Bitter with the Sweet

It has been a rough couple of days. Grace is sick AGAIN! It turns out she has the croup plus an ear infection and then today we went back because she wasn't getting any better. She was fussy all afternoon and screamed...Yes, screamed, not cried, for over an hour before bed last night and was fussy again this morning. It turns out that on top of the other two things, she also has strep. This has been like the 4th time she's had it. But it gets better...Tuesday afternoon the developmental pediatrician calls to tell me Grace's lab work came back with an issue...something in her chromosomes. So, I kind of let it go because she was a little concerned about Grace's thyroid level and my pediatrician said it wasn't a big deal. So, I was good until 4 pm on Tuesday when Grace's pediatrician, the fantastic Dr. Oliver called (she did, not her nurse) and she was pretty serious. So, to make a long story short, we now have to have more tests on body systems as well as see a Genecticist. How fun is that? How much more can my baby take? We're going to the eye doctor tomorrow and Grace may be getting glasses. It has just been one of those weeks. I am trying hard to keep it together.

I've been watching your blog, and wanted to send encouragement also. My daughter was a waiting child, and there are many unknowns. I know it's difficult to be a single parent managing all of this, but you'll get through it. Keep your chin up!
