Quick update

Yesterday Ella had her appointment with the allergist. They did the skin test and found that she no longer (or possibly never did) has an allergy to egg whites or peanuts. Hooray!!! This morning she had an appointment at the ENT and they were able to dig all the gunk out that was blocking her ear tube (how can so much disgusting stuff be in one tiny little ear?) so she doesn't need a new one!! She has an appointment on Thursday with the eye doctor. I am nervous about this one. We received a letter from her school on Saturday that said she has possible alignment or focusing problems. When she was in the process of getting admitted into the school they take two pictures of the kids eyes with a MTI Photoscreener (whatever that is) and then a team of professionals reads the pictures. I don't think she has any major problem, she doesn't seem to have any problems seeing stuff up close or far away. Man, if she has to wear glasses I am really in for a battle. I can barely get her to keep on shoes, she is a VERY strong willed child! That's it for today!! Oh and keep Ella's boyfriend Riley in your thoughts today, he is currently in surgery at the Shriner's hospital!!!

How did the skin test go? Was it awful? I get Em's results next week.

Glad to hear that Ella's tube doesnt have to be replaced! That is a relief! Hope my future nephew-in-law has a speedy recovery! Kisses and Hugs to all of you--Aunt Tami and family

glad everything went well at the allergist and ENT. Glasses are NOT fun... its a everyday struggle to keep maysons on her! Hoping the eye doctor goes well toO!

Keep me posted on how your eye dr appointment goes today. I'll be sending good thoughts your way for no glasses.

Riley is doing well. It amazes how quickly he bounces back. He is not letting the splint/sling slow him down at all.
