How’s it going? Pretty good here, I guess. Henry is ok from his thing yesterday, we took him in to his doctor and they said he just holds his breath is all. Also they say it’s nothing to worry about. I’m not sure how they think that’s supposed to happen. We’re just supposed to take …

Henry Takes A Hearing Test

As you may or may not know, when we were still in the hospital Henry failed his hearing test in one ear. We had to get him re-tested because there was a good possibility that there was water in his ear or the test equipment was faulty or something. So today was the day we …

Exergen Temporal Scanner Thermometer, A Review

Eliza is sick today and we had to take her temperature. We busted out the old digital oral thermometer we use under her armpit and tried to use it. First of all, she hates getting her temp taken. It’s like the worst thing you can do to her, to hold a little plastic thing in …

Sorry About That, Henry

Oh Hey, Henry. Your mom and I just watched a video showing a circumcision and it was horrible. They did that to you just after you were born. I knew it wouldn’t be real pleasant to watch but I just had no idea as to how bad it would be. So I just wanted to …

Her Head Won’t Fit Through The Door

Check out Eliza trying to get through the door. She totally couldn’t on account of her big head. It doesn’t look as big to us as it says it is on all the charts. You see, according to doctors, Eliza has no equals when it comes to head circumference. She’s in the 100th percentile, as …

The Results Are In


The results are in for Eliza’s MRI. There is some extra axial fluid causing her head to embiggen, but they say that’s nothing to worry about. Other than that she’s fine. Quite a relief! I haven’t had too much time to look into what extra axial fluid on the brain of a baby does but …

Safe and Sound and Awaiting Results


Well we made it home from the MRI with Eliza having no ill effects from her sedation. We were holding her hands while they gave her knock out gas through a mask. It was weird seeing her go from wriggling around fussy baby to unconscious baby. The thing took about 45 minutes and they called …

Eliza’s Brain Is Too Big


Eliza went to the doctor today and they said her head is too big. They are making us take her in for an MRI at some point in the near future to see if she’s okay. I’m pretty sure there’s nothing wrong with her other than having a big head to hold in her big …

Wearing Scrubs To Work

Do you ever see nurses or doctors or whoever walking around in their scrubs outside of a doctor office/hospital setting? I do. I always wonder about that. You see, I thought the purpose of scrubs was to be clean, non-street clothes for use while doing medical procedures. But these days you see ‘em all over. …

Eliza Has A Problem

Eliza developed her first ailment yesterday and I can’t help but feel at least partly responsible. You see, Little Baby Eliza is afflicted with a case of constipation. It’s terrible, she is so uncomfortable from it. She strains and strains to get her doody out but it hardly moves. When it does it is hard …
