We are back again...

From where you may ask? From the Doctor! It has become our second home between Maddie and Mommy these days. Again though, it was for Maddie. Poor girl! This is the 3rd time in 2 weeks that she has been down and out with a fever, a high fever too. She woke up Saturday with it and it lasted through last night, or this morning, around 4 am. She has had a break for a few hours from fever and it is now back (now that we are back from the Dr., of course). So, what is the verdict??? Well, let me say, 1 1/2 weeks ago they did a strep and flu test, both negative. They did a CBC prick to check some levels in her blood, saying that her bacterial levels were higher and her white blood cell count was on the higher end of normal but they couldn't do anything because they didn't know what she had...ARG-that's why we were there! Keep an eye on her and if she has a fever by Friday bring her in for blood work. Of course, and thankfully she didn't. Now, 1 1/2 weeks later it's back! Well, she does now have strep and something is "off" in her urine sample. She had blood, protein and white blood cells in it but no bacteria so it is off to be cultured and then us taking another sample in, in about another week. I am thankful that we aren't just going crazy and that something showed up because she has been miserable and we have too having to watch her go through it all. She is a tough cookie but this is NO fun! I kind of wish they would have gone ahead and done some blood work because I just feel like they need too-why? I don't know, maybe it would just calm my uneased nerves. We are thankful our children our healthy and we don't have bigger issues to worry about-we just hope our our little "sweet pea" or Maddie Moo gets to feeling better quickly! We love you sweetie!

I hope Maddie starts feeling better! I really hope they can find something wrong -- that sounds bad -- but so that they can figure out how to make it better!

We are so good! Evan just applied to Dental School so hopefully we will be moving to where ever he gets accepted in the spring or summer. We did have tons of fun at Disney World, it was good to see Kelie's girls having so much fun with the characters there :)

I did cut my hair, but nothing short. I just have it really long with layers. It is even longer than in that picture now-- I'll probably chop it off soon!! How have you guys been!? Still living in Virginia? (one of the schools we applied to is in VA!!)

Poor little girl! As a mother, it is HORRIBLE having a child who doesn't feel well :( It makes me so sad! I'll be watching your blog to see how everything turns out. Give her a hug for me!
