More biopsies completed today. I'm glad all the lumps were on my back and not on my face. Can you imagine? I'd look crazy with stitches in so many different locations! So, now we sit and wait till these biopsy results come back.

An update on the little one -- Ryan has gone on a feeding strike and is now down to less than 20 ounces of formula each day. He's been doing this for about 3 weeks now. He has only gained 6 ounces in the past 3 months. Not enough. And, he's sleeping about 20+ hours each day. The GI specialist said he's not even getting enough to maintain organ function. So, since he won't eat more, we are meeting with the pediatric surgeon next Thursday to discuss putting in a g-tube for feedings.

I also STILL haven't heard back from Dr. Seals regarding his MRI. How often can I call his office before I'm too much of an annoyance? But, really. It's been almost THREE WEEKS! His assistant said he has been unable to get in touch with the Radiologist who read the MRI. Really? Still? The report mentions the possibility of inborn errors of metabolism. I'm not so happy about that. I just need more information.

So, that's it for now. Did you see today's my anniversary? Maybe I'll have an ice cold coke to celebrate.

Just kidding!
