I'm getting gray hair!

Lily is constipated again! The Miralax just isn't cutting it I guess, it's like she's built up a tolerance! It worked fine for 2 weeks, and now she hasn't pooped since Thursday. So I call the doctor again.

I talk to the nurse... of course my doctor isn't in the office today! *bangs head.* So I had to tell THIS nurse the whole story... again. This is getting old. Now she has to relay that story to the OTHER doctor... like a telephone game! I wonder how many details will get lost along the way. She acted like she thinks this doctor will want us to go back on the Nutramigen.
I don't care anymore. I explained to her, again, why we tried to switch back to Gentlease. We've tried everything to keep her "regular" and nothing works for more than a couple weeks. I'm sick of making her miserable and I'm very wary having her on a laxative... I definitely don't want her to become dependant on it. I think I'd rather drain my wallet than increase the Miralax dose, honestly. Guess we'll see!

Parents as Teachers went well. She said Collin is very smart and Lily is delayed. Well, duh. I think she's going to check on her development next month before anyone refers to anyone who might be able to help her development.

What a beautiful baby girl! Thank you for leaving your comment on our blog. It is great to hear from another CMH family. Dr. Simon is wonderful, isn't she? Our cardiologist is Dr. Gelatt, but Dr. Simon has seen us and worked with Kyle several times in the past 13 years. I'll be praying for you and your little girl!
