A Lot going through my mind right now

Well yesterday was princess's 4th birthday! We had pizza for dinner and enjoyed the day together. She wore her pretty yellow dress with her pink pearl neckalce and earings:) She was so cute! Of course! Her party will be Saturday so by Monday I should have the pics uploaded.

Today was her 4 year check up, and I went in knowing that we would need to discuss the issue of not gaining weight, and not eating very much. (princess eats MAYBE 4-5 bites of food, no matter what it is, even ice cream cake, or browines.) So anyways, the doctor said today that there are two very possible causes. One Celiac Disease, which is a gluten allergy. Second is Cystic Fibrosis. I am not very familiar with either disease, but I am very nervous and worried right now. I read Confessions of a CF husband, often. I know the possiblites and problem with CF, and it's not very encouraging. On the other hand she also failed her hearing test the three times they did it. So now we will be visiting a specialist for the Celiac, and Cystic Fibrosis, seeing a specialist for the hearing, and having several blood test done. Tommorrow will be the blood test, which won't be back for about a week, and I have not gotten a date yet for the specialist. I will update as I get more info. Please pray forprincess, this is not something that she understands, and I really haven't told her much, she is only 4. I hope and pray they can figure this out soon, and that it ends up being not so bad.
