|Macy's Birthday cake!|
Macy's birthday party went well! We had a good time, and we were glad that everyone could make it. Macy did excellent; even skipped her nap and wasn't fussy at all. She was taking everything and everyone in. It's so weird now when we are somewhere and someone asks how old she is, and I say 1. It seems so old!

Macy has 3 appointments this week. She saw her hand surgeon on Monday. She had her 1 non-dissolvable stitch removed. He said it is looking good. The outside is completely healed now; but the inside has some hard scar tissue that he said will soften over time. It will take 6-12 months to see what kind of full range of motion she has with it. We meet with him again at the end of November, and we will talk about the surgery on her right thumb then.
Today Macy had her 1 year well child check up. She was 29 inches long, and 17 lbs. She is still small, but is gaining weight. She went from the 1 percentile to the 2.5 percentile so she is getting up there. Her length is still in the 47 percentile so that is good. She did have to get 4 shots today. 2 in her legs and 2 in her arms. I felt SOOO bad for her. She cried when they did her legs; but her arms....oh I have never heard her scream like that before. Hopefully these are the last shots for a long time.
Thursday she has her hematology/oncology appt. where she will need to get blood drawn. She will have to get blood drawn every 3-4 months for the rest of her life now. :( I would like to say maybe she will get used to it; but does one ever get used to getting poked with needles? probably not.
We have 2 more camping trips coming up this year. The fall after labor day is usually some of our favorite times to camp. It's not busy; we can get a lot on the lake or channel; and the weather is usually perfect: warm with a slight chill at night which is perfect for a camp fire. I ended up buying Macy another Halloween costume. We have 3 Halloween events this year so she is going to be a cow, and a witch! She'll be so cute! can't wait. In case I haven't mentioned this; Halloween is our favorite holiday.
Let's see...what else has been going on? We have decided to forgo a vacation now and are going to rip out our carpet and floor up stairs and down and put in wood floor. We bought all the flooring and paint (we are going to re-paint first) so that will be an interesting winter project. Should be nice when it is done though. I need to see a Urologist due to some kidney stones I passed this week (ouch!). I had a CT scan done the other night which confirmed one making it's way down; plus multiple other stones in both kidneys (fun fun). We are always so focused on Macy's health care that when something comes up with one of us we're like "what? I don't have time for this!" The last thing I want is to spend more time at the Dr.
Well I think that's it for now. Let's hope and pray Macy's bloodwork #'s come back all in the normal range still on Thursday! Here are a couple more pictures.
