Peyton's 2 & Medical Update!!!!

Our baby boy turned 2 last Monday!!! Can't believe it's been 2 years since we were surrounded by family & friends welcoming him into the world. He arrived at 2:09 pm weighing 7pounds 4oz! He was immediately completely different from Avery, he was lazy where she was a busy body who wanted to be nosy and involved in everything. The biggest difference was that he didn't have reflux!!! This was a huge relief because Avery's reflux was so bad that many days it left me and her both in tears and we became hermits for most of the first two months of her life. It was completely miserable so when he didn't come out puking I don't think we were sure what to do with him. Needless to say he was an awesome addition to our family after we got home and got settled.

Last year, for his first birthday we had a sports themed party & this year his theme was dinosaurs. He has been such a champ throughout the past few months with all of the sicknesses and everything that he has gone through with his ears as well as his stomach issues. I am so proud to say that his second birthday party was one that marked a few weeks without him being sick or throwing up or running a fever! His ears are absolutely wonderful. Major thanks to our amazing ENT, Dr. Pisciotta who has been absolutely phenomenal since January. By far, the most caring doctor ever, in my little ole humble opinion.

To celebrate his second year of life we had his party this past Saturday. Peyton was surrounded by a ton of his friends & he loved every minute of it! He got lots of cool toys including several dinosaurs, both big and small, and lots of clothes which he definitely needed! Here are a few pictures.

I am so scatterbrained! I said I was going to include his medical update then published the blog without putting it in. 

There's really nothing new to report, we haven't heard from any of the results from the specialist at USA and I'm not sure when we will. She told me that if we hadn't heard from her by the first of July to give her a call so I guess that's the plan. 

We do know that he is anemic, his pediatrician ran some blood work for iron and lead that is standard for a 2 year check-up and his iron is way low. So, as of right now, that is all that we know, but he has been doing much better and has not been throwing up. Thank goodness & fingers crossed that the dry spell (literally) continues!

Ugh...I suck!

Wow...5 months of no blogging. That's pretty much par for the course for me. However, it's been a pretty insane 5 months so I've got some catching up to do.

So, last time I posted, Peyton was sick for the umpteenth time and we were seeing a new ENT. Basically, he stayed sick the entire month of February and he constantly ran a high fever and threw up randomly. On March 15th the ENT went in, removed the set of tubes he had in, cleaned out all of the gunk, put a new set in, and removed his adenoids as well. That remedied the ear problems but he was still throwing up. The ENT thought it was a reaction to the pain medication but after a few days of no meds it was still happening. We were referred to a Pediatric Gastroenterology Clinic in Mobile at USA and have been seeing her since April 23rd. He has been throwing up since the end of January and we still don't have any definite answers.

We've done blood tests, xrays, urinalysis, & stool samples...yummy right? After almost 6 months of him throwing up we still don't have any answers. It is so unbelievably frustrating and I hate seeing him like this.

It's hard to believe that he'll be 2 on Monday.

Avery has been doing great & will be going to preschool in August. She is seriously excited and cannot wait.

Brent has been coaching little league baseball & his team won their championship so he is now coaching All-Stars for the month of June.

It's been the same ole same ole with me. My Pampered Chef business is great & I am absolutely loving meeting all kinds of new people.

That's about all, we've been up to our ears in vomit for much of the past 6 months so I don't really have much to report. Okay, I have a ton to report but it'd take forever and I don't have time for that tonight.
