Turns out, btw, it was just a stomach bug that circled back around our family and got all of us who didn't have it when Chicken had it. We all threw up with it, but the back pain was the worst part. So in a way, Dr. Me was right that it was all in his spine. ;oD
Today, she once again reminded me how great she was with my kids although there wasn't anything overly special about the visit. She talked to Punky who was nervous to be touched by her since her hospitalization a few months ago. She calmed her fears and Punky was just fine and even talked to her a little bit. I was amazed. Chicken couldn't care less and just wanted the bunny on her stethoscope. That bunny has saved us many times from a meltdown.
Chicken got two shots and they checked him for anemia, for which he was fine. My babies are "perfect" as my doc would say.
In other news, I'm starting to get nervous about finding out what this baby is. Everyone, start chanting "It's a girl, it's a girl" and maybe just maybe we'll get one. In fact, I was talking to a nurse at the doc's office today who had two brothers and said she always wanted a sister because she didn't have the bond with her two brothers that they had with each other, even though they were close. In all honesty, I think it'll bother me that it's not a girl, although I certainly won't be upset we're having this baby. I've just had my hopes set on another girl so Punky can have the sister girls always crave.
