neurology update

This morning, Ally had a follow up neurologist appointment. 

I'm sure I wrote about this like 2 years ago, but she was having seizures when she was 2 years old and she's been on medication since then.  She has had NO EPISODES since then, and her neurologist is confident she'll outgrow them.  He said we can wean her off her medication in April, after cold and flu season.  Yay!

Oh, and can I just say I LOVE Ally's neurologist?  He's such a great guy.  He talked to me for 10 minutes about Ally's hearing loss and how much of a great kid she is.  There needs to be more doctors like that.  Great bedside manner. 

Here is our appointment in pictures:

I point the camera at her and this is what she does.  What a goofball.

So, that was our morning today.  How do you like that?  2 posts in 2 days.  I'm on a roll...

weekend wrap up

Happy Monday!  What?  It's not Monday?  Oh yeah, that's right.  I had a 3 day weekend because Dimitri developed a fever on Sunday evening and I stayed home with him on Monday.  He's on the upswing now.  I brought him to the doctor and there was nothing wrong with him besides that darn fever.  He is teething big time, so I'm chalking it up to that. Good times (sarcasm). 

Anyway, back to the weekend.  On Saturday we just hung out at home and cleaned and did laundry.  Jealous?  Adam was hunting and then when he got home, I got ready to go out.  I had plans to meet up with 2 girls I went to high school with for dinner.  We met at PF Chang's (yum!).  We ordered up some red wine (me and Brianna), and a martini concoction for Sarah.  For dinner we got some lettuce wraps to start - um YUM.  And then we ordered the combo lomein, lemon chicken, and crispy honey chicken.  It was all delicious.  We had SUCH a good time!  It was like a day hadn't passed.  My stomach hurt (from laughing) for about an hour after we left.  I didn't get a picture of the 3 of us, unfortunately.  One day I'll have a nice camera and take a lot more pictures.  For now, I have to use my iPhone for everything.  But anyway, I did take a picture of myself on the way there.  Super safe, I know. 

hey, chubby cheeks
Then on Sunday, the kids and I went to a baby shower for my cousin's wife.  She is having a boy!  It was fun.  After that, we just went home and relaxed.  I made some homemade mac and cheese and shake and bake chicken for dinner.  It's all gourmet, all the time, in the Musatov household.  Then the fever started around 5:00 and that's all that's consumed my mind since then.  I hate fevers in kids. 

We did take a little trip to the park last night, and Dimitri was in good spirits.  See?

Anyway, that's the condensed version of my weekend.  Now there's 3 minutes you'll never get back.  You're welcome.
