...this little girl had a great 15 month checkup at the pediatrician today! Weighing in at just under 23 pounds and measuring 31 and a half inches tall, Cate continues to take after her namesake (my sister) in being long and lean (her weight is only in the 50th percentile while her height and head circumference are closer to the 90th). She took her two shots in the arm like a champ and we're praying that she won't experience any feverish side effects, which can happen with the vaccines she received today. The doctor is not concerned that Cate doesn't want to walk more than a few steps on her own-- this is a huge relief for me as I was starting to get just a little worried.
As for mommy...I've made it through two days of work and have had a pretty much normal appetite. I'm continuing the anti-nausea meds just as a precaution/preventative measure. Waiting until I would actually feel the nausea (which would only happen if something else is going on besides the infection) could mean waiting an hour or longer for it to kick in and help me-- bad news when you're trying to teach a class full of almost high school freshman with 15 days of school left. I'm hoping and praying that this weekend, when I stop taking them preventatively, that the nausea will not come back (which would be a big indicator that everything I've been dealing with was related to the infection and that there is probably not some larger gastro-intestinal issue going on). I'll know the results of the hospital tests on the 26th. Please continue to pray with us that this was all just an infection. I appreciate everyone's support and prayers.
