"We've been burned twice before..."

Surprisingly, it almost slipped my mind that we had an appointment at Primary's today. I can't even begin to explain how nice it is to not have to count down days and hours till our next appointment so I can see the x-ray and know that we made through another trial period. SIGH.

Today went great. Jack was so cooperative with radiology and sat there chatting with them as they held his arms above his head during his x-ray. It was glorious. Beautiful blacks and whites and no gray pleural effusions.

Dr. Su said everything looks perfect and Dr. Jou said he looks like a million bucks. Nevertheless, we only docked down his aldactone by a dose. We are keeping him on Lasix because as Dr. Su said, "we've been burned twice before" when we took him off Lasix. So we are playing it safe. The diuretics aren't affecting him negatively so I am fine leaving him on them for awhile. Granted- they aren't super helpful during potty training, but oh well. I'll take a puddle on the floor over a pleural effusion any day.

So YAY for that.

For those wondering how our little escape to Vegas was, it was wonderful. It was weird to not have to worry about where we were going to eat, how long we were going to swim, when we needed to get to bed... it was awesome. Josh and I left the hotel maybe twice. We spent alot of time sitting at the pool, uninterrupted and it was spectacular. We ate yummy food and I played around with my rental lens. We had a blast. Can't wait to go back. (hee hee, some of you laugh with me..)

Thanks to my mom, again, for taking Jack. And thanks to Jack, for letting us go.

Lisa, I love all of your bright photos! I envision a room in our basement that I can decorate with lots of bright accent colors and I would love to feature some of your great shots in the room! Just be prepared one day when I ask to make a gallery wall of fun photos. Do you use actions on them? I wish we had photoshop!

When is your Jackson vacation planned? We have some limits to our schedules, but maybe we can make this work or at least meet up in Yellowstone!

It's always nice to get away from it all! I'm glad you two had a chance to hang out in Vegas - even if it was just for three days. What fun. Glad Jack is doing well!
