Today I went back to bed after the kids went to school. Only for a couple of hours though. I had to go to Dr Mays with my oldest daughter this afternoon. The doctor looked at the results of all of the different tests that she’s had recently. The ultrasounds came up completely normal. No more ovarian cysts, no problems at all! The blood tests were mainly normal as well. The only things that showed up were that her iron levels are low and her thyroid is on the low side also, just a little bit though nothing too concerning. Both of these things can cause a decrease in overall energy levels. The dr thinks that she has irritable bowel syndrome. She believes that is what has been causing all of the sharp pains in her abdomen. The dr wants her to change her diet and add some activity daily. I think my daughter was a bit frustrated, as she has been in pretty bad pain and was hoping for some more definitive answers. I guess she’s just going to have to go with what the dr said and start taking better care of herself.
After the dr’s appointment, we drove home (in the wet muck, not quite snow, not quite rain). We got to town just in time to pick the kids up from school. When we got home, we had to clean up the front entry, to make it easier for trick or treaters. Then we had a quick supper. Right after eating, my hubby, my oldest and my son went to one of his friends places to go Haloweening (is that a word??) together. My younger daughter and I set up the pumpkins 🎃 and handed out candy to a few kids. The weather was horrible!! It was like raining slush…isn’t that called sleet – lol!! It was wet and cold and miserable. I’m guessing that’s why I ended up handing out less candy than normally…there just weren’t as many kids as usual. Around 7:00, I drove my daughter to her friends house. They’re watching movies there, then a couple of them are coming here to sleep over. The parents where they’re watching movies said no, so they decided to come here. After handing out candy, when they got back home, we watched Halloweentown. A movie from like the 80’s that my girls always loved. Then we came up to bed and here I am. I’m super tired, it’s been another long day. So, I’m going to head to bed now. Night All! 💤😴
