After a very difficult weekend it seems that things may be calming down for Miss Abbie. We gave her Tylenol with codeine very four hours through Sunday evening, just to try to stay ahead of the pain. Sometimes it worked, sometimes (like during diaper changes) it didn’t.
She was able to go all night without an additional dose of pain meds last night, and this morning was resting comfortably while satting 100. What a blessing to not have respiratory issues to deal with right now!
She looked much, much better yesterday evening and was able to have an eye-blink conversation with me. She answered all my questions appropriately, and held her eyes closed for a good long time when I reminded her that Christmas was near and Santa would be coming to her house.
Looking back I realize I spent a good part of the weekend in shock. It was chased away by an intense migraine on Sunday morning. Ray quickly sent me to bed so I would be ready to attend the twins’ championship football game that afternoon.
I made it to the game, but felt like an alien standing in that park…not quite a part of the same world as everyone else there. By the time we were celebrating the championship win, I was woozy and the park was spinning. Kyle drove me home, and back to bed I went.
But, finding later that evening that Abbie was doing much better made me much better as well. We’ll just take this day by day until we get to “Cast Off Day 2″…I’d really never planned on making a sequel to that movie!!
Thank you so much for your prayers..we feel them. Abbie’s eyes light up and she smiles when I remind her that many people are praying for her. Thank you for not letting her be alone in this!
