Waiting

As if to send us all completely over the edge, our fire alarm system decided to malfunction with unnecessarily shrill decibels and flashing strobes at 4:42 this morning. As Gavin so aptly put it, “So much for going back to sleep… ever again!!!” That’s just not a nice way to wake up at all.

Nora’s heart rate did go down throughout the night but it was back up in the 190s this morning and she was very fussy. It was such a relief to have it go back down again as the afternoon progressed; and she was in great spirits this evening. Her sweet squeals were such music to my ears!! She’s been back on the soy formula all day today with very minimal pukies but several gassy belly episodes. :/

Nora has an appointment with the pediatrician Tuesday morning just to make sure there isn’t something else going on that might be causing the cardiac issues.

We are incredibly thankful for your prayers! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

  1. WOW, NO WONDER NORA’S HEART RATE WENT UP AGAIN, BET ALL OF YOUR HEART RATES WENT UP WITH THE FIRE ALARM GOING OFF. THANK GOD THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG. I LOVE THE PICTURES YOU POST WITH GRETA READING TO NORA. NORA LOOKS LIKE SHE REALLY LISTENS TO GRETA READING. HEY GRETA, I THINK THE HAT MIGHT BE A WEE BIT SMALL. HA! HA! (JUST KIDDING YOU SWEETIE). IT SEEMS LIKE NORA’S HAIR DECIDED TO JUST TAKE OFF ALL AT ONCE AND START GROWING, IT IS GETTING LONG. WELL THIS TIME I REALLY AM GOING TO BED. LOVE YOU ALL. GOOOOD NIGHT AND GOD BLESS.

  2. Omg, what a night !!.
    Ok, let’s wait and see with Nornor…. Sometimes finding out the cause is not immediate and requires ruling out all the possibilities…. Any tooth coming out that makes her being uncomfortable?. Was she on rice cereal when she had her first tachy episode ?. Vaccine reaction ? ( it’s uncommon but possible).
    Keep on praying. Hope you get a good sleep tonight. Muuuaaahhh
    P.S.: Greta’s smile brightened my day. What a blessing she is !! 🙂

  3. what about neocate? it’s prescription only, but it’s predigested, and the amino acids are already broken down. my son was on regular formula, and switched to nutramigin, and when that didn’t work we switched to neocate. way less tummy troubles! (different medical reasons i’m sure, but still gentler!)

  4. Ahh…. needed that scripture about now. Thanks for sharing. Take a little sun-baff today to make up for the lack of sleep!! 😉
