Drawing Blood

Today I took S to get blood drawn to check on her "tumor marker" -whatever that is.

The doctor wants to start at the beginning, as in all the follow up care that should have happened right after the surgery to remove her tumor. Yes, she is 2 1/2 years old and we are starting tests that should have been done when she was 2 months old. I have pushed a lot of this to the back of my head and I really am not too concerned. But, when we got there and I got thinking about what they are looking for it kinda sunk in.

Please pray S is healthy despite all the things that didn't happen after her surgery. It wasn't very fun holding her in what was just short of a wrestling hold to keep her in place to get her blood drawn. She did great though, didn't cry-she's a tough little cookie.

And I haven't mentioned it but GUESS WHO IS FINALLY POTTY TRAINED!!!!!! She totally is-and it is wonderful :)

Ah the joys of parenthood. Don't you love it when they finally figure out something that seems so obvious to us grownups. A BIG step up. Good for her. As for the other ..... don't borrow trouble. God is surely looking out for this little girl. Her saw to it that she ended up in the right place. :)
