Must Be a Boring Blog

Lindsay says blogs are boring without pictures, so I guess this will be boring. ;)

This weekend the boys ended up spending the night at Julie's house, so I was all by myself! I didn't use the time well though and I cleaned my house extra, extra good. I know I am a big dork! I had been cleaning all day (soccer got canceled)and I still had things to finish up so that's what I did all night.

AJ sprained his ankle pretty bad on his camping trip. It was all swollen and terribly bruised. It's not broken though, so that is good. It looks disgusting though!

Monday Avery had to go to the doctor for his 4 year check up. We went to a new doctor because I could never get in to his other one and I was tired of taking him to the walk-in clinic. I absolutely LOVE this new doctor. She was great. The office is kinda far away, but I think she will definitely be worth it. Anyway, I had some concerns and she really listened and thoroughly checked him out. I talked to her about his rash around his mouth from tomatoes. She put him on different vitamins because she said it might be caused from not enough zinc. Avery has also been feeling sick for quite a while. He constantly tells me that he doesn't feel good. It doesn't matter what he eats, when he eats, etc. He just doesn't feel good. He also has strange poop (TMI, sorry) so I asked her about that. She sent him to get an X-ray of his stomach to be sure there were no blockages, etc. His x-ray came back fine. She said that it could be a silent form of reflux so she put him on Pepcid AC. He has never had any reflux problems, even as a baby, so we will see if this works. Maybe so. She wants him to come back in 2 weeks to see if he is doing better. She said she hopes it is reflux because from what I described it sounds like he could have Celiac Disease, which is where your body can't process Gluten correctly. Gluten is in wheat, rye, and barley, so pretty much everything! The only way to help it is to have a gluten free diet which would be no good. So we hope, hope, hope that it is reflux! Anyway, besides that he is doing great. He is still a little runt, only in the 15th percent for weight and 10% for height. All that matters is that he thinks he is big! ;)

Today I went to sing at the State Capitol. We were asked to sing for Women's Crime Victims Week. There were several Senators, Supreme Court Judges, etc there. It was a little bit crazy, but we pulled it off and already have interest from 2 big wigs to do some events for them. Yea! Not bad for 20 mins. of work. :)

Tomorrow Sam gets to spend most of the day at the doctor. He has his CT scan and then we have to go back to the ENT. So, I will post more tomorrow about that. He told me last night that he blows and blows and that there is this big, gross stuff on the right side that he just can't get out. Poor kid. Hopefully we can get him fixed.

I suppose that is it for now. Bye Bye!
