Unremarkable. Thank you, Lord!
The only thing it did show was "inflammation of mucosal tissues."
"Like a sinus infection?" I asked the neurologist's nurse.
"Yes, or a cold," she replied.
Flashback to October 1st and October 15th:
"Could this be a sinus infection?" I asked our pediatrician.
"Ugh, no," she disdainfully replied, on both occasions. What did I know? I'm only her mother. (And both the neurologist and the optometrist suggested sinus infection as the cause of her pain as well. Jenn, I'm taking your advice, and finding a new doc.)

A $10 bottle of amoxicillin. I cannot tell you how relieved we all are. I'll keep you posted on how things are going.
Our country's amazing freedoms:
I voted today, and my Monkeys all witnessed their mother, as well as other fellow citizens, performing their civic duties.
This beautiful autumn weather, which we enjoyed at a local park:
My new-found love -- a moby wrap:
Ooohhh, don't get me started! I'll save my praises and discoveries about these wraps for another post, but just let me say that this is a BACK AND SHOULDER SAVER! (Jenn, I saw that you use one, too!)
This is just icing on the already so-sweet-cake.
(Monkey 7 is a wee bit on the OCD side, and every time a leaf fell and landed on our blanket, he had to jump up and remove it. The blanket must remain leaf-free.)
And friends like you:
I cannot tell you how much your comments and emails have meant to me. Your support, prayers and advice has buoyed my spirits, and strengthened my resolve. I know that I can get through this. It's just a bit easier knowing that there are friends like you out there. I know that I am not alone in this. Thank you.
