Bad days are back...

Reagan had a bit of a restless night. She fell asleep late but then woke again and was very fussy. I picked her up and sat up with her for a while. She was in this weird half awake-half asleep state. She kept tensing up her arms and moving her head back and forth (definitely some neurological stuff going on) all the while keeping her eyes mostly closed. She was very tense and not at all comfortable. It took a while but she finally let go and became calm and still...that's when I knew I could finally lay her back down. She still woke a few times, fussed and flailed a little, then went back to sleep. She woke this morning in a decent mood. Not super happy, but OK. She had speech and vision therapy and was a good girl for both. Then this afternoon she had a big meltdown. She started freaking out while having her diaper changed and then just went ballistic for a while. Lots of tears and screaming. She finally calmed down and fell asleep for a bit and then woke a little calmer. Her tummy has had quite a bit of air and drainage over the last couple days and today we drained off some yellow bile as well. No throw ups, but she did have a little gagging that sure sounded like she was going to throw up. She also had a big dirty diaper this morning and that may have caused some tummy discomfort as well. Then this afternoon she had another big meltdown, cried for a while and fell back to sleep. She woke and was OK for a little while, but that quickly changed and then she pretty much cried nonstop the rest of the night. She also bit her left middle finger so hard that she broke the skin on the top and the bottom (and severely bruised it)! I actually had to pull it out of her mouth because she was clenched down on it! Not good, not good. So needless to say...she wore a restraint for the rest of the night. This is definitely a full fledged bad day...and it sucks. I hate that she has to go through this! It's been a rough afternoon and sleep tonight doesn't look good...neither does our entire weekend. Please keep her in your prayers!
