#1: Isaac turned 3. As in three years ago he was a teeny tiny newborn. Who looked like this:
Now? He's such a ham I can barely get a picture of him. But, he looks like this for a professional photographer:
#2. O will be having her MRI done this Sunday afternoon to check her pituitary gland. From there, we'll come up with a treatment plan for her growth hormone deficiency. We'll also start keeping an eye on Isaac's height. Anything under 10% will start getting some attention. (He's still young, so he can still catch up.) We've talked with her about how she'll have to sit still for 30 minutes in the loud machine. I'm hoping they have fancy goggles with a tv in them like they do at our children's hospital in HSV.
#3 We thought we were having a travel free Christmas. Until we found out my grandpa, who lives in N.C., isn't doing so hot. He's lost a lot of weight and just isn't real thrilled to be living. The last time we saw him, I was 4 weeks pregnant with A. So, 7 years ago. My parents and my uncle and aunt and their two kids will be going as well. We figured we should go when other people are going. it isn't very fun there (he's in an assisted living home) and there isn't much to do. Not time like the present, right?
#4 We're having some behavior problems with one of our kids. We're really struggling with how to discipline. It feels like nothing is working. *sigh* I keep trying to tell E that I think its from a lot of the attention on O's health the last year, since this is when the unwanted behaviors started. I don't know. I'm this close [___] to taking the child to the therapist to see if they could get to the bottom of it all. I don't know how to help and it's really a crappy feeling.
#5 I've had a cough for almost two weeks. No other real symptoms. just a stupid, dumb, keeps-me-up-at-night cough. I hate to call the doctor for just a cough, but yet my cough syrup box says if you have a cough for more than 7 days to call your doctor.
#6. Eliza- she's a handful. This is not new news. But, it pretty much sums her up.
