First of all welcome home us, we got back on Wednesday night from Casper. We flew into Billing, MT and then drove to Casper and then the other way to come home. It was a very fun trip with lots of rain. I sure enjoyed being there. We went to see Jacob who had recently returned from his mission in Bolivia. It was fun to see him and be around him, he is great comapny. We played lots of Settlers of Catan, shopped and we got to celebrate Milas' 26th Birthday while we were there, I think he had a nice birthday, he didn't have to work and we got to hang out and go to lunch just the two of us. I think I gave him the best present of all....a toothbrush. :)
We got home and there was no wasting time. Thursday, Lydia had another appointment with the Gastroentologist. She had not gained any weight she actually was 5 oz lighter. So he said that he was going to do some blood work, so I took her downstairs to get some blood work, thinking it was going to be a prick of the finger or maybe in the arm with maybe one little vile. Boy was I wrong. I didn't have a moment to count, but I am not exaggerating when I say there were probably 10 viles of Lydia's blood when we were done, a whole lot of Lydia tears and sweat and A little sweat of my own. Holy cow, that was not something I want to do ever again, I saw how strong Lydia really was yesterday. I was laying on her and holding her shoulder trying to keep her still and another nurse was holding her arm, while another nurse pricked her and drew the blood. I felt so bad for her. So now we just wait and see if there really is something wrong with her, or if she just might be little. I am hopeful that everything will be OK, but I guess it is good to check and make sure.
Milas had gotten a cold last week before we left for Casper and He decided to give it Lydia, she lost her voice and has been coughing. We had a doc. appointment this morning for Liza's 4 month and Lydia's follow-up. Since we were there I had him check Lydia's ears just in case and sure enough after digging out a ton of ear wax, he found that she had an ear infection. Poor girl She really is hating doctors offices. She instantly cries when we put her on the table. I would too if someone was drawing my blood and digging wax out of my ear in less than 24 hours. So we get to go back for Lydia in 2 weeks to check her ears again. I love going to the Doctor.
Liza got her 4 month shots today too to top it of. She is handling it well though so we are OK there. Lucky for us Liza is a good baby, that loves the saucer that we pulled out of Lydia's closet.
