Weeeeellllllll - I've got a lot to recap for you.
First, and focused on me - I went to the dentist last week for the first time in a year and half. I was expecting to have my lower back left molar worked on, you know, since I'M MISSING PART OF IT. Turns out, I had much more pressing dental issues. There was a possibility I was going to have to have TWO root canals. Plus two crowns. Yikes. I hate going to the dentist. Well, luckily, when she got in there and was taking out the decay, she didn't actually have to go into the root cavity, so she didn't have to do a canal - but I did, obviously, have to have the crowns. So now I've got temporary crowns and my jaw still hurts like a sonuvabish. I go back on Friday to have the permanent crowns put on and have my cleaning. Gah. AND I maxed out my yearly allowance for dental coverage. In one visit. So when I have my back left molar fixed, that's going to come out of our pocket. Sweet.
Meanwhile, and on a much more positive note, we leave for MI next week and I'm so effin excited! I'm going to see my BFF KJ and my cousins and my sisters and some of Chad's family as well.
Also, Wylie is walking all around the living room hanging onto the furniture and is getting so excited to try and stand all on his own. I'm going with a friend on Thursday to the outlets to buy him some shoes from the StrideRight outlet. Also, this morning, he followed me up the four stairs from the family room into the kitchen! I was getting the trash ready to take out and I heard him making some noise, so I turned around to look, and he had followed me up the stairs!
My birthday went well - KJ and I went out to dinner and had a cocktail then we went to see Sex and the City 2. It was such a fun night. I'm so glad that she could be here to celebrate my birthday with me.
Today, I took Wylie to see the pediatric surgeon. Since the CCAM didn't show up on the x-rays, he's ordering a CT scan in six months and if it's present on the scan, we'll schedule the surgery then. Sigh. More waiting.
Well, I think that recaps all of the big things from the last few weeks or so.
