Settling down

Reagan was awake most (if not all) of the night last night. Mike got up a few times, in an attempt to get her back to sleep, but it didn't work. He did change out two dirty diapers (2 out of 3 she's had today). I was amazed!! He did it without even calling me in to help! I had no idea until he told me this morning! What a good daddy/husband!! Reagan has been much more mild mannered today. Less excitable, less chorea (all good things). I decided to go ahead and take her in to the pediatrician today to have her checked out...because of all of the bruises on her legs (I remember last week she had a big giant one on her elbow). She didn't think much of it, but decided to run her labs just in case. We caught the lab lady just as she was closing her door for lunch and it took me a few minutes to convince her that we couldn't just run back up there later. She got it on the first stick and even though it stopped for a few seconds when Reagan started kicking around, it started moving again and she got all the blood she needed in one stick. Whew! Tonight I met up with a group of local "mito moms" for a monthly dinner. I've been trying to go for months, but just now got up the courage to do the hour drive with Ryan. He was perfect...both there and back...why did I stress about it so much?!?! (Uh, probably because I know what he's capable of...the screaming and gagging nonstop!) Anyway, Ryan behaved himself (and Reagan slept for Daddy the whole time...after one big throw up) and I had a nice dinner getting to know some other special needs moms! Praying for a good night's sleep for my girl tonight...Lord knows she needs it!
