Always something

The boys had a duo cardiologist appointment yesterday. Both the tickers are doing great and we don't have to go back for an entire year! Sounds to good to be true right? I'll answer that for you, yes. While there, dr. F pointed out the fact that Malachi looked unusually yellow and that we would get him to the pediatrician asap. We went today.

Malachis face, arms, legs, feet and the whites of his eyes are yellow. I kept telling myself this was some awful trick but it's not. Malachi is yellow. So began the hustle and bustle of the nurses trying to get all the paperwork together for the large amount of labs to be drawn. The reason for the yellow invasion? Liver disease, hepatitis b or c and a long list of works I can't say or spell for that matter. 3 sticks later and lots of vials, they finally have what they need.

Now we wait and see. My stomach is in knots, I'm worried and scared. This could be serious, very serious or it could be nothing. Can't he ever get a break? Seriously.

Where is my glass of wine?
