Sam's 'work-up'

Oh Lordy. We are scheduled for a 'full work-up' on Wednesday, March 7 at Children's Hospital in Denver. Poor Sam. He will have a Renal Ultrasound and a VCUG. This all sounds very traumatic to me but necessary, since he shouldn't have had a UTI at all.

I am feeling guilty over my lack of posts. I wanted to post all about Sam's Feeding Screen (fascinating-he is having a scope done next Tuesday morning to check his cords for damage as well as to see if his tonsils/adenoids are swollen) and about Ted's SID Screen (very interesting too-I think he will be just fine-he didn't seem to have a problem with anything they were doing.) All 3 kids are having 'issues' that make them oh-so-frustrating at times. Actually, Sam is doing well-he is just so sweet and cuddly and has been through so much. Ted is obviously experiencing some sort of emotional stress and I can't figure out what it is. Mae has been tantruming like crazy, but she is being tortured at swimming daily, so there may be a link. All in all, we are all exhausted from dealing with them at the end of the day.

So, I promise I'll be back with more regularity soon. But for now, we are just getting through each day!! Here is a random pic of Mae and Ted having a pretend picnic. I have to say, in spite of all our problems, my kids really do like each other. Thank goodness for that!

It's the small things that we need to hang on to when everything else is crazy! The fact that your children enjoy one another's company is a huge blessing. We can't choose our family when we are young - you just get who you get. So it's a true measure of success when siblings have affection for one another. The teenage years may be a different story but it's right now that counts.

I am so sorry you are going through some frustrating things with all the kids. It sounds like you are on top of it though. Just make it one day at a time sweetie.

So you think you have problems. Many people would love to have your problems if you would take theirs. Don't take them up on the offer.
