bladder/kidney update....chicken pox and 14 years!

What a crazy few weeks we have had at our house! We have been fairly healthy around here as of late, but just as you start thinking that....the bombs start dropping! We were first greeted with the lovely stomach flu (my personal favorite)! The only ones victim to that was Spencer, Emily and I. I was glad the rest of the gang got away from it.Then, we had the much anticipated ultra sounds and scans on Christopher's Bladder and Kidney's. I always get so nervous at the appointments, but as my brother(a pediatrician) recently told one of my sister's "It's time to put your big girl pants on and deal with it"!That was so funny to me...Love him. But, I think my big girl pants have been permanantly fastened on for quite some time now.It's just the way it has to be.
Everything went really well with his Dr.s appt..Although it shows his right kidney is still swollen and he is still showing to have reflex on that side...it has improved!!!! The tech doing the scans was taking forever, because to her everything looked abnormal. But, When looking at the comparisons with the Dr. From 3 months ago, they look so much better. So we walked out of there with big smile's on our faces. That was a good day.
Then, another bomb drops!!!! I was noticing some bumps on Christopher, One on his Head and one on his tummy. I just watched them to see how they changed, and the next morning I took off his jammies and they were everywhere! I took him to the Dr.s and he has Chicken Pox!!! OOH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!But, Remember my big girl pants are on so I am taking a deep breath and I am dealing with it rather calmly i should say.They have him on antibiotics, so that should help lessen the severity of it. What a stud he is I tell you, He is just as happy as can be even though i know he must be miserable.

On top of all of this today Robert and I celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. I don't know how much celebrating we will be doing with all the stuff going on at home! But, as I look back on these last 14 years, I think MAN We have really been through alot together.But, We are such a great team, that when trials come our way we have been able to meet them head on together. I am so grateful for my sweet husband. He is truly the best there is, and he just keeps getting better and better!
