Clinic Visit

Not much going on around here these days. The weather has been really nice and we've been spending tons of time outside. Its supposed to get cold now, just in time for Halloween. I'll definitely have to post some pictures after that because the kids costumes are CUTE!

We had a clinic visit on Monday and are hoping that we get a good culture back later this week. Hopefully our pseudomonas is gone again and will stay gone this time. Drew's overall health looks good. I got to see his CT scan that the doctor still says shes very happily shocked about. Everyone kind of just expected things to not look good with all the trouble that he had over the past year, but alas, it looked just fine. They said that sometimes in younger kids there is some evidence of bronchiectasis in the upper lobes but he doesn't seem to have any signs of that whatsoever. There wasn't any signs of lung damage and everything looks just the way its supposed to. I'd like to keep it that way.

Drew is currently on a hunger strike. I haven't figured out what he's trying to prove, but the boy won't eat. Ok let me correct that - he won't eat anything but fruit and an occasional corndog. The boy who use to love peanut butter now steers clear of it. He won't eat chicken nuggets, corn dogs, hamburgers, pasta, nothing. His weight isn't down (thank God) but i'm afraid we're headed there. I hear that toddlers go through these stages. Its just a little more challenging for a toddler who needs fat to thrive. We might be turning to smoothies soon.

I'll post an update when we get Drew's culture back, probably on Friday. Until then, I hope that our lives remain uneventful in a good way!
