That could describe any one of us lately. No one is getting any sleep. Reagan is still waking up crying many times each night. Mike has a hard time getting back to sleep after she wakes him. Not me...I am out as soon as I hit the pillow but if Reagan so much as makes a peep, I leap up out of bed, up the stairs, and into her room. So we're all exhausted. We're all quite miserable. Tonight even more so. Reagan screamed and cried for a good 2+hrs before we could get her in bed. She's definitely not feeling well. She had three dirty diapers today and another throwing up incident tonight. It's got to be some sort of stomach virus (although she was not irritable at all with the last stomach virus she had). Unfortunately there's not much we can do for that. Just try to keep enough fluids in her (which today she was definitely lacking) and hope that her stomach settles soon. And if that wasn't enough, we're a little concerned about her eye...the one that was operated on last Tuesday. Under her iris it's very red and looks like it has a gauge out of it. I don't know if maybe a stitch has popped out or what but it doesn't look good. I spoke to the doctor on call this afternoon and we're going to take her in tomorrow to have someone look at it (as it's hard to explain over the phone). Hopefully it's nothing...but it does look painful and could be adding to her overall irritability this past week. I know the lack of sleep has definitely added to my irritability. Please keep Reagan in your prayers. We really need her to start feeling better soon. I don't know how many more sleepless nights we are going to survive.
