A Quick Trip to Dallas

We headed to Dallas on Monday for Sadie's follow-up neurology appointment. I had booked a night at the Embassy Suites in Frisco, but didn't get a very good deal (I procrastinated). To our surprise, we were quoted a new rate at check-in: $75 off if we would bring in a few canned good for their can drive. NO PROBLEM! Well, not for me anyway. Greg was a little annoyed to be heading out to the grocery store at 10:30 that evening...

We headed down to the restaurant for dinner. It was soooo good. Pricey, but good. I had tilapia with jalepeno relish, garlic mashed potatoes, and grilled veggies. Greg had a beautiful salmon spinach salad. I traded my potatoes for some of his salad. I really have to trade well to get some of his food! Ben and Sadie shared mac n cheese and sweet potato fries. I could talk about food all day! Next up: pool time! Sadie was not impressed! It was very late, so we headed up for bath/bed, while the boys swam.

The neurology follow-up went well. No new recommendations, other than a detailed MRI at the age of 3. It will be another month before the chromosome mapping test results are back. Otherwise, it continues to be a watch/wait situation. We do not have to follow-up again for a year! That was some good news!

We made a trip to Central Market after the MD appt. to purchase lots of items that we do not need. I LOVE Central Market!! Ben and Sadie were very impressed with the vast array of samples. Greg and I had our fair share, too. We were all stuffed as we headed out the door...$100/10 items later. I would be broke if we had one nearby! For now, it will be a "special treat".
I have no idea why the pictures do not embed where I need them to. Melissa, help me!!!
