The verdicts

I started this entry on Sunday night…sorry for the extended delay!

So this is what we know now:

*Little Lamb does not have celiac nor does she have a wheat allergy

*We will spend the next few weeks first reintroducing milk into her diet and then trying gluten again and seeing what happens

*I don’t know what the plan will be if she returns to the diarrhea once we try gluten again

*I do indeed have an ovarian cyst. According to J, it’s completely benign so long as it doesn’t grow so big it causes my ovary to twist. Sounds fun, huh? I go back to my doc on Tuesday to discuss the MRI and probably the cyst as well.

On another note, Little Bear has been in underwear for a full two weeks now! He still sleeps in a Pull-Up, mostly because he likes them and I still have some-so why not?

There’s a woman on TV making a dish called “African Ground Nut Stew”. Seriously?? That sounds disgusting!!

It is Wednesday now. I saw my doc on Tuesday to review my MRI. It was a very short visit. He wants me to do physical therapy twice a week for 4 weeks. I’m a bit concerned about how I’ll manage the therapy with the kids…

What else??? Little Bear has been limping around on his left leg for three days now. When I can get him to pinpoint the pain, it is in his knee just under the knee cap. Most of the time he is completely unfazed by it, but when he’s been sitting (or sleeping) for a while and gets up, he cries from the pain. I’ll be calling the pediatrician in the morning about that one. It’s quite a mystery to me.

Please keep us, with all our crazy physical ailments, in your prayers. I am diligently trying to take time each day to pray for all of you, my readers. Those I know about, and those I don’t! If you have any specific concerns, please pass them along to me-depechemommy (at) gmail (dot) com if you don’t want to leave it in the comments.

  1. I hope things improve soon. Congratulations on the potty training success.

  2. That stew sounds horrible! We are praying for you all and we are here (well, a 3 hour drive)… if you need us!!! Wish I was closer so that I could watch the kids for you while you went to PT.

    Congrats Little Bear!!!

  3. Oh, going to PT with 3 kids sounds like quite the challenge. Do you have a trusted babysitter? I’ll be curious to see what happens when you reintroduce gluten to LL’s diet. I always think that mother’s instincts are hardly ever wrong. Keep us posted and hope the potty training success continues!

  4. Oh, I do hope things get better really soon. Keep us updated on the PT and reintroducing the gluten. Sounds like you have your hands full. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. Well, praise God, everything is less serious than your worries. I have been praying for your family’s health, and housing situation! -MB
