Never a dull moment

Why? Why can't I have a dull moment? I am so hoping for a day with no drama. After bringing Andrew home, I was truly hoping for at least a few weeks without the drama.

Andrew is not gaining any weight. He is 18.5 lbs at 22 months...same as he was at 17 months when we brought him home. The doctor is very concerned. He is testing him for Celiac Disease and Cystic Fibrosis. He is so active it is hard to imagine that he is a sick child, but the doctor was clear that there are only a few things that cause failure to thrive....and since he eats all day long, he is worried that it is due to a serious disorder. I asked if it was possible it was a parasite- and he said no. I said "Is it something more serious?". He said "yes". So, now we wait for the test results.

No, never a dull moment.
