More alphabet soup!

Today we made a trip to the hospital for a few tests:

* 1 KUB (she's having some constipation issues, super fun)
* Recheck of AST/ALT/GGT (AST was elevated when they tested her adrenal function)
* IGF1 and 2 testing (like I said before, the geneticist doesn't THINK growth hormone deficiency is a real contender with her normal growth, but he says he's seen it before in kids without stunted growth and wants to rule it out for sure because of the ketotic hypoglycemia)
* GSY2 gene sequencing (genetic testing for glycogen storage disease 0)

As her reward, she chose a super cute umbrella from the hospital gift shop. Orignally she wanted to go to GameStop and buy a game, then she wanted to go to ToysRus and look for princess goodies, but once she saw the umbrella it was all over! She's wanted one for ages and I promised we would get one with her school supplies, but she couldn't wait. She also had the genius idea of using it outside to help with her light sensitivity. Isn't it adorable?!

GENIUS! I've never even thought about her using an umbrella for her light sensitivity...what an awesome idea. And of course she went and picked the cutest umbrella I've ever seen. Good job, KayTar!
