Still looking. A quick update.

Still looking for zebras, but narrowing down the direction from which they are running at us. We are also now secretly hoping they are unicorns or at the very least, cute ponies.

Clover is now under the care of a paediatrician as well as a paediatric gastroenterologist so somewhere in all of those degrees, one would think they would find her some relief!

The new doctor has ordered a lot of different tests to see if there are not some rare, but treatable things causing Clover’s near daily distress. She is still tracking along the 25th percentile for height and weight, so while she is super tiny, that is not a worry. Her hand is actually too small to properly spin the fidget spinner Kieran bought for her. When she holds it between her thumb and finger, the edges bump into her hand so it can’t rotate.

She just spins it on her knee instead. This kid can pivot problems like a champ. She even managed to run 2 kilometres in her school cross country event. To say that I am proud seeing the twins push themselves like they are at the moment is an understatement.

Our next appointment is in four weeks just to give all the tests time to be completed and results returned.
