Well, Piper does have parasites. She has a double whammy, giardia, and some other one I can't remember. And now the boys are being checked because they have had major bathroom issues for a few days now. The only way these can be transferred to them, is a fecal-oral thing. Well, I wash my hands after changing her diaper, and I don't have it, so it came down to one culprit...the Diaper Champ. Someone is always flipping it back and forth or leaning on it or something disgusting like that. So it is gone. All dirty diapers go outside to the trash there. It is a headache, but this parasite thing and stool-sampling fun is waaaayy more of a headache. I have one boy done, and another sample to go...it never ends!
On a scarier note, they ordered an ultrasound on Piper's liver for first thing tomorrow morning at Dell's new children's hospital in Austin. The words "childrens' hospital" scares me to death. Not one good picture comes to mind. She also has been scheduled an appointment with a GI doctor in a few weeks, too. I think they specialize in liver stuff. She also has to have more blood drawn next week. I really hope that her blood levels are all parasite related. Any other option is not good. It is really frustrating that everything takes so much time. Waiting on results, labwork, appointments that seem so far out. Patience is a virtue that I have never really achieved.
