It seems Milk of Magnesia is used so often in my life now that I have learned to abbreviate it! Yesterday Andy and I took Em to the GI doctor in Little Rock. We were there THREE hours! Yes, it was a long time, but the doctor spent 45 minutes talking to us. I'm willing to wait if it means we can have all of our questions answered.

There is still some speculation on Em's xray. It could possibly be something, but it could also be just the way the xray was taken. The doctor is going to take it to the radiologist at Children's to see if it is really anything we need to worry about. She really doesn't think so, though, and she really helped us feel better about what is going on. She believes that the change in Emory's diet to solid foods and her holding her poop in has made her constipation progressively worse. So we are starting a regimen of Milk of Magnesia - MUCH more than we were giving - to get her back on track and to help her "forget" that it used to hurt, so she doesn't feel the need to hold it in. She answered many of my questions and I felt great after the appointment.

I just wanted to put a quick update. I don't have much energy today because I drove 7 hours today and worked for 5, so I'm beat! But, I am very excited to report that I got NEW FURNITURE in my living room!! I'm so excited and hope to post a picture soon!

Thank you everyone for your prayers for my little girl!

Proverbs 18:24
"A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother."
