Today has been a pretty tough day for my girl. She slept in her chair last night, but I don't think she slept much (she was awake and moaning throughout the night). Her nurse had to give her pain meds off and on all day in an attempt to relieve her discomfort. It helped her to sleep some, but when she was awake, she was pretty miserable and moany. She's crunching in half and making this biting movement with her mouth over and over again (looks like a little vampire). She's also grinding her teeth a lot and biting down on her lower lip (with her top teeth) and then moving them back and forth over and over again. We're worried that she's going to hurt that lower lip, so in order to stop her from doing it, we try to keep a finger on her chin at all times and pull down on her chin to keep her from biting it! Needless to say, it's impossible to stop her, but at least she's getting some relief from it. We're not sure if she's doing it just because she's in pain (and that's her way of dealing with it), or if it's more nausea related. She's still doing a lot of mouth movements and she did have one random throw up today, so who knows. Tonight she's been a little more fussy/moany (and actually cried a few times, but not for long). Today is day 10 since her last real bad day (so not quite an 11 day cycle but close). Poor thing. Hoping she gets over this quickly and is feeling better soon.
