So before it gets too far away from me, I wanted to update on some other things.
But first, we heard back from ACH on Monday regarding the cultures Reed had done on Friday. Apparently, they showed that his incision had a yeast infection. I asked the nurse what caused that and she said she didn’t know but that the pathologist had said it was “weird”. Well, okay then. They called in an oral prescription that he only had to take three doses of, along with a topical cream that he has to have for a week. We won’t know for a while still if the cyst is truly gone.
So to recap quickly in photos:
Zach and I had an afternoon/early evening to ourselves to attend the wedding of his co-worker’s daughter! Any time we can get out by ourselves is fun. The kids LOVED their time with their baby sitter and we had a great time!
We are attending an American Girl House party this weekend, and since Ava doesn’t have one of her own yet (though that will change at Christmas!), we borrowed Aunt Stephanie’s old ones to take to the party. Ava was in heaven and hasn’t stopped playing with them!
My precious friend Amanda is so super talented, and I’ve been wanting her to teach me how to make deco mesh wreaths. Last week was crazy, and she came over on one of the hardest days b/c of Reed, armed with a bottle of wine and that girl time was just what I needed!
Last Thursday, Ava got to go home with Zach’s parents and spend a few days with them. We headed to get her on Saturday. On the way up, I looked back and couldn’t see Reed b/c his book was so big it was covering him!
And FINALLY! Monday was the anniversary of mine and Zach’s first date. That was 8 years ago. I went into it being somewhat skeptical just because we hadn’t been compatible when we first met, but I was so pleasantly surprised by how well we hit it off that night. I’m so thankful I went and even more thankful he wanted me to be his wife!
Whew! I need to keep up better so that I don’t have these long posts trying to squeeze in all the memories I want to remember!!!
