Seven Quick Takes

Ken's parents arrived safely on Wednesday.  It is so nice to have a few extra hands around the house!

The St. Patrick's Day Party last weekend went really well.  We had a small crowd and are enjoying the leftovers.

Camille seems to be constantly in trouble lately.  I'm not sure if she's really in more trouble or if I'm just being impatient with her antics.

Meghan has had her blood drawn 3 times in the last week.  Every person that has tried has had to stick her at least twice.  Today was the last straw for me.  I gave them 2 chances and after they didn't get any blood, I told them I would do it myself.  (I promise I was polite.)  Fortunately I was able to draw ample blood for all of the tests she needed, including one that has been re-ordered 3 times due to insufficient amounts of blood.  The nurses said they could never poke their own child with a needle.  For me it was more painful to hold her and listen to her scream as people kept missing than to just do it.  I am a little bit traumatized after-the-fact, but luckily Meghan has forgotten about it and still loves her mommy.

So far Meghan's blood tests have come back slightly abnormal and are somewhat pointing in the direction of a kidney disorder.  We still don't know for sure and probably won't for at least a week longer.

Meghan still has fluid in both of her ears and isn't sleeping.  She is going to the Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor next week.  I am hopeful they will be able to squeeze her into their schedule to put in tubes before we leave.

Pray for my friend Lorrie.  She is a week overdue and hopefully having her baby in the next 24 hours!
