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!!!
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.
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.
