Congratulations, Emma! You win...

...more blood work.

Emma sported another high fever on Wednesday into Thursday. So, of the last five weeks, including this week, she has had only one week of wellness. Three with high fevers and one with the knee thing. In between her energy level is lower than usual.

So we're trying to figure out if she has just had a run of very bad luck, catching viruses left and right, or if they're somehow connected. They're running the same tests as before, to compare, as well as a few others. We went to a different lab and it was the polar opposite of our experience before. They took us back before the front desk person had finished copying our insurance card and we were out of there lickety-split. No blood trails left behind.

We finally found an orthodontist in the area that seems super nice and doens't require half up front. That's always a good thing. So now we can get started on Hope's second round of braces (the first round was for an underbite in third grade). I wonder if they give a family discount, as Clara and Emma seem like they're going to be needing them, too.

Man! Poor Emma! I hope that this is all just a big nasty virus that doesn't want to give up, and that the blood tests are absolutely normal. Also, hope she's feeling better today, and this is the last she sees of it.

Hooray on a professional lab, too. Don't you love it when a place has their stuff together?

And hooray on the orthodontist. We should probably start saving up now, as there's no doubt that J will need them when he gets older.

Poor girl. I hope they figure every thing out soon. Summer will suck if she feels like crud 3/4 of the time.

Gosh, poor Emma. Hope they figure out what's up and get her on the mend soon!
