June cough culture and vitamin levels

The June cough culture looked great! Apparently exactly the same as last time meaning she still grew the influenza from last time but that is apparently no big deal...and apparently there really was some kind of staph on the last one that is not there now. All of that to say this one is good:) Also if you'll remember, they drew blood to check vitamin levels...which were all normal except for one type of vitamin E that was elevated. I would think better high than low but I am waiting for a call back on that. In other news, for the first time since she was born Ashton had a cold that got better before she had to go into the hospital! Praise Him! Also, in the space of two weeks she has begun to crawl, pull up, and has cut two teeth! She is keeping us all on our toes:)

June ACH visit

We had our June check up last week. Ashton weights 16 lbs and 5 0z and was 26 inches long... they are always off from her pediatrician who said 27 inches the week before:) Anyway... 50th percentile which is still the green, or "no risk" area! Yay! We are still waiting on results from the cough culture and the vitamin levels. She has a little cold right now and actually started getting sick the day before this appt, so she was sick while she was there. They said she sounded clear in her lungs, so they just told us to to four treatments a day instead of two, which we knew. Let me tell you, though it is much easier now that I am not working, it is still a challenge to get in four of those treatments a day... Anyway, a great appointment overall and I'll update again when we have test results. Hope everyone is doing well:)

May cough culture results and family vacation

The results of the cough culture from May were good. She only grew one thing that wasn't normal, and it was a type of influenza... not a good thing of course, but not a major concern and they are not going to treat for it unless she starts showing symptoms, which... so far so good. In the meantime, we took a vacation to St. Louis! I will post pics and video as soon as we get them off Aaron's phone:) The battery died in the camera, and my phone took a swim in the toilet... so all the vacation stuff in on his phone. Jackson had a blast! We went to Meremac Caverns, we took a boat ride on the Meremac river... Jackson loved feeding the fish, the water was soooooo clear you could see them swim up to eat... and we went to the Arch, all the way to the top. However, when we asked Jackson what his favorite part was, he said "swimming with you mommy." The hotel pool was the first "real" pool he had ever been in and he LOVED it... he is definitely hooked. We could have not done anything but stay at the hotel and swim and he would have been happy. We stayed at the Mariott at Union Station ( LOVE priceline.come!) and it was great! We had everything we needed rigth there. We didn't even get to do everything we wanted to do, so I think we will definitely be going back... we did go see the Cards play too... but we made it through a 1/2 bag of popcorn, a hotdog dropped on the ground (Jackson dropped it, Aaron ate it!) and one inning before we finally gave in to the cries to go back.... maybe we'll try that again when the kiddos are a little older. Jackson has an ENT follow up this week and Ashton's next appointment is the 17th... so we'll see how that goes... we are praying for vitamin levels to be normal. She also had 6 month shots last week. She did great, is doing great on weight and jumped a line in length on the growth chart! So, yay!
