October 16, 2011

Charlotte will be happy to see October come to a close. Earlier this month she developed the worst diaper rash her daycare provider had ever seen, and it was that statement that inspired me to take her to see a doctor. While at the doctor we learned that indeed her diaper rash was bad - so bad it was as though her skin had been burned - but that's not all, she also had a double ear infection and she was wheezing. So, the last few weeks have been filled with prescription butt paste, 2 antibiotics, and the nebulizer.

Despite all of this Charlotte has been absolutely delightful. She is incredibly resilient, and it's that resiliency that we know will carry her through the scope she is undergoing on Tuesday. Her GI doctor has decided that vomiting at this point is not normal, so it's time to take a more scientific approach. We'll finally get to learn if her esophagus is irritated by any allergens or if there truly is no explanation for her vomiting.

On a lighter note, we had a great weekend. This morning we enjoyed Target Free Sunday at the Children's Museum (thank you, Target) and yesterday Grandpa and Grandma Distad took us to the Apple Orchard.

It'll be fun to see how much she grows over the next year!

Charlotte was nice enough to ride the Apple Train with Patrick so he wouldn't be scared.

Charlotte's first hay ride! It was also my and possibly Patrick's first hay ride.

We survived the corn maze!

Please send positive vibes Charlotte's way on Tuesday. We arrive at the hospital at 6 a.m. for the 8 a.m. procedure which should take only 10 minutes. Hopefully she wakes up from the anesthesia easily and we're home by late morning.

Sorry to hear about the diaper rash and other travails! We'll be thinking about you guys today. Hopefully the scope procedure will finally give you some answers about the vomiting...
