I don't know yet...

I still have not gotten any results back from the lab. Madeleine has not gone to the bathroom since last Thursday so I may have a new problem on my hands. Anyway, I have been putting her back in pull-ups through this whole ordeal and now I am going to have to go back to encouraging the potty. After a week she had even stopped needing pull-ups at night and at nap time! Now, we are back to using the M&M jar. I hate having to use candy but that's what works for her. I think she has figured out how much more convenient it is to use the pull up. I really only have a problem when she is playing and doesn't want to stop what she's doing.
As soon as I take the time to download some pictures I'll do a new post for Katherine. She is soooooo smiley now and I love it!

The doctor think Madeleine may have giardia, c-diff, or some kind of parasite. Sooooo, I am trying to collect a sample and then maybe I'll know something else soon.
Katherine did great at her appointment. I will post her stats and and pics soon!

All I have to say is....... We STILL have diarrhea over here!!!!!!!! I don't know what's going on! We are going to the doctor tomorrow for Katherine's 2 mth check up (which she is almost 10 wks) so, I made Madeleine an appointment too. She keeps saying that her back hurts. Which I can't figure out if it's because she had a nightmare about Monkey's biting her or if it actually hurts. When I ask her directly about where the monkey bit her she says on her face above her eye. The nightmare incident is a whole other story but, we are totally traumatized about it and it's causing wayyyyyyyy to much drama! My house is FULL of drama these days. Including myself :) I'll update about the appointment's tomorrow!

So far I have scorched a pot of boiling water on the stove b/c I forgot about it. I put a casserole in the oven with a plastic lid on it and it melted into the casserole and all over the bottom of my stove. I tried to take both kids on a walk and we got too far away from home and madeleine melts down. I have to carry her AND push the stroller for about a mile. Madeleine has not had a nap today. Daniel won't be home until really late and won't be here most of tomorrow. And best of all.............. madeleine has had diarrhea for two whole days and it's doesn't look like we are getting better!!!!!!!!! It's been on her comforter, the sheets, the floor, both toilets, all over both bathtubs, ALL over herself, and yes, we have even managed to get it all over the walls. I will spare you the details if you are wondering how that happened. I have done more laundry than you can EVER imagine and I am totally out of clorox. Needless to say..... I really want our diapers back!!!!
f you are wondering why in the world I would take both kids on a walk then let me explain. Madeleine seems to care less that she is sick. I would really be better off if she felt puny and just sat around watching cartoons and napping. Instead, she is bouncing off the walls and we are quarantined!!! She still has a raging appetite and wants to eat everything that she is not supposed to (like dairy). Can anyone explain this???????

Be glad there are not any pictures with this post!!!!
