The doctor!

I thought I would send an update (and a prayer request) while I am waiting on my pics to download......which takes forever these days with this DSLR and its monster files.

So, we had Sam's 2 year and Spence's 4 month well check today.

Spencer is a growing boy! He is 17 lbs, 27" long. He is off the charts in height which didn't surprise me because people have been telling me for quite some time now that he is long! I don't know that kind of stuff.....he's my kid so he just seems normal to me!

Everything was good with Sam but we did have some issues that needed to be addressed. I am sure that most of you are aware of her "problems". All of this GI stuff has been going on for so long and we were ready for some answers.

To get answers you have to get blood. He needed to run quite a few tests just to make sure he covered all the bases. More tests= more blood. This was a problem. They dug around on both arms trying to draw blood and came up virtually empty. It was AWFUL! I felt HORRIBLE! Now, we have to go downtown to the Cook's lab and let them try. She apparently has teensy weensy veins in addition to them being rolley polley! It is heartbreaking and sooo hard for a Mama to watch.

She also has an ultrasound on Thursday so just pray that all goes well and that all of this will turn up something to give us some answers. She is a trooper! She was really AMAZING today even in the midst of all that. (Oh ya, and they had to give her 2 injections after all that other mess)!

Anyway, just wanted to update you. I know many of you have been asking how all of that is going with her so I will keep you informed. Thank you for all of your prayers!
