Brief Update

Not spending much time on the laptop this weekend.
We enjoyed a quiet morning at home Saturday. I met a friend for breakfast- a much needed time of connection and catching up. Then just laid low with the family for a while.
Jeff's sister's kids (Jillian and Corbin) turned 9 and we headed to their house for cake and ice cream- had a great time.
Brian and Christy came over for dinner and a game night. Ended up playing the game jeff got me for Christmas- Quelf. Much laughter, crazy laughter, out of control laughter- and exactly what I needed. Good food and great wine didn't hurt, either!
Zach has passed a small amount of blood at each diaper change. The rash is significantly improved. He takes his antibiotic like a champ and doesn't mind the cream. He is eating, sleeping, playing, drinking, and charming like normal.
Today's challenge... getting a urine sample. I had hoped CVS had something we could collect in- something designed for this task. No luck. We'll try Target tomorrow but... then we are on our own. And first morning pee might be easiest to catch, I dunno. Wish us luck!

Oh, I'm so glad you posted an update. I was thinking about you guys. When Charlie was little (still in a diaper), we needed a urine sample. Our peds office had a bag w/a sticky top that we were able to put on him. Wonder where you might get one?

Good luck on catching pee. Ya know, I don't know that I've ever thought I'd say those words together in a sentence.

Sorry that Zach is sick! It's so hard when you don't know what is wrong. Hope the pee catch goes well! Glad you had a night of good food, good laughter and good wine!

Glad he's improving! Can't help with the pee catch thing. There are only girl babies in my family!! I don't know nuthin' about raisin' no boy babies!

Any value in trying to make it a game?? Sort of a hit the target kind of thing???
