SO much better

I'm so sorry for leaving everyone hanging today! I know this is a super late post! Reagan woke up this morning feeling better (she slept in her chair again). At first we weren't 100% certain that the nausea was gone because she was still a little spitty and coughy here and there, but I think it was just that her throat hurt from all of the crying and throwing up! Poor thing! She did finally give us some laughs, so we knew we were in the clear! As the day went on, she got more and more smiley! She was very laid back (quite the opposite from the last several days) and calm. We finally gave her a bath, it had been nearly a week (but when she's miserable like that, there's no opportunity of doing a bath), but after getting all cleaned up she proceeded to have FIVE (that's right FIVE) dirty diapers! It may be a new record! The first we actually had to help her a little, but the other four came on their own and more and more liquidy! I think it's all from the pedialyte, but who knows! She definitely needed a cleaning out, so I'm glad she got that all out of her system (that could have been part of what was making her so nauseous)! Anywho...SO glad to have our girl back! She was sweet and bright eyed and cuddly tonight and we just snuggled and snuggled! She was a little hesitant to go to sleep...still very laughy (so I gave her a dose of clonidine). That did NOT do the trick and if anything, it made her a little more goofy! I gave her a dose of Lortab and eventually she did drift off to sleep in hew own bed! Sweet dreams my sweet girl!
