The Urgent Care ruled out a UTI and sent me onto the ER for further tests. I got my cat scanned and I got the most thorough transvaginal ultrasound I've ever had. The fun part was that the pain kind of disappeared on its own sometime after about 1/2 hour at the ER. Their conclusion was that I had an ovarian cyst that was probably causing the pain. I was sent home with anti-nausea meds, some pain killers, a follow-up appointment with my OB, and the sound of the woman across the hall coughing etched in my mind forever.
I'm fine. The cyst was gone at my follow-up appointment. They're still not sure if that was the reason for the pain.
What was I talking about? Oh yeah - family photos. Pardon the tangent.
So I was in the ER when we were supposed to get family photos done on that day. We got them done 2 weeks later and they look great!
I decided to dress us a bit matchy matchy. I chose denim, chocolate brown, purple, and mustard yellow. Almost everything was easy to find, aside from a yellow cardigan for Cora. I ended up dyeing a white one she already had and it came out pretty well. I also replaced the flower details on the girls' tops with contrasting hand-crocheted flowers.
Of course Lily hid one of her shoes that morning, so we had to scramble to find another pair that would look ok. Oh and then I didn't actually think about shoes for Cora and she ended up wearing her house slippers.

Somehow Alana actually caught a few moments of all of us without the dreaded derp face. The girls were a little uncooperative, but I expected that. This is our first family photo since Lily was born. I don't think we even have any candids of all four of us.

Thanks to Alana Clark for capturing the moments in amongst the crazy!
