Drinking Again!

I don't want to jinx things here. She finally started drinking yesterday. She actually drank a whole bottle of water. She ate a 1/2 of cheeseburger from Mc.Don.alds. as well. She **might** be doing better.

Thanks for all the well wishes. To the anon who posted about her child, thank you. It made me feel better to know that she was doing "normal" things for a child with sensory stuff.

Another problem we have now is pooping, actually lack of. The meds have really made it hard on her & with her CP, she has only pooped twice (tmi here- tiny little rabbit turds) with suppositories in the last 10 days. I will have to give her another this morning :-P If things don't get moving, I will have to take her to our pediatrician. I hope all the water she drank will get in there & help.

We are quiet because her recovery has been very, very, very difficult. I will update when I can. She is a not drinking, not eating, not pooping, too much pain medicine needed, not talking mess. My heart is breaking for her! The autism makes this a million times harder. She cant tell you she's hurting, so she hurts herself or hit me. Please pray. Thanks.

Monday Movies & on the Mend

I am starting to feel semi-human again. This time was much more painful than the last, I guess cause I had a septal repair as well. I am doing okay. Taking less pain meds each day, psyching myself up for MM's surgery on Thursday & the hospital stay.

I have been able to upload a few videos that I had promised.

First up, the loose tooth. Please excuse the cinnamon roll all over her face!

Up next, the Lost Tooth

That little voice she does where she says "I lost a tooth" is one of her scripted voices.

Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for all the well wishes & warm thoughts. I will be back when I can and am not so cracked out on vicoden!

First Up Tomorrow

Well, it is with much dread that I am on deck for tomorrow.

I am sure I will be MIA for a few days.

I am not looking forward to this at all. I am trying to be brave for MM. I am trying to be positive & optimistic for myself.

Please send me vibes/prayers, whatever you do. I am not so much worried about the surgery as I am getting infected like last time. Although, the pain & burning that happens isn't too appealing either!

And yes, I still need to get around to posting about the IEP. BLAH!

Tooth Fairy

Well, she lost that loose tooth on Tuesday. I was working. DH handled it like a pro. It came out just before bedtime while they were brushing her teeth. He told her the toothfairy was already booked up for the night so I could participate.

She made a special envelope yesterday & we put the tooth in it.

I got to be the tooth fairy last night. I printed off a special letter & put her money in a box.

Yes, we did give her $10 cause for some reason that is what she kept saying she would get. It IS her first tooth! Next tooth will be less. What is the going rate for teeth these days?

I am proud & sad all in one. She's growing up too fast!
