One more day...

with Eli home! It has been fun having him here and getting back to normal things like grocery shopping and soccer games. It is amazing the simple things you take for granted.

We have an appointment this week with endochrinology- so hopefully we will get some more answers, but I imagine the ultrasound will be the difinitive on his adrenals.

There was definitely more drama this week. (we just can't get away!) The refill for Eli's steroid was different than the original refill we ordered from Walgreens pharmacy. Children's pharmacy read us the original order and looks like Walgreens goofed up his prescription. What does this mean you ask? It means we have been overdosing our newborn son for almost 20 days! The Walgreens prescription had us giving Eli twice as much steroid than needed and we have no idea what this could be doing to his growth and development. Needless to say, we believe this is absolutely unacceptable and are taking this up with the chain's management. We are watching Eli closely as we drop his steroid use in half now. As if we don't have enough on our plate already, Geez!

On a lighter note, Jim is convinced he is starting to smile (I still think it's gas LOL) and he coos now and then when he is content. Torrey and Ava love to hold and rock him. Ava thinks her name is "Big sister" and tells everybody when they ask her name.

I am not the only one losing sleep around here:

I might have thrown a brick at the pharmacist in walgreens.
