Reagan slept OK last night. Even with the clonidine, she was still up at 4am when I woke up. She fell back asleep and then I got up with her at 7am. She was all smiles again. Her feet were a little cold this morning and she has been a little over sensitive all day (startles easily and cried when the Wed nurse was talking to her), but she pulled through and had another good day today! I think our good days are numbered, but hopefully she can pull through with another good one tomorrow! So I've got two pieces of big news to share. HUGE pieces of news! The first...I'm pregnant! Yep! It came as a shock to me too (as we certainly weren't trying and may have never tried). I'm 7 1/2 weeks and already completely and totally nauseous (not having anything to do with the stomach flu we all had two weekends ago). Ah the joys of pregnancy! We're (obviously) very nervous, but excited at the idea of Reagan having a sibling to interact with. Normally I wouldn't reveal such news to the entire world (at only 7.5 weeks), but for obvious reasons we need lots and lots of prayers for this baby! Another piece of wonderful news I got today was that Reagan WILL be included in the EPI-743 study at Stanford. Unfortunately, they don't want to start Reagan in the study until Oct, which will put us having to do Reagan's last 13 week evaluation only 2 months before my scheduled due date. I'm hoping (because of our circumstances) they might consider letting her start a month or so earlier...but we'll just have to wait and see. We'll make it work. Period. I just want her in this study!!! So two big, huge pieces of news!!! Very exciting! Please say lots of prayers about both of these things! How great would it be if we could get Reagan feeling better before this baby is born! Imagine NO bad days!!! That would be awesome!!! Lots of prayers needed!!!
