On the Mend....Take 2
We're hoping Mila is on the road to recovery!! The evening after her first antibiotic dose she slept 7 hours straight, then woke up around 3 to party with Daddy for a bit. Last night she didn't sleep so well though....fooey! She's still crying a little in her sleep and waking up a bit. But we've started seeing signs of that happy girl...you know the one we met for A DAY after returning home? Shawn and I were talking and realized we've really only seen Mila healthy and painfree ONE DAY of the entire time we've known her (and we don't even think she was completely painfree either)!!! We can't wait to see her feeling 100%...Thanks for all your sweet and encouraging comments! They mean the world to us! Please keep praying...specifically that Mila would start eating better again (not sure if the UTI is still causing her decrease in appetite or if the antibiotic is giving her a belly ache), and prayers that she would get the rest she needs! This week we have Down Syndrome Clinic appointments for both girls on Monday and then cardiology follow up in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Early Intervention Evaluation on Wednesday, and a kidney ultrasound on Thursday....are you as tired as me just reading that?
Here's a taste of what we're in for....girl is feeling a little better! (She is so happy and smiley like this when she wakes up from a nap and is well rested....the rest of the day....mehhhh....well maybe not this happy, or even a little happy....but hoping she's on the mend!
