About Us

My photo
Shawn, originally New Yorker, transported to Tennessee for a few years, chased the love of his life in Iowa, only to move her back to Tennessee. Rachael, small town Iowa girl that traveled the globe to find her love in Tennessee. Little did we know how much our lives would change when Little Miss Magdalyn Joy entered the world. Join our journey through the unknown of Maggie's medical issues, known truths of God, and the nuts and bolts of life.


Maggie couldn't have anything to eat from after midnight Thursday night until her CTA. Unfortunately, that wasn't until 3:30 in afternoon. I realize that every kid is important, but I would think a 4 mo old that is starting to lose a little bit of weight and not keeping much of anything down would be a priority to not have fasting all day compared to kids. And she needed fasting bloodwork which I kept asking the nurse to do before the CT so she could eat right away after the CT. But no, she waited till afterwards, so Mags had to go even longer. Not that it mattered much, because she threw that up.
GI did come by later in the early evening. He just asked a bunch of questions and realized as well that there aren't really any trends to it and it doesn't directly correlate with anything. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of them. One nurse mentioned lying her on her right sides for feeds since that's the way the tummy drains. Worked a couple of times, but tried it again last night and disproved us. My latest lead is placing a hand on her back and on her tummy to prompt her own healing. I had done that with the first few side lays and it worked. And then it seemed to help with these 2 feeds this morning already.
Genetics was by again to see us an
Tammy and her boys came by and stayed for a while this morning. We were able to go outside for a bit.
Heather and Travis and the kids swung by and brought us some stuff. New leg warmers are perfect! We finally got a picture with our most frequent visitors too.
Tammy also went to Trader Joe's and got some groceries for me to have stuff to eat. Not sure if elimination will work or not.
Really, we're not so sure about anything and I will try whatever I have to for my little bug, even if it means taking everything out of my diet (even though chocolate and ice cream are so tempting as therapy), or laying sideways, upside down to feed her. Anything!
