Here's Sami's 6 month update:
She's now 17 pounds, 9 ounces, and is 25 1/4 inches tall. She got 4 shots and one of them is the flu shot. Poor kid. She had a 101.4 fever today, so I stayed home and took care of her all day.
Everything looks good. I asked about her hips and why I need to go to a different specialist, and she explained to me. I now understand. I thought they meant her fat fold on her inner thighs. Nope, she flipped Sami over and showed me that her bottom buttocks doesn't line up correctly, so that's why they want to double-check. And also found out Seattle Children's is also in Olympia too. DUH... I don't NEED to drive all the way to Seattle.
As for MY update on my hip bursitis - I'm still taking medication, and seems to be helping a bit but not 100% healed yet. My biggest pain is when I bend over to pick up things off the floor. I'm now telling Abby to pick up stuff off the floor for me. Nice having a kid slave, eh? :-)
Halloween is coming up soon! There's sooo many activities I want to take Abby and Sami to but I can't choose... And I'm sure they all will be packed to the max. We may just stay home and tour around our own neighborhood. Like last year's. Abby had a good time that way. Abby will be a LION, and Sami will be a pumpkin OR a duck. I need to put the duck costume on her and see if it is too big.
