Trying out my WordPress app tonight so we’ll see how this goes.
Last Friday we took Odette to her first football game. Like with most everything, she liked it and has been asking to go back every night. Reminds me of those first few weeks when we were going to the zoo every 5 days. I didn’t know then that she would make that request of every place she goes. Live and learn I suppose.
Then on Saturday we had the big first birthday party for our friend’s boy, Luca.
I am at my wits end with her belly situation. I just don’t know what to do. Both times she was on her giardia (yucky) medicine her bloat went way down and her poops seemed normal. Then after she is off it for 3-4 days we are back a square one. I am at a total loss. I know it is my job to be her advocate but I’m sick of calling doctor after doctor and trying to convince them that they are wrong. And I know that Jeff is sick, maybe literally, of collecting stool samples. Anyone have advice? Her pediatrician wants to send her to a pediatric GI doc but her international adoption doctor thinks that is unnecessary. The way things seem to improve when she on the medicine leads me to believe that she needs more of it but what do I know? There is a more effective and better tasting drug out there but I guess it is off the market right now. I hate feeling like my hands are tied. I certainly don’t like when people try to tell me how to do my job so I don’t want to treat her doctors that way.
But back to the pictures.
It’s Friday evening. Jeff has a work event so it was me and the kid. I put her in her new Ordinary Hero shirt and we went out for a mommy and me date. Loves those special moments with her!
