Medical Update (And Other Stuff that Crosses My Mind)

Nate's labs turned out great.
We increased his meds 50%.
Now he has to go to the bathroom ALL THE TIME.
I called his teacher today and asked her to get him out of class and to the bathroom no less than hourly and let her know that every 30 minutes would not be too soon.
Nate forgets his morning meds regularly.

Beck saw Dr. Two and got a clean bill of health on his retinas.
Since both girls were affected by age 4 and Beck is not, he will only get checked annually until age 8.  (Nathan was affected by 7.5.)

Beck came shopping with me for skirts.
Dress Barn gave him a coloring book and he sat outside my dressing room and gave me a thumbs up if he liked the outfit, thumbs to the side if he kinda liked it and thumbs down if it was bad.
We agreed surprisingly often and Wendell thinks I'm taking fashion advice from a 4-year-old boy.

Anson broke his finger at basketball practice.
We've put it in a splint and I'm going to beg the doctor to let him practice the piano starting in 2 weeks instead of the 4 weeks the on-call doc recommended.

For Valentines (weekend) Wendell took me to a dinner show with Jon Schmidt in concert.  We bought CD's after and I got to tell him how Annika (5.5) learned to sight-read music with his sight-reading book.  On the real Valentine's, we had dinner with the kids, gave them stuffed animals and little bags of chocolate. Then Wendell and I went to the temple.
Best Valentine's ever.
(PS the temple isn't very busy on Valentines...)

I'm glad that you were able to increase Nate's dose. Hopefully this will help! Good luck and happy Valentine's Day! (I live for the day that I have a baby-sitting child.) :)

Hang in there Keryn. It will happen!

It's great to see such good news for you guys! Sorry about the broken finger, though. I bring Jacob with me clothes shopping because he tells me I look beautiful when I try stuff on.
