3 months...

Well, I am a few days late on the three month post but things have been hectic. Chayse had a another bout of the fever issues so we have been back to the doctors office again, and again, and again. FINALLY, today, they sent us out to have some test done and have said that she IS NOT teething after all! Her latest fevers are too high to be teething. Anyhow, it will be several days before all of the cultures are done growing but so far, we do know she has an infection somewhere in her tiny body. That said, she is on antibiotics for the first time. Today Chayse had lots of firsts.... first needle in her arm, first time in an X-Ray room/machine, first time having a catheter (which she hated!) but at least we are going in the right direction! I counted today and not counting the three days when she was born and saw doctors in the nursery, Chayse has had 11 doctor visits and she is not even 14 weeks old! But like I said, at least now we are moving in the right direction!

Chaye is growing like a weed, sick and all! She is 13 pounds now and has rolled over twice from her front to her back. I am still not sure she really understands what she is doing, let alone how she is doing it but, she does it! She is quite the jabber jaws when she wants to be! It is TOOOO funny riding in the car with her because she just talks away! The handle bar to her carrier has a cow and a pig attached to it... they are the little Velcro ones that you use on ankles and hands of infants... Anyhow, she is very partial to Mr. Moo (the cow). She knows that the pink pig is there as well but the cow is her main man. She just cracks me up with her endless chatter talking to him. I never hear him talk back but he must because she just loves him! I guess there could be worse things than my baby being in love with Mr. Moo!

Hope you get her results back soon so she can get well and over these fevers. Can't wait to see her again.

I LOVE the pics! I kept saying''oh that's my favorite' and then I would see another I liked. I really like the ones of her sleeping. I hope you(we!) find out what's up with the little pumpkin. I can't stand the thought of her being ill. Post something as soon as you get any news...I will be checking in on you.

Our daughter had reflux to the kidneys and that presents with a fever. Sometime doctors will think it is an ear infection but my doctor picked up on it right away. She took a small dose of an antibotic for two years but never had another infection. She out grew this condition.

Christy, just wanted to let you know I'm keeping up with Chayse through the website. I can't wait to see her. I was out of town last Sunday but am looking forward to seeing you real soon. I loved the three month slideshow. She is certainly an angel. God Is Great.
