Odd/tense day

Reagan slept OK last night. She's had an odd sort of day today. In the morning she seemed OK. It seemed like maybe she was turning things around and headed in the right direction. She didn't seem quite as sensitive as previous days. But as the day went on, she was more and more sensitive. She wanted to be held a lot and when her nurse would put her down or walk away from her chair, she'd get upset. She was crazy into her hand again, and really needed it held at all times (because it seemed she was going to aggresively bite down on it). Her nurse held off all day and managed to get by without any medication, but you could tell she was on the verge of a meltdown all day. As the night went on, it was obvious we were going to have to give her something. I gave her a dose of oxycodone and it had a reciprical effect on her! She definitely got worse! We've noticed that a lot of times, it will make her worse before it makes her better, but not tonight! Just worse! Ugh. I spent the whole night with her upstairs away from her brother and Daddy (who's voice seemed to be setting her off again). Poor girl. I really want her to sleep tonight, but it doesn't look good. Please keep her in your prayers!
This was one of her few calm moments tonight! Such a sweetheart!
