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!

  4. So glad to hear that she is feeling better and you guys actually got a few hours of uninterrupted sleep. That makes such a difference, you might even start to feel human again soon :) God bless your beautiful little girls!

  5. So good to see her smiling. I think the antibiotics are tough on the tummy. Isn't yogurt supposed to be good for that? I'm not up on all the latest supplements and stuff but... I will keep praying for good sleep and healing for all of you.

  6. have you considered a baby probiotic? when our youngest was an infant he had some bad virus (rsv) and was in and out of the doc's office and then in the hospital - after all the antibiotics he sooo needed this to get his "system" working healthy again.

  7. How stinkin cute is that giggly grin?! I do hope you get to see much, much more of that happy face in the days to come Sarah. You and Shawn are some seriously awesome parents and I know you will be blessed with more giggles than your heart can hold very soon! I'll be praying for all positive appointments in the week ahead and well rested girls traveling to them all. :)
