..away from surgery. I can hardly believe it.
Seems like its been forever since the initial creation of Alexis' ostomy, but in reality we just passed the 2 month mark. I am thankful for all of the progress we have made, all the medications we were able to give up and for my daughters health back. My only wish is to fast forward through these next few months and these next 2 surgeries.
Alexis' GI appointment went great. Dr Boyle was thrilled with how well she looked and ordered some routine labs to see how her body was maintaining. I explained the problem I discussed in my last post and he wasn't too concerned. He doesn't want to treat it with any type of medication and we will see how it goes after her next surgery. I was pretty happy about that!
Alexis finally got over a pretty rough cough/cold/sore throat viral type sickness (seriously, it seemed like everything rolled into one!) this past week. Her output turned very watery and I was pretty nervous about her becoming dehydrated since everything seemed to pass through her so quickly (more so at school since I couldn't monitor her) but we made it through with no problems whatsoever!
Since my last post, Alexis enjoyed her first trip to the Renaissance Festival! She rode rides, enjoyed various attractions and had the energy to walk the entire time! We did have to make several trips to the restroom, but they were for me :) It was great! (check out the few photos I attached!)
The same day we went to the festival, we found out Alexis will be expecting ANOTHER sister! Three girls... hopefully I can keep my sanity ;)
One last thing: we will be signing Alexis up for Drill Team this week! How awesome is that?! She is so excited!! Practice starts in a week or so, I will keep you guys updated on how she does.
Thanks for checking in!
