Today was a "BAD DAY" for Kendall at the doctor

Ken has taught Kendall to put her hands on her head to show she had a "bad day". It is really quite funny and I will try to get a picture up as soon as I can. Well, today she really needed to do that and it wasn't so funny. She had a check up this afternoon and we discovered she has a few problems. First, she had her sixth ear infection since October. This means she will need tubes in her ears. We will see the ENT doctor on Thursday to find out more, but we will try to do the tubes ASAP. We want to be through with this by the time the twins arrive. The other thing that we learned was that she has a problem with her vision. She has what we think is strabismus (one of her eyes turns in). We will see the opthamologist on Monday to see what treatment we will start - probably patch therapy and possibly glasses later on. She also needed two shots (just regular vaccines - but still not fun). The good news is that the non-diary diet seems to be working great for her colon problems. Please continue to keep Kendall in your prayers. We appreciate it so much. None of this has taken away from her sweet, sweet spirit. She is still the happiest, silliest, most loving child you will meet. I thank God everyday that none of this has changed her personality - she is still my same sweet Kendall!!
