Thankfully, Alex is finally starting to feel better. He's gone from screaming while peeing to just whimpering. The urologist seems to think his foreskin is a bit too tight at the tip, which can lead to various problems including painful urination. We've been prescribed some steroid cream* that should help stretch the skin and relieve the problem. We see her again in a month to check on his penis progress.
Have I mentioned I'm really not in love with this whole working mom thing? When I'm with Alex, I'm worried about work. When I'm at work, I'm worried about Alex. It's really a no-win situation that leaves me feeling about as laid-back as an elephant on a tightrope! My nails are bitten down to stubs and nothing holds my concentration for more than 30 seconds! But! If I use exclamation points! It sounds much! better! than! it! is!
* Every time I think about this, I can NOT stop picturing that SNL commercial for Steve Martin's All-Natural Penis Beauty Cream. That was some comedy gold.
