Our girl is sick again. I knew something was up with the way she had been acting. I took her to the pediatrician last week and she had a slight temp but nothing else they could see. Well, she is now congested and coughing. She coughs a lot more at night and that makes for horrible sleep for her. She also refused to nap today and was an all-around crab fest. I had to take a mommy time out and put her in her crib with some toys for 20 minutes so I could take a shower and relax. Entertaining a sick child who doesn't want to nap is exhausting. It's times like these that I miss Stephen the most. If he was here we would tag team her and we would both get some "me" time and recharge our batteries. I know I'm not the best mom when I'm doing it alone. Also, she has been not napping great for over a month now. She will fall asleep and then wake up 30-45 minutes later screaming her head off and arching backwards. Nothing but a bottle calms her. Which makes me think reflux. But, if it's reflux, wouldn't she be doing the same thing at night? Also, I had her fall asleep on my chest while sitting in a chair and she did the same thing about 15 minutes into falling asleep. Again, if she is on an incline, wouldn't that keep her reflux under control? I mean, the girl is on 2 adult doses of Prevacid a day and a thickener for her milk, certainly her reflux has to be under control?? What is next?! Gar. Anyway, a visit to her GI doctor is scheduled this Wednesday. Let's hope she's well enough to get to it. I don't want to miss this appointment. My sanity and her nap time depends on it.
