Stinker Dink


After winning against her mama and sister in a game of Uno, she quickly jumped up and down and proceeded to react like she was hot schtuff. Her daddy asked her if she was gloating, and she proudly and happily shook her head up and down. "No one has ever said you were less than honest, Emma!" proclaimed her father. Honesty...something we try so hard to instill in our children. But Emma...well, she is honest to a fault, it seems.
While getting ready for church yesterday morning, I heard a screech from the girls' bathroom...

Abby: OWWWW, that's hot! EMMA! Why did you flush the toilet?
Emma: Because I wanted you to get out of the shower.
I shudder to think what it will be like in 10 years...
The little guy is pretty puny tonight. He started with a fever and some vomiting yesterday afternoon, and he has kept his fever for a good portion of the day today as well. I have no idea what is wrong with him. His stomach is definitely slower, as we have seen an increase in reflux and decrease in eating. GI bug? Just a fever virus? We dunno. He responds this exact same way every single time he gets sick...stomach slow down, fever, throw up. Zofran has been incredible to keep his retching and vomiting at bay, but he keep complaining of his head, stomach and legs hurting...
The little dude is also a bit anemic again. We suspected this ever since we were coming home from Houston, and his lab work last week showed that he was indeed a little anemic and his iron stores were low once again. Hopefully adding one of his meds back in will help him with this. We also got word that a few of his lab values were off when we were in Houston...some that are usually off, but we do have a couple that are new. We will retest and figure the game plan to these new issues over the next month...always something. Always something.
