“Here we go on another jog!”
“Mommy did a little bit better. This time I decided she’d be alright on her own, so I took the opportunity to get a little napskies in. Aaah, this weather sure is nice!!!”
“Here I am working with some things in physical therapy. I’m learning how to press this big red button. When I do my toy lights up. This will teach me cause and effect. I’m hoping to get a job somewhere doing this, maybe at a bank, or a sign company? Must work on my résumé…”
“Yeah. Will someone bring me a milks?”
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
(Psalm 139:13, 14 NIV)
Nora’s cold is still lingering – going on Day 10 now. There is still lots of drainage which triggers the gags which triggers the pukes. And of course the “never ending” belly troubles. We were giving her 30 mL of prune juice before each feed, but since her cold came about, that was a guaranteed puking episode. We’ve been adding 10 mL of juice to each bottle without her noticing and I’ve also introduced her to prune baby food. Just not sure of how much is enough. We’ve been up with her for much of the night with lots of belly troubles. It’s so sad and frustrating not to be able to help her when she’s hurting. 😦 I hope and pray she outgrows these issues someday!
