I had my glucose test today...blech. that drink is absolutely disgusting!

Claire was pretty upset with the lady that poked me, but she decided she'd settle for saying 'owie' over and over instead of screaming. I was glad to show her that it's not only her that gets poked with needles.

When we were waiting for the doc, Claire looked up to a pic on the wall and said, "Gee-sahs?" Yeah, not even close. It was a farm house or something like that. I said to her, "No, not Jesus." She looked up at me with her big blue eyes and said, "Work?" I always tell her when she wakes up and asks for Daddy that he's at work. I love that she made the connection to Jesus. We talked about Him being with us all the time, but we can't see Him. I don't think she got it, but she will.

We took Claire off the last step of steroids on Friday. That night, she had a fever of about 103 F. Her fever has been about 101.5-103 F this whole weekend. She doesn't like to walk up/down the stairs and she has me worried sick. She will randomly tell me that something hurts (her knee, her toe, her ankle, , her finger---usually a joint) and makes me kiss it better. We called her doc this morning. I hope to hear back from her soon. She also has canker sores all over her mouth, so eating has been hard for her. She drinks a ton. I don't know if cankers could be related or not. When Nick discovered the cankers, I thought, "oh, she's just been teething! maybe this is what is causing the fever!" I'll hope for this, but I really don't know.

Wow, your poor little girl, I hope it isn't any more serious than just teething. I didn't know people still made you drink the orange stuff. My Dr told me to eat a candy bar and drink 12 ounces of soda or juice an hour before my appointment. I think I did the same thing with Benjamin. So do you think those clothes will work? I feel bad that I didn't go through the boxes before I gave them to you.

I hate the glucose test as well (I get to take mine in 4 weeks. BLech)
I wish little Claire could catch a break (mommy and daddy too.) Poor thing.
Is she allergic to juices or any food? I've not heard of canker sores as a teething thing before.
