After spending 2 hours at the ER with Stella Friday night (where an hour into it she started eating and playing!) We brought her home without seeing anyone. We had at least another 3 hours to wait and it was already past her bedtime. I thought that the best thing for her at the time was a good night's sleep. She is now eating, playing, and has no fever. Finally, I can let out this breath I've been holding for 5 days!
In the midst of all of this we've created some really poor habits. Friday night she cried for an hour when I put her down (after 3 nights of sleeping with her Dad), she wouldn't nap all weekend, she "needs" her blanket, and she wants to be held ALL OF THE TIME! All of these were things that we'd already "fixed" and now have to start over. The only one that's been an issue previously was the wanting to be held. I'm not quite sure how to handle that. I can't make dinner at night because she doesn't want to be put down. It makes for some exhausting evenings (not to mention a sore back/neck/and arms). There's part of me that says just to relax and enjoy it because there's going to come a time in the not too distant future that she won't want me to hold her and I'll desperately miss it!
I've been busily working on projects, I have a lot going on right now. Luckily, on 6 MORE GET-UPS!!!! Thank goodness.
Thank you all for the sweet comments and positive thoughts for our girl - it's much appreciated!
