finally


I have so much to catch you up on! I know you are all wondering about Miss Davy, so I will start with her. Three weeks after surgery and Davy was still crying ALL the time. Even the long walks were not working. I was beginning to think that maybe there was something more going on with her. So we took her to our pediatrician and sure enough, massive double ear infection and teething. At this point the news was a relief. I didn't want it to be her surgery making her feel this way for this long. I kept thinking about how many more surgeries we still have to do and that I would like to put them off for as LONG as possible.
But I am happy to report that she is finally back to her old self. I kinda forgot what she was like pre-surgery. Was she always crying and needing to be held? Did she ever sleep? I really could not remember. Welp she is sleeping, smiling and snorting again. It is so good to have her back. But that turkey still loves to be held all the time.

Poor darling girl! My little one has never had an ear infection but I've heard how terrible they are. So glad she is feeling better!

It's so hard when kids are sick - at least it's temporary right! My son didn't start getting ear infections until he was 14 months.. I can't imagine what it would have been like to have him get them younger. She's one tough little girl. Glad she's feeling better - I figured something was up when you weren't blogging.

I had a baby that always wanted to be held. He's seven now and still wants to be on my lap or next to me whenever possible. Some kids are like that. (Did your dr. give you numbing drops for her ears? Those are absolute life-savers!)

Melinda said...

So glad to see an update and I'm glad Davy is feeling better! My son had double ear infections once and on top of that he had some fluid in his lungs so he had to do a bunch of treatments with him, so I can relate to how hard that is! She is so gorgeous, SO gorgeous!

I. Love. Her. So so glad she's sleeping at least! Babies who like to party at night are not friends of mine. Can't wait for the next update. We pray for you guys and that sweet lil' bird every day. (even tho we're strangers. Hey, I have 6 kids and if you add up me and my hubsters, plus all of my hoodlum's prayers, that's lots of prayin' going on for you) ♥
