My doctor was pretty positive that the ultrasound (of my leg's veins/artery) would end up with a 'positive' result, so that was scary in itself. BUT when he told me that icing it like I did Saturday and Sunday was worse for it, AND that I tried to stay off of my leg/foot all morning yesterday until my appointment, was bad, too, HE was REALLY worried! Seriously, I don't think I was ever more scared of dying. Facing death really makes you think about getting things 'in order', let me tell you. Anyhoo, I am fine, my xray also showed NO abnormalities, too, so I just need to 'be nice' to my foot/ankle/leg for a bit. Must be all that Turbo Jam! HA!
On the other hand, though, my doctor did call today to tell me that he wants to send Eli (my 1st grader) to Riley's in Indy. Eli was the reason we went to the doctor yesterday in the first place. His allergies had been acting up and I wasn't really sure that it was JUST allergies, so we went and he ended up having bronchitis, sinus infection, allergies and walking pneumonia! He's better today, already, so he will be okay. BUT, apparently Eli showed slight to no growth over the past year, so he wants to rule out a hormone deficiency or whatever. So, we will go for that sooner or later, when they call me with the appointment. So, if you feel like praying, put Eli on your list that he grows some or his hormones kick in a bit more! HA!
I honestly am not that worried; my Josh (19 yr old) had to go to Riley at age 5 and he was put on hormones and nothing happened, which meant he had no deficiency, and he's now taller than me, but still skinny as a rail; but his paternal grandparents were shorter than me, and there aren't any giants in my family. I JUST HAVE SMALL KIDS! Shoot, KayLee (my kindergartner) is FINALLY getting out of some 4T clothes, but not all; and my Isaac (just turned 4) still wears 2T clothes sometimes! But, I guess it is best to rule those bad things out, right?
That wasn't such a "QUICKIE" post, was it? I am going to be busy wrapping up Mother's Day orders over the next couple days, so the blog will be hit or miss for me. I can't wait until JUNE when all this craziness dies down! Just one month to go!
Have a SUPER WEEK!
