As far as Dani goes, we still really don't know what is going on. The doctor doesn't think she is diabetic (we go to the best in town. She's not one to rush into meds and wants to be sure of the problem before going on) but she can't fully discredit it either. Dani is small for her age and has damn near zero fat. She that could be the problem or, also due to the zero fat, her body may have a problem metabolizing fatty acids. We are continuing testing her blood sugar and now have moved to urine tests when we get certain readings. We are looking for keytones. I don't know what they are exactly but sarah tells me it has to do with sugar. If they are there that means her body doesn't properly know what to do with the sugar so it is dumping it. If they aren't there, then what exactly is causing her sugar to be low? This is what we are looking at. Of course, when we were there, normal sugar lol. Always that way.

As far as her bum goes, the doc saw a small mark, but nothing like last time. We have to monitor that also and if blood still continues to be present, she'll have to be scoped to check for internal problems.

Ya know, all I want is for one year this child to have a normal year. No unexpected doctor vists. No surgeries. No blood testing. Poor thing, but damn she's a strong one. Doesn't cry when her clood gets drawn. Doesn't even flinch. She's used to it already. She's four fucking years old and used to it. *sigh* She's really a trooper.

From me to you

The first six people to respond to this post will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- What I create will be personalized and intended for you.

- It’ll be done this year (2009).

- You will have no idea what it’s going to be. It may be a poem, a story or article collection, a food item, an herbal mix or tea or incense, a recipe collection, a piece of jewelry, or anything in between! Who knows? Not you, that’s for sure!

The catch? You have to put this offer in your journal or blog as well, and make six things for your friends!

Let’s have some fun!
