Finally, it is April!

The month of March has been a crazy one. It will full of doctor appointments, an x-ray, blood work and an ER visit. For those that don't know and care Bridgette had 3 weeks of loose stools. We started at our pediatrician and then were referred to a GI dr. We did an x-ray and blood work to hopefully find an answer. X-ray came back normal and blood work showed that B has a low blood count and her celiac count was low. Dr. is not sure what is causing all of this, could be a food allergy or celiac disease. B is back on a dairy free diet and is drinking a special formula. We are still in the waiting process and will probably be referred to a Food Allergist. I'm tired just thinking about it!

Last Tuesday B feel at daycare and spilt her lip open. Patrick came to the rescue and took her to the ER. After a 5 hour wait because they thought they were going to sedate her one of the doctors felt up to the challenge of doing it while she was awake. When I arrived they were stitching her up. She was not happy but they were almost done. 2 stitches later and we were on our way home. About an hour and a half passed and I notice that her lip seemed to be open again. Patrick looked at it agreed. This time I packed a bag of toys, diapers, cell phone charger, etc. After another 5 hour wait B finally fell asleep. 10 minutes after she fell asleep the dr was ready to stitch her up. B slept through the whole thing! 11:30 came and we finally had 2 more stitches and we went home to sleep. Patrick and I NEVER want to have to go through that ever again!

We ended our week with a play date with Caleb at the mall and the church's Easter egg hunt. B had a blast! I cannot believe how much B has grown and changed in 1 month. She loved waving at the Easter bunny but didn't like sitting in his lap. She wasn't sure what to do at the egg hunt but she eventually figured it out. She loved opening the eggs more than she did finding them.
