Our funny Princess....

So yesterday I took the Princess to the doctor for a well-check and a follow-up for her migraines. She was sitting on the table just after getting her blood-pressure taken and she said, "These socks are not working for me." I asked her why and she said "They are making my feet worse." I started laughing and the medical assistant looked at me like maybe there was something wrong with her feet that she needed to know about. I asked her what exactly the problem was and she said, "My feet are stuck in my socks." SO FUNNY!!! The medical assistant busted out laughing and she said she had to go write that one down.

The doctor was talking to us about what to do for the headaches and he told us that she needs to take Mortin and Tylenol and drink about 4 oz of Coke. She never wants to drink soda because "The bubbles are too spicy" FUNNY! Anyway he suggested then that she drink iced tea--- now both of our kids have been "prescribed" caffeine - the Princess iced tea and the little man coffee for his ADHD.

Migraines for the Princess.......

We had a scary thing happen this past weekend. The princess was hit with a sudden and very painful headache. I took her to the peds office where they told me that they weren't sure but they thought it was possible that she had meningitis or encephalitis. SCARY!! So they sent us to Primary Children's Hospital. Because Matt works as a paramedic we opted to go by ambulance, we knew we could get her there quicker and since he was at work at one of his side jobs in Salt Lake so I wouldn't have to drive there alone and worry about her in the backseat. We were really worried about her.

After a few hours of exams and observation it was decided that she likely had a migraine. She complains of headaches a couple times a week but has never had anything this bad. We will be taking her in for a follow-up with her ped next week.

I have migraines occasionally and they are horrible, I can't imagine what it was like for her. Hopefully we will be able to figure out a plan for dealing with these in the future.
