No rest for the weary

Reagan fell asleep and I put her in bed around midnight. I got to bed by 12:30am and she was back up by 1:45am...and then up for the rest of the night. She was particularly irritable last night. She'd have long periods of crying, arching her back, and biting...it was NOT a fun night. Even though our favorite nurse came in early this morning, I wasn't able to get any sleep for a while. I had to go play tennis at 8:30am (in the heat), so it wasn't until the afternoon that I finally got some rest! Reagan, on the other hand, never slept at all today. She did however get better and better as the day went on. By this afternoon she was giving us laughs and smiles and was finally appearing to feel more like her happy self. During her bad days it's almost like she's not there. She zones out and there's really no trace of the child we know and love left. But when the bad days end, our girl is back! We miss our sweet girl and then finally she comes back to us! Oh what we would give to have her happy all the time!! It would be a dream come true! Tonight she finally started looking sleepy. Around 10pm she was OUT. I'm just hoping she stays asleep long enough for both of us to get some rest!!! Thank you for your continued prayers...
