The update on Tatums' UTI ...
The Dr thinks she may have Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). She goes to the Dr on the 28th for a test: voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) . They will catheter her and insert a dye into her bladder and push it to her kidneys ... then if it backs up into the kidneys they will use the dye to determine just how bad it is. If it is slight ... (which is the most likely) they will treat it with a long term antibiotic if it is sever (not likely) they will treat it with surgery.
I will keep you posted!

:Crosses fingers:: I hope that is easily fixed so cutie pie Tatum is all better real soon.

And I think that you handled the trip beautifully. I don't think I could ever fly solo with either one of the kids without losing my mind.

Wow! I am away from blogger for a few days and I miss alot. I am so sorry to hear about Ms. Tatum. My cousin is going through the same thing with her daughter. However, they are opting not to do the dye test yet, because she has already been put to sleep 8 times due to a virus that she had in her eye that required mutiple surgeries (long story). Keep us posted on her progress! I will be praying for you guys. Have a great weekend!
