All three of us are sick. I am taking antibiotics though, so I've been feeling much better. I went to a doc in the box Wednesday night and said I thought I had a sinus infection. The doctor agreed, and then offered me a choice of like five antibiotics. Um, since when do doctors let the patient pick out which drugs they want? Isn't that part of his job? Yeah. I don't know what I got, but it's making me feel better. Justin thinks he just has another cold and doesn't want to take anything. Roxanne has had a cold for as long as me, which has been for like a month... But today she was running a fever, so I'm going to try and get her into the doctor tomorrow. It's always tough getting in there on a Saturday morning, especially trying to get through on the phone line, but I'm just so happy that they are open on Saturdays that I will call a few times and not mind the busy signal.

Roxanne had a visit with a Pediatric GI specialist on Thursday morning. It seemed to go pretty well, and we are relieved to find out that she doesn't have anything physiologically wrong. She just hates pooping. And now she has such a back-up, she basically is getting painful urges constantly. So we have to try and figure out a way to get obscene amounts of Miralax into her system. Three capfuls a day! Wow. But it should take care of the problem, and we can slowly wean her down to a smaller dose over the coming months. We are just relieved to have some answers. Especially since he told Justin that the Benefiber we've been giving her is actually making the problem worse. Oh well.

Oh, and as Jim reminded me in my comment, I did in fact submit my graduate school application. I made it extremely hard on myself, and cut it down to the wire, but I did it. It's in. Phew! Now I'm planning to get back to work on the house projects. My to-do list is endless... We also bought an elliptical for the house, and I've been really really enjoying it. Justin plans to try it this weekend for the first time. It fits so well in our basement, and really helps me with stress (and hopefully some weight loss...). We hope everyone is doing well!
