Definite bad day

Reagan slept last night but then woke up this morning quite fussy. She was very tense, definitely trying to bite, and just all around not a happy girl (probably not the best day to not have a nurse). She did surprisingly well for OT but when we tried to change a dirty diaper at the end of the session...she totally freaked out! She went from fussy to hysterical and she screamed/cried nonstop for 3hrs. After that, she was still fussy but it was more of a fuss/yell than a cry. She had tons of chorea today. Those legs were going nonstop and she kept kicking her mommy. Her hands and feet have been going from normal temps, to warm and sweaty, to ice cold and sweaty. She's also got that distinct bad day smell. She's been bitey all day (and did get Daddy once on the shoulder), so we've had her arm restraint on her nonstop. I noticed tonight however that she bit her right pointer finger right around the knuckle leaving a nice red mark (usually she'll only go for the left hand). What are we going to do with this girl?!?! On a good note...she fell asleep around 10pm and even made the transition from her chair to her bed still asleep. Hopefully she'll get some sleep tonight and wake in a slightly better mood tomorrow. We do have our night nurse tonight (who I love)...so I know at least we'll be getting some interrupted sleep!
