Friday Update

It's been one week since we started cloth diapering. So far, I'm loving it. I've kept up with laundry, gained a little more confidence, and am completely satisfied with what it's done for Miss A. Her bottom looks a million times better than this time last week. She's diaper rash free. It makes me so happy. One thing that I've figured out that works nicely is this:

Rather than buying a drying rack and trying to find a place to put it, I came up with this system. I hang up the diapers to dry in Adalin's bathroom by using the clip coat hangers. I attach them to the corner of the diaper, with as little fabric as possible. It works great, and is a nice alternative to having to buy and store a drying rack in a house that just doesn't have room. 

On another note, Miss A woke us up at 2AM with a fever of 104+ degrees. We took her to the emergency room, and as suspected... another ear infection. My heart completely sank. They put her on yet another round of antibiotics and sent us to pediatrics later in the morning. Peds couldn't do anything for us to bump up her tubes surgery, so I went to ENT. After an hour of waiting, I was informed that they declined my request to be sent off post so we could get it done sooner. After filing a request with Patient Advocate, and an long afternoon, the commander of Winn ACH approved our request. We will be going off post to a pediatric ENT specialist about an hour away, and she will be having surgery next week as long as all goes as planned. She was originally scheduled for January 21st at Winn, so I'm thrilled to have it bumped up sooner. I'm ready to get my poor babe some relief. We won't find out what's going on for sure until Monday or Tuesday, but hopefully we'll get this all squared away before we go to MI for Christmas. 

I'm off to go process some photos now. I've got another busy weekend ahead of me.
