Happy 200th Post!
So we got the results of Dasha's blood and stool samples today. She tested negative for all things yucky in the stool sample, but they want us to do 2 more samples for parasites on different days because I guess parasites can be tricky that way. We will do those through our pediatrician.
Her blood word came back and all is well except she is Vitamin D deficient, no surprise, Calcium Deficient, again no surprise, and Iron Deficient, little surprise there. So now she is on Vitamin D supplements, she takes 1 Tums a day for calcium, and an iron supplement twice a day until the end of March. Then we get to go draw her blood again to see if that helped any. Maybe that explains why she is so restless at night, she tosses and turns and moves from one end of the bed to the other all night long. She won't stay covered up either. Randy makes fun of me for what I dress her in at night to keep her warm. We keep our house pretty cold anyways, but at night it goes down to 60, so I got her in the skin tight fall/spring PJ's and then I put a pair of footie PJ's on over the top of that. But hey, she is warm in the mornings when I get her up!
We go to our Pediatrician on Friday to start immunizations, and to get a referral so that we can go get an ultrasound of her remaining kidney. We are going to go to Children's Mercy for that. Hopefully I can get that scheduled on a day that Randy has off, and Camden has school. What do you think the chances of that are!?!
Thanks everyone who commented on my last post, I just had a horrible day was feeling sorry for myself. I always told myself that since Camden was so easy as a baby/toddler that my next kid was going to be a lot tougher, well I was right. :-)
