So Reagan has been feeling a little off today. She woke up crying again and she's still very stuffy. The nose/eye wiping picked up even more today. She's got a big scratch on her forehead from it...we even had to put her arm restraint on her a few times to keep her from whacking herself. For most of the day her mood was OK, just off. A little feisty/cranky. We drove across town today to see a speech therapist that specializes in communication devices for children. It was only her first time to meet Reagan, so it's hard to get a good gauge on everything, but she basically just gave us some suggestions on things we can do with switches. She'd like to have some more sessions with Reagan, which I think would be helpful, but it's a loooooong drive so we'll see. This afternoon, like clockwork, Reagan had her late afternoon poop on me. This is a child who typically goes every 3-7 days and now she's going every afternoon at the same time...and on me! Maybe it's the way I hold her (I call it the poop position). Maybe it's the antibiotic. Who knows. Then tonight cranky turned into hysterical. She was very upset and she threw up a good amount of fluid (not sure where that come from). She just looked plain SICK and completely and totally miserable. She was running a low grade fever this afternoon. Ugh. I can't even stand the thought of her getting sick again. She CAN'T get sick again. Please say some serious prayers for this girl.
