Needles don't bother me...

I said dumbly to the doctor this morning. You can give me a million shots and it won't bother me at all.

And then I screamed. No, really, I did. I think the longest needle ever was inserted into the top of my foot today. Inside was steroids. Hopefully, this will help my foot issues. She also prescribed oral steroids. And said to tell everyone that I will be a barrel o' fun while taking these. So, fair warning to all who will see me IRL the next 2 weeks! :) Lance has never been so glad to be out-of-town!
I go back to the dr. in 2 weeks to see if the 'roids are helping and plan the next course of action.

In other news, we have on our hands a FABULOUS FALCON! N was the Falcon of the Week at school last week! We are so proud of him - he has worked very hard in 1st grade this year!

L had her 4 y.o. check-up last Friday. Her dr. advised us to try giving her some orange juice (we have eliminated all fruits/juices from her diet due to stomach issues). So, over the weekend, L indulged and oh, did she love that OJ. But, alas, the stomach issue came back and the OJ has been removed. L told me this morning that Dr. Meyer was WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. And L, she was right, right, right. I do hope L outgrows this fruit intolerance, allergy, or whatever it may be. But for now, Gatorade is as close as this girl will get to juice.

Oh I hope your foot problems are solved. I told you about my mom, so fingers crossed.

Yay N! Way to go buddy!

Sorry L, its a total bummer you can't have fruit. Lets hope it will pass.

Too bad L can't have fruit. I love fruit and fruit juices. Congrats to N on his accomplishment and good luck to you with your feet.

I sure pray you can get some help and relief for the foot problems! That's horrible!
Being on steriods can be so hard, I hope you don't have too many horrible side effects.

OH, my little A is such a Big fruit eater and drinker, I can't imagine that problem!

Congrats to N! Sad news on the fruit and the foot. The good thing is that you understand what is causing L's problem, so know how to avoid it! But, fruit is hard to pass up. Hope the shot helps! Maybe you got a big bird band-aid to make it feel better? :-)
