It's A ....

Gall Bladder!

I had my sonogram this morning. I took the brood with me due to scheduling conflicts with the hubs. I insisted the older three take their Nintendo Ds' and figured they'd stay in the waiting room. I took the younger two but I forgot a very important thing.

Anneliese had to be woke up in order to go to the appointment. I dressed her, changed her, and gave her a sippy cup. I did not, however, feed her anything. We waited for a good 30 minutes before they called me back. Everyone was doing great and I felt like an awesome mom with awesome kids.

Anneliese was in her stroller and Graham was in toe. Graham was super coy and quiet. Anneliese decided she was hungry about 2 minutes into the sonogram. She began to scream and kept it up for the full 10-15 minutes it took for the tech to tell me to take a deep breath and hold it 20 times.

She didn't give me any information and turned the screen so I couldn't see it. At one point she yelled over the girl that possibly they were scared due to the dark room and sono equipment. I gently told her we have 5 children and they are as familiar with her equipment as they are with their favorite toy :) They love the "baby camera." She teased this time wouldn't be as fun as those sono's, to which I replied,"Lets hope not! That would be a shocker!" :)

When it was finally over she smiled at Graham and told him, "you did really good. You are a good boy." Then she looked at Anneliese and said, "You did not do good, you were a bad girl." Wow...

I'm eager to find out what she did or didn't see but I'm becoming more convinced it's just the ulcers. I have a bladder infection and they started me on antibiotics yesterday and my stomach has hurt ever since. Apparently ulcers don't appreciate Cipro.

I'm just plugging away but am desperate to feel "good" again. This bladder infection was a bit of a step backwards. Thankfully the antibiotics are helping and that pain is lessening.
