Here are some updates on recent blog posts...
1) To bang, or not to bang...
Well, initially I had decided "not to bang" and to grow The Princesses bangs out. She had a different idea. I always put her hair up out of her face when she goes to daycare.
This last week she started pulling out her hair thing and the teachers could not find it. So that resulted in her having her hair look like CRAZY the rest of the day.
After picking her up Friday with CRAZY hair, I decided we just HAD to get the bangs cut. And I decided to get all of her hair cut so it would look more even and "finished". Enjoy the pics below from her cut experience and the resulting cuteness when we were done.
2) The Diabetes MeMe for kids
First, we know no one named Karen. So I am not sure how she is his best friend. That CRACKED ME UP.
Second, we don't eat cookies all the time. I don't even know where that one came from. This is a RARE thing in our house.
Third, I want to be 5 when I grow up too!
3) Update on the Ears for The Princess
Ears seem to be healing great. The GI doc happened to look in there while we visited her and she said they looked good. We go back the the ENT on the 1st of November for a check up. I will update after that appointment. Thank you all for the prayers for healthy ears.
4) 5 Years Ago/ Trip to Vegas
Thank you all for the well wishes on our 5 year anniversary. It is so surreal to know we have been married for 5 years. It seems like yesterday! We had an interesting time in Vegas. A post will be coming when I can find the time. We enjoyed casino hopping and playing the penny slots. I know, I know, we are BIG spenders. :-)
5) Endoscopy has been scheduled
And has now been re-scheduled, and MOVED UP. The Princess was/is getting more and more miserable since re-starting gluten just over 1 week ago. She has had to re-start her acid reflux meds and is NOT sleeping well, worse than before. I called on Thursday and BEGGED for them to move her up to a sooner date. I guess I sounded pathetic enough on the phone because the doc is getting her in THIS Tuesday the 19th.
She is scheduled for a 1pm endoscopy. I will arrive with her there around 11am. My parents will be out of town, so I am VERY THANKFUL for Wendy right now. She has offered to keep The Superhero for the day while I take care of The Princess and her biopsy. Rod could take off work, but since he is still in training at the new job, I did not want him to have to take time off for this.
So, we will have answers SOON. I will most likely just put The Princess back on the GF diet after her endoscopy while we wait for the results. I feel it really did help her feel better and I think we will end up there anyway. A friend of mine shared her friend's blog link, and through there I found a link with more info on EE.
EE is something the GI doc will be biopsying for through this Endoscopy. And The Princess has EVERY symptom on the list. So, even if celiac is negative (which was my first thought with all of this), I still feel there is SOMETHING going on with her and wheat. I have always noticed something and am really hoping for answers now.
I will update after Tuesday to let you all know how everything went. I am not sure how long before we get the official results, I am hoping to know before the weekend. We will see.
