I heard from our doctor and she said that the reflux has improved from a level 4 to a level 2. This may mean antibiotics for another year, but it might also mean no surgery. We won't know for sure until the 17th, but this is good news.
I really don't mind children's music. It is kind of fun to listen to and sing along with. And I love to see Owen get excited about it. However, the after-effects of children's music can drive you crazy. Like last week, when I had the Thomas the Tank Engine theme stuck in my head for days. And right now, I keep humming the songs from the Sesame Street Silly Songs DVD that I've had playing in the van. I keep switching the songs in my head from, "The Honker-Duckie-Dinger Jamboree" to "Mary had a bicycle" and "Put Down the Duckie." Argh!
Well, tomorrow we have Owen's follow up test about his kidneys. We had the test done a year ago and they determined that he had kidney reflux. We have been giving him a daily dose of antibiotics to prevent him from getting a kidney or urinary tract infection. Tomorrow we find out if he has grown out of it or not. So, cross your fingers!!!
My new love. (I know I'm a dork!)
We got our new washer and dryer yesterday. We ended up getting the Kenmore Elite HE5. I have been doing laundry ever since. And I am so impressed. The diapers were the biggest test and I was amazed at how clean they got. Using the old washer I had to do a cold rinse on the diapers first, a hot wash with detergent, another hot wash with detergent and an extra rinse to get out all the soap.
Anyway, to wash the diapers in the new washer, I put in two small squirts of the detergent into the drawer. Then, I can set it to go through a cycle that I customized that involves an autosoak for 30 minutes, a super high temp hot wash, an extra rinse cycle, and an extra spin. It takes forever, but I just have to push a button and let it go. So, here is a picture of the old washer/dryer and then a picture of the new ones.
Note to self: pay more attention to Owen when carrying him in the sling and wearing a v-neck shirt.
Note to Owen: just because you like my breasts, it doesn't mean that everyone at Publix wants to see them.
I hate being sick. And I hate pollen.
Owen has been sick for a week now. Austin has been sick for almost a week. And I've only been sick since Thursday. Maybe at least the boys are nearing the end of their colds. And I don't think the pollen helps much. I think the count is up around 2,000 or so. Ugh. Achoo!
