Well, good news from my end at least! My daughter's tests came back and she had an infection which, inept as he was, the second doctor gave the right antibiotics for and she is doing much better. He was way off on his diagnosis, and the medicine didn't fit the diagnosis he gave, but it IS working and that is what counts. I am so glad to finally see some colour in her cheeks and the life back in her eyes. Thanks everyone for your prayers and advice.

Good to hear she's doing better LP.

I just made it in. Justin and I have been at the radiology department since 8:00 this morning, took an iodine pill then back for the thyroid scan. I'm so tired and still need to take daughter to dance class tonight. I need to be back at the radiology dept at 7:00 a.m., pediatrician at 3:45 then take daughter to her school dance at 6 p.m. Sigh!!! I need a break.

Oh, I feel for you!! Kids take up so much of your time and when they're sick, it's worse because your stressed on top of being tired. Try to get some sleep tonight.

Dina, I am really praying for Justin and adding one for strength for you!

Everyone, I really appreciate all your thoughts and prayers for my daughter and we still need them. Tara took a turn for the worst today and ended up back at the doctor we went to on Monday. I couldn't go with her because our dog was sick and we ended up at the vet this morning and DH and I had our own appointments out of town.

Tara called me and said that the doctor had ordered a copy of the CT scan and that it showed NO inflamation or infection of the colon as the second hospital doc had said. The infection that Tara's doctor (one I have gone to myself here in town and she is very good found from the tests on Monday was legitimate and is actually clearing up. However, the pain was becoming acute again and the female doctor said the CT scan showed definitely......are you ready for this..... inflamation around the APPENDIX!!!!! I am an hour away and have my poor daughter crying on the phone worried that she will lose her new job and in terrible pain, reliving last weekend all over again.

The doctor says she wants the ultrasound done, but outside the hospital there would be a 3 week wait. She ordered a third set of bloodwork and sent Tara home to wait. Well, I get a call as I am coming out of my doctor that the blood work once again is normal so "it can't be appendix". She says Tara can't go to work until the ultrasound which has been moved up one week to June 3. They are pretty well certain that it is a cyst, but need the ultrasound to prove it. She just wants to know what is wrong and to feel better.

I am just beside myself. I had to deal with my own bad news that it may take another 6 months to see the surgeon, let alone get a surgery date, for my knee, and that I will have to go for cortosone shots in both arms AND both hips. My dog is very sick with a form of kennel cough, DH's work was in chaos today so his day off was cut short, and then I find out that this young woman whom I love as if she was my own child, is in such emotional and physical pain.

I have a catering order for tomorrow that I have to start working on and my heart is not in it. I feel so bad going off like this when there are others, such as Dina, Stacey's BIL, etc. who have as many or more burdens, but this is just such a wonderful place to be able to let it all out.
