Da Poop Stinks

Still no word on the poop samples. Most came back negative which is good. The one we are still waiting on is the reduction test. This tells us if he has a hard time tolerating carbs, or proteins, or something else. We sent the sample in but then it got lost in the computer (the order not the sample itself) so I had to deliver a new cup yesterday. We should find out more about it tomorrow at clinic.

Clinic has been tough. It's so early when you have been up all night. I set my alarm and I still end up sleeping through it and waking right when I should be leaving. I've gotten there in time but without makeup or my hair combed. Owell.... Allison doesn't seem to mind.

Everything else here in Denver is going alright. Tomorrow will be TWO weeks since Noah was released from the Hospital. I can't even begin to tell you how happy that makes me. It's SO wonderful having him here. The ONLY thing missing is Shane. But, he's coming out again tomorrow night. Which is good. I miss him SO much. This past two weeks has gone by SO slow. But he gets to stay an extra night and goes home Monday night instead of Sunday. Then my parents are coming for a visit on Thursday night. They only get to stay until Sunday morning but I couldn't be more excited to see them. I miss my family and I miss my friends. While to some degree I have become more comfortable here, it isn't the same. So, I am VERY happy they were able to work it out and come see us.

Some more great news, our cousins the Scadlocks have posted an update on Baby Beckham and he is doing wonderful. I know they would love some encouraging words over at their blog.

One last thing... I recently met a young girl name Crystal here (it gets crazier) who recently had a skin graft because she got Flesh eating bacteria from going to a water park with a sliver in her toe. She almost lost her leg but they were able to save it after cutting out the infection. I felt such a bond to her because she almost lost a limb, I almost lost my foot, we both had skin grafts, we are both blond and about the same age (she's probably about 16 or so) and to top it all off, we have the same name. and mental note to self.... check for open wounds before swimming in a public pool.... gross!

  1. Crystal,

    I am so glad to hear that it has been 2 weeks since Noah was released!! That is awesome. We are hoping to be released some time soon (I have learned from you and I made it clear that I do not want to be released too early!). I am also glad to hear that Noah is nursing. Beckham is now nursing and I am so glad. It is funny that you say that Lilly was a bad at nursing, because Gwen was the same. Weird! It just shows that we are related (even if it is distantly).

    We continually pray for your sweet family. Keep us posted!



Thank you for commenting. I love hearing from you!
