Labs OK

20130530-113312.jpg

Some of the lab results were back last night with very normal results. Her white blood cell count is right where it’s supposed to be. We have to wait a few days for the IgG results, which hopefully, maybe, might shed some light on things! Another trisomy Mom strongly suggested getting Nora’s IgG levels tested. If the levels are low, they can be treated. It’s made a drastic difference in her daughter’s life by cutting down the frequency and severity of colds and illnesses. If Nora’s IgG levels are low that will at least explain something!! Right now our best guess is that she picked up something viral – a stomach bug… (however she ONLY pukes with feeds, no diarrhea, and no one else in the family or people she’s been around have been sick). We don’t really go out much with her even still, but that doesn’t seem to be making much difference. You’d think we were over here licking the soles of our shoes at Chuck E. Cheese and Waffle House!!!

Closest to a smile I could get from her yesterday

It’s beyond frustrating to have her so sick again so soon after her last illness. A WEEK would have been surprisingly soon – but 3 days??!! Really??!!

As aggravating as this is, at least she’s not in the hospital. At least she’s still eating and gaining weight. Things could always be so much worse.

She was in very decent spirits this morning. I even got some kissy-smiles from her before our morning run/walk.

The big kids came with us on their scooters. I didn’t get pictures for some reason!?

The second the pain reliever starts wearing off Nora is miserable. She’s puked up most of her bottles today and isn’t a very happy baby. Kinda at my wits end.

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
(Psalm 27:14 NIV)

Thank you so very, very much for all of your kind words in your comments, messages, emails and texts!!! We are beyond blessed by all of you, even you silent ones! I feel your prayers and hopefully Norns will soon.

  1. Our house got hit hard by the norovirus. The baby has it now. The puking was OUT OF CONTROL. Now it’s changed to diarrhea. Fun. Now everyone has had it, so hopefully this will be the end of it.

  2. I AGREE THE LAST PICTURE IS WONDERFUL. YOU AND NORA HAVE SUCH BEAUTIFUL SMILES. HOPEFULLY WHEN THE LAST TEST COMES BACK THE DOCTOR WILL BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING FOR NORA THAT WILL HELP HER NOT GET SICK SO OFTEN. CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR ABOUT THE LAST TEST. I WILL BE PRAYING FOR ALL OF YOU GUYS. GLAD THE NURSE COMES AT NIGHT SO YOU AND WILLIAM BOTH CAN GET SOME REST. I WILL CHECK BACK IN TOMORROW TO SEE IF YOU HAVE HEARD ANYTHING YET. LOVE AND PRAYERS TO YOU ALL. GOD BLESS.

  3. My baby (21 months) has had back to back GI and yuck bug this last week too. Ended up in the ER with high fever and asthma… I know it doesn’t help, but at least it’s not just NorNor! Hope you have some answers soon and she’s back to her squealy self before too long!

  4. I continue to pray for Nora’s comfort, some real medical answers, & that your wits don’t meet there END!!!! I can’t do without your wit! Seriously, I hate being STATES away and not at your beckon call. Just know that Nora is being prayed for where the stars at night, are big and bright…..DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS! Hang in there, Leis!!!! Lone Starlette LOVES you!
