THIS is a great day!

Why, you ask?  Well, let me tell you.

First of all, this girl SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!  Gooooo Kate!!!  (Yes, capital letters and multiple exclamation points are definitely warranted.)

Second of all, Lexi's overnight diaper was DRY when she woke up.  And then she used the potty like a big girl and got M&Ms for breakfast.  I've always said this girl would have to potty train herself.  I think she's working on it.  Hallelujah!

Third of all, I went to a temple session with Melissa and Julee, which filled my emotional and spiritual tanks full-to-bursting.  I don't have a picture, but trust me, it was an awesome morning with a couple of my favorite people.  (Even if I don't use caps and !s to describe them.)

Fourth of all, the long awaited appointment with the endocrinologist happened today.  I have to admit that in the days and hours leading up to the visit, I was skeptical.  For so long it has seemed that nothing would--or possibly could--change.  But since talking to Dr. Kerr, I have hope again.  She really listened to me.  We talked about parts of my history that I didn't know were relevant.  And we have a plan.  Part of the plan is drawing new labs (isn't my blood pretty?).

And part of the plan is quitting all my crazy meds and starting from scratch.  I'm so thrilled; that's exactly what I hoped would happen.  For a long time I have wondered if the medicine cocktail was making me sicker.  Now I get to find out.  I am a little nervous about what the labs will reveal and how my body will react to prescription detox, but hopefully the process will bring the answers I have been seeking.

Having HOPE is definitely the best part of this GREAT day.
