Hate to be right

Reagan slept the whole night through last night but when she woke this morning, she was NOT happy! I can't say that I'm surprised, we've seen this coming for days now, but we always hope she might skip over these bad days. She did make it a full 12 days (12 good days between her last two bad days)...not too shabby. The pattern has been 11, 12, & 12. And as far as bad days go...it hasn't been too bad. She woke up upset, but a dose of clonidine calmed her down and she fell back to sleep and slept the rest of the morning. She woke back up this afternoon and was crying (but not a screaming cry like she's in horrible pain, more of a fussy cry like she's uncomfortable). A dose of Lortab took the edge off a little. She slept a little more but then was awake for a period where she didn't even cry. She was still very tense and we were worried about her biting herself, but we managed to make it through the day without even using her arm restraints (but she did grind her teeth a few times where it sounded like she had bitten something off)!  I wonder if maybe the bowel movements she had earlier in the week have prevented her from being so miserable this go round...no idea. Tonight she was awake for a bit and even had a few little laughs, before falling to sleep on her own around 9pm. Hopefully she's able to get some rest tonight and wakes up feeling better tomorrow.
