Not Enough Time!

Lately I have felt like I just don't have enough time for anything. Time has just flown by since I had Roweyn. 4.5 months already?! Really?! Yeah, I really can't believe it either. With everything that has been going on with Roweyn health wise, I really just haven't had time for anything else. She, of course, is my first priority and lately my only priority. I feel like I have never seen days, weeks and even months go by as fast as they have been. 

I've been putting together my resume, because it is definitely time for me to find a job. Not really because I'm getting antsy of being home all the time, cause well really, I'm rarely home. Monday and Tuesday were the first weekdays in weeks that I didn't have to go anywhere. The real reason I'm ready for a job is because I unfortunately am running out of the small amount of money I have. Ha no surprise there though, right? So my resume is put together, but I've had absolutely no time to take it into any salons, the last couple weeks I was hoping to take it to a few places but going to the Dr one to three times a week for 6 weeks has pretty much killed any chance I've had. Plus I've been going to track meets, having play dates and going to play group.

Now that we've finally gotten this health scare with Roweyn under control I might actually have some free time soon. By the way, Friday was her last urine re-check and there was no blood in it. The Dr is pretty convinced that it's just uric crystal acid in her urine, besides the one time she had blood.

I was able to get my hair done today, got my roots touched up and put some more blonde in it! Now I just need to make a trip up to Reno soon for a hair cut...and possibly some more blonde. :) Hoping that I'll be able to make it up there the beginning of June.

Roweyn has decided to change up her sleep schedule. I'm thinking she might be going through a growth spurt, or she just decided to switch things up. She is going to bed earlier but then she wakes up 2 or more times between 4 and 8 am. And now she's not taking any long naps. Just a few 15 to 30 min naps throughout the day. So I'm pretty much exhausted right now and not getting much of a break from her. But I'm sure she will change it up again soon.

My Very 1st Mother's Day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I know I did!

Had breakfast in bed with my Mom and Roweyn, that my Dad and little sister Tayelor made. It was great! Banana pancakes, bacon, fruit salad, and chocolate covered strawberries that they made!

After we were done Cyder licked all of our plates on the bed. My Mom opened all of our cards and presents we got her. I opened up my card and I'm going to get a necklace I found on Etsy with Roweyn's name on it.

We met my brothers Kadin and Trevor at The 5 Mile House Restaurant for lunch and had a wonderful time! I had a bloody mary that I had been craving pretty much since I got pregnant! haha And it was just as good as I hoped it would be. Then we all went back to our house, after Kadin and Trevor picked up my niece Devyn, and had a very relaxing afternoon.

I think one of the best parts of the day was when Roweyn decided to roll over for the very first time! She rolled from her back to her stomach, but had a little trouble with her arm, then later she rolled from her stomach to her back! We were all super excited about it! And that was definitely the best Mother's Day present I could ask for!

We have a bunch of photos from the whole weekend and I will hopefully get them  posted on Facebook soon and maybe put a few on here as well!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Test Results!

So all of Roweyn's results came back negative! Great news of course! Praise God! But we're not too happy with the drs. In the past 5 weeks that this stuff has been going on, we've seen 4 different Drs more than once each. Not because we wanted to, but because we go to a clinic and every day a different Dr works there. You've already heard about the first 3 weeks, so skipping that part....two weeks ago when we did two urine tests, one in a bladder bag and one with a catheter, they both had blood in them. So the Dr put her on ammoxicilin, sent them to the lab to have them both cultured. Two days later, the same Dr called saying there was growth in the urine and so she was put on different antibiotics to treat it. She never said what kind of infection Roweyn had or which culture the bacteria grew in. 

So fast forward those two weeks to this week, and Roweyn ends up still having some pink in her diapers, which brings us to this past Mondays Dr appt. with a different Dr of course. We brought another urine sample in, which came back negative for blood, the Dr looks at the other Drs notes who sent in the cultures and decides to order the ultrasound and blood work, which we did on Tuesday, he put her on more antibiotics, and he also sent a referral to a Urologist at UC Davis. Which brings us to Friday, with Roweyn's normal Pediatrician whom we havent seen or spoken to since this first started. He looks at the results and says something about the one culture having bacteria in it. Which prompts my mom to say...there was two cultures done...which one had the bacteria? He then realizes that the bacteria grew in the bladder bag sample and not the catheter sample, and the number is not significant enough to be worried about. Seriously?! These 3 different Drs who all looked at the results, all misread them! 

So basically, the antibiotics were unnecessary and so was the ultrasound and blood tests! He says that more than likely the pink is uric acid crystals, which every doctor we have seen has said. She did however have the unexplained blood in her urine one week and green poop for quite some time, so we do actually think the antibiotics were beneficial to both of those problems because the blood is apparently gone (or its just hit and miss) and her poop is back to its normal yellow color. But the extra antibiotics and other tests were most likely unnecessary. And we hopefully don't have to go to UC Davis now.

It's great knowing that Roweyn is healthy, but it definitely makes me feel bad that Roweyn had to go through all of this. I am glad though that she won't remember any of this happening.

We go back in next Friday with her regular Pediatrician for a recheck of her urine to make sure there's no more blood.

Thank you everyone for all your prayers and continuing support! We greatly appreciate it! And would love if you could keep praying for us since she's not quite in the clear yet! Please pray for the pink color (which we're hoping is just uric acid crystals and will go away soon) will go away and that her recheck on friday will be negative for blood!

OH!! and P.S.!! Roweyn weighs 11lbs 13.5oz and is 24in long! She's a teeny tiny thing! But is fine on the growth chart! :)

Hope all you Moms have a wonderful Mothers Day tomorrow!
