Puke sessions so far: 3

Urine analysis came back normal, so it’s not a UTI.  While it would have been nice to have an actual diagnosis, we’re glad for the result because if the test had come back abnormal they would have stuck a catheter in him for further testing.  One more trauma avoided.

But let me tell you, he was none too pleased when it was time to remove the plastic baggy that was (excessively) taped all around his wee-wee to collect the urine sample.  Even armed with adhesive-remover, it was an experience I hope never to repeat.

Also, did you know that if you Google “toddler back pain” you come up with two things:

  1. A plethora of parents in forums inquiring about the same thing and not getting any answers
  2. A long list of possible diagnoses that have VERY SCARY NAMES.

In other health-related updates, Jens had his CAT scan today and the doctor doesn’t think he will need surgery (PRAISE!) but does want to refer him to another doctor in Anchorage (who is, coincidentally, one of Jens’ extended relatives) for a second opinion.

    Just had to tell you that you crack me up.  Never fails!!  When I read your blog entries, and it’s not everyday, but when I do I am always laughing.  It’s like I’m talking to you…

    Hey if you want to keep up with us, I started my own (VERY BASIC, I might add) blog.  I don’t know how i can add you, or if I can at all.

    Anywho, here’s the address:

    I hope everyone feels better around there!  Sounds like Mommy has been a very busy woman!!
