So I know it has been a while since I last wrote. I sometimes forget to write about things, or my life is just so boring that i have nothing new to say.
Well the past two days have not been too boring so I thought I would write. I received information back from my doctors office that I do NOT have gestational diabetes!!! YEAH!!! I did have it with Kambria and it was NOT fun to have to regulate your diet as much as I did. So i have been paranoid that I would have it again and even told my doctor to just assume that I would have it. Well I took the test on Friday and they said to call the doctors on Monday to find out the results. Well they were that I had a level of 104 and they do not worry unless it is at a level of 135!!! I started to ask questions and my doctor said, do not ask unless you want to have the 3 hour test! So I stopped asking questions. So i am MORE than thrilled that I do not have gestational diabetes,..although they did say they would test me again on my next doctors appointment in June. (since I am on "vacation" in Chicago)
On another note, Kambria went and had her eyes checked and "fixed" today. We went to the children's eye physician and they did a dye test in her eyes. It was basically an eye drop that you could see in blue light if it made her eyes turn a fluorescent yellow or not. Well her eyes did not drain and so they went ahead with the procedure of putting a metal tube down her tear ducts and hopefully removing whatever blockage there was...however the doctor did say that it just felt tight and that she might have to have tear duct tubes put in her eyes. But we are to watch her for a couple of weeks and see how it goes. So for today she has some bloody tears and a little bit of a bloody nose which I guess is normal. The poor thing!!!
Btu I do have to say that the doctor was a little reluctant to so the operation since she was getting older and was afraid that she was too big and strong and would get out of the papoose thing they strapped her in. But afterwards (I sat outside rather than watch her cry) they said that she did not even try to get out of the holds. She just cried which is TOTALLY normal for a baby to do. Bryan stayed in the room with her, but I could not stand to see her strapped down. So I came back into the room when they were done.
So that is the excited news from us...We will have to write more once we get into Chicago. We start the trip on Thursday and will spend some time with our good friends Nate and Sarah in Iowa for a couple of days and then finish in Chicago next Monday. So you should ear from us next week!!!
