding issues on a horror movie/crime scene level. I can’t do hormone replacement on account of the Factor V Leiden, so a hysterectomy is out, as is anything hormonal, leaving me this as my potential out.
*** INR stands for International Normalized Ratio, which is a measure of how a person’s blood clots. Being that I have Factor V Leiden that has reared its vile head twice, I should be on blood thinners for life. “Normal” is 1.1 or lower. For a person on thinners, its 2.0-3.0. I’m currently flirting with the high side… yikes.
