1. So, I didn't make the cake. Emily's friend, Applemom, made it for me. The moment I saw the cake that pesky ole perfect woman made for Emily, I knew that I must have one for Little Sister's party. Everything else revolved around the cake. It was vanilla cake with whipped cream frosting and mini-chocolate chips. It was delicious! And the two little candles on top? Crafted by Applemom for the occasion! She should open a business, really.
2. I talked to Sister's doctor last week about her procedure and they didn't have the results. They needed a second opinion, so they sent her biopsies to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. It looks like she could have Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or another inflammatory bowel disease. It was not what I was expecting to hear. To be perfectly honest, I was expecting to hear "Nothing is wrong...we don't know why she has the problems she does." I got my crying out and decided to move forward and wait for a definitive answer. I've waited and waited and waited. Still nothing. This mama is about to throw a tantrum.
3. Some things you should try:
*Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip at Chili's. YUM.
*Gerber Grins & Giggles baby lotion in the Sweet Pea scent. It's sweet
*Homemade laundry detergent. Yes, you heard me right. My sister-in-law introduced me and it's really easy, and really cheap! I just made the dry powder. It should last me a long while!
Have a Happy Wednesday!
**UPDATE: I heard from the doctor after I posted this yesterday. She asked us to come in this morning to discuss everything and discuss treatment options. She didn't tell me over the phone what is going on. I've been a bit of a mess. Steve is out of town (and he's very upset that he's not here), so my awesome friend Emily is going with me to the appointment for support and to help me listen to the doctor.**
