So I guess the biggest update is that we took Sprout to the hospital on the Friday before we left and were able to get her in for both an x-ray and an ultrasound. They told us they would send our pediatrician the results by this past Tuesday, but since we've been away we haven't been able to get in to go over them. I'm going to try to get an appointment for Thursday (the day after I get back with the kids) to see what's going on. My suspicion is that it is reflux because the Zantac seems to be doing the trick re. the fussy evenings and vomiting. I am SO relieved but also feel so guilty that we let her suffer for so long.
I also had my second appointment with the psychiatrist that day. She said she think I did have PPD and that she would say I have high anxiety, but not an anxiety disorder. She is referring me to another psychiatrist for individual counselling and also putting me on the list for some group therapy. My goal for the individual counselling is go to get some strategies for dealing with the anxiety. As far as the group sessions go, I said I would like to see whether it's a good fit before committing fully and she said she thought that was a good plan. I'm glad to be working some of this stuff out.
The trip to PA has been going really well so far. The Bean is having an absolute blast with the grandparents, as is Sprout. Jen went home today and we'll stay here until mid-week. We're going to miss her. I hope everything goes okay. I'm a little anxious to be without her, even though her parents are totally awesome with the kids and everything else.
I'm still working on The Bean's two and a half year update and have about a million photos from this trip that I could share, so I'm hoping to find some time to punch out a few more posts over the next couple of days.
Also, I've been reading all your blogs, but haven't commented. Apologies for that. I'll try to get back on track soon. :)
