Monday was another rough day of increased heart rates and gas pains. This was a continuation of a completely sleepless Sunday night. Those are the nights that I am incredibly thankful for the night nursing!! Amy came back again the next night – so at least Nora didn’t run her off!
Nornor did great through the night and by Tuesday morning she was looking and acting much better. We felt very comfortable canceling her morning appointment with the pediatrician and rescheduling later in the afternoon if need be. So thankful that need never came to be. She only improved!
She didn’t appreciate being left in the living room while everyone was in the kitchen!!
“I’m a big kid now too!”
“It’s exhausting being a big kid!! I guess I’ll just sleep in the kitchen here!”
I was invited to a breakfast up at the kids’ school that I was thrilled to be able to go to. Nana (my Mom) came to stay with Norns while I was away.
I got back just in time for a session with Nora’s nutritionist and speech therapist. Prunes were the Special of the Day! Nora showed off for them again.
“Oh deez are delishisss!! Look at me! I’m a professional prune eater!”
“Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom…
“All that prune eating got me tuckered out! My Mom’s got me.”
“It felt so good to get a baff after my nap!”
“Eenen’ Mommy took me on a jog to the mailbox and back. Dat was fun! I came back and decided to be good and cute for the rest of the evening!”
I’m so relieved and thankful that Nora is recovering from her sickies. We’ve been getting intermittent smiles and squeals — Happy Baby is making a comeback!
My heart is broken for the victims of the Oklahoma tornado. Yet ANOTHER reminder how life can become so different in just the blink of an eye. Don’t take one minute for granted!
“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
(John 11:25-26 NIV)
