Tummy problems

Well, the tide has definitely turned. Reagan woke up at 5:15am crying! Don't get me wrong...I'm happy she slept that long...but we knew what waking up like this meant. Bad days. We saw signs of it yesterday but we always hope we're wrong. I got up with her at 5 and she was fussy but OK til right before 8, when started crying and had a dirty diaper that was a chore for the poor girl to get out! Afterward, instead of feeling better, she kept crying and didn't stop for over an hour! Poor girl. She's really plagued by tummy problems. Then she was OK, still fussy/whiny, but OK for another hour to hour and a half before she started crying again. Her speech therapist came and spent most of her time just trying to calm Reagan down. She did fall asleep in her lap for maybe 5-10 min but the second she tried to lay her down, that was it, she was up again and crying. She had another dirty diaper this afternoon with less crying, but still painful you could tell. She seems to be doing better in her chair with no one messing with her...although she's still very tense and stressed. She is definitely fussier when you're holding her. I think she's tired, but just can't sleep. And her tummy is obviously bothering her. We did have a stand in nurse today. She at least watched Reagan so I could do a few things around the house. Still no regular Wednesday nurse though. It's so frustrating that they can't staff ONE day! Ugh. Don't get me started. Tonight Reagan was about the same. Still tense and whiny. Around 8:30pm she dozed off in her chair and Mike was able to carry her to her bed. I'm not sure how long that will last, so I should probably try to wrap up her medicines as quickly as possible and get myself to bed as well. Please keep our miserable girl in your prayers...
