Getting there...

Waiting for Dr. McNeal to come in.

How do I get the wrapper off here?

Vaeh is really starting to feel better I think. She even wanted a sucker while waiting at the pedi's office. Her appetite has started to pick back up & she's drinking like a fish again. Today was her last round of this nasty stuff...

She's been getting two shots in each leg every day since Monday. On Sunday, it was two shots TWICE! Her poor little legs look like pin cushions! At least they did mix the drug with lidocaine which I think helped! As of this evening we don't have to have any more shots! When we saw Dr. McNeal today, she switched her to omnicef. Thank heaven!

As I mentioned in my last post, she saw Dr. Butto (her card) on Monday & he said that she'd be having a CTA (CT of the arteries in her chest) followed by her cath/angio. Well, the nurse from his main office called on Tuesday & said they had scheduled her CTA for Dec 9th. Well, I don't think I'll be quite up to an hour & a half drive just 5 days after my surgery, so she rescheduled that for Dec. 17th. Then while we were at the pedi's office today, Jon said they called again. This time was to say they had her cath scheduled for Dec. 8th! What?!?! If I can't make the CTA, I don't think a cath is going to make a difference. Besides the fact that she has to have the CTA before the cath. So, the nurse apologized & said that they would have to schedule the cath for sometime in January. What a crazy winter we're going to have. (We have a wedding in the family in January, too!)

So, Vaeh is close to being back to the normal "Miss V." Hopefully the CTA & cath/angio will go off without a hitch. We didn't discuss the button on Monday, but based on her weight today at the pedi's it shouldn't be an issue - she was 26.6 lbs!! That's my girl! Hope everyone else is well!

Oh my goodness, she looks GREAT! I love the close-up of her pretty face. I'm so glad she is feeling better.

Wow, you guys will most definitely have a busy next couple of months. Medical stuff for two of you, and holidays, and a wedding?! Yikes! By February you'll be ready for a nice long vacation!

Take care and have a good weekend. Stay healthy all of you! xoxox
