Unscheduled Appointment

So this morning I had to call the doctor because I have been having almost the same cough that I had while pregnant and shortness of breath. Dr. Kanard asked me to come in to be checked out. So I went in at 2:00 to see Tricia the dr's assistant who scheduled a CT scan to see if it was a blood clot in my lungs. Luckily after 2 hours it was negative. The only problem is that I don't know why I have the cough. Dr. Kanard said it could just be this whole sickness season and it will pass in a few days. I will have to call back if it doesn't go away in a week and then we will run more tests.

Playing with my wig!

Yesterday I wore my wig to take Lizzie to her 4 month check up and when I got home I took it off and plopped it on Isaac's head. He didn't automatically take it off so I went to get the camera. Then Isaac and I convinced Ethan to wear it and finally we put it on Lizzie. They are just so cute.

Waiting for #6

So my next treatment is on Thursday. I was talking to a friend about it yesterday at church and I came up with an analogy about waiting for the next treatment to come. It's like waiting for the end of school because you're suppose to meet the school bully at the swings and it's only 10:00 a.m. The worst thing right now is knowing that your about to feel bad again and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

I also had to call the nurse last week because two of my finger tips and an earring hole all of a sudden became yucky and infected; so I have to take pills for that. One of those finger tips is somewhat separating from the skin, not too pretty. I am also noticing that my eyebrows are really thinning and so are my eye lashes; hopefully that's all they do, and then grow back. The good news is that the hair that was left on my head is starting to grow a little bit so I have several 1 inch hairs everywhere, kind of like Homer Simpson.
