Shelby & her teacher, Mrs. Giardono, on the last day of Kindergarten

Shelby was admitted the other night. She has no fever now, but has diarhhea and tummy pain when she coughs. I thought her cough was getting better, but last evening started to get worse again. We are mainly in here because her ANC is so low and no one is making a decision on what to do with her about it....a repeat of March....very frustrating. Don't be freaked out by the link for the ANC, it just gives a good description of what it is.

Labs were just drawn so, we'll see what those show. Her ANC when we came in Wednesday night was 805, yesterday it was 648, and soon we'll see what today's is. Its not liver issues that are keeping her in this time, its those low blood counts. Someone needs to figure this out. In March her ANC went from 700 down to 150 when she was sick. It took an injection of Nupogen to bring it back that what is going to happen again? Its only a bandaid on top of the real problem (which no one has figured out what that is). Sorry to ramble....frustrated here. She's not really sick enough to be here, but there's enough going on for her to not be at home.

Riley ready to head to camp on "Crazy Hair" day

On to my other kids...Riley has enjoyed a week of Camp Winnebago. It is a day camp just north of Rockford. Today is her last day and they will be taking the kids to the Y to swim. Riley will be in heaven! She also will be exhausted from being on-the-go all week. Some R & R time will be in order for her.

Avery in her hot rod. Watch out, I'll run you over!

Avery, Avery, Avery....what a cute, happy chubby baby! We thought she was handling the shuffle from Daddy to Mommy to Grammie, but according to Daddy (who got to sleep at home last night) she was up on and off during the night. We'll have to make sure she has her nap in her crib today. It was just too exciting at Grammie's yesterday with cousin Katie there and all the ceiling fans for her to nap good. And she's so darn cute, who can resist a baby who wants to play instead of sleep?!?!?!? add just a bit more stress to this. Scott's ASSHOLE boss let him go May 29th. Just out of the blue...what an asshole. It is helpful to have Scott around and is nice to spend time with him, but he's lookin' for a job. Anybody know of anything?

I'll update more later.

Blegh. Unbelievable.

I wish I had something to offer you about the ANC issue, but it's not something we've ever had to deal with. Trouble comes in so many awesome varieties, doesn't it? Just lovely (snort).

I'll keep checking in...
