Another Late Night....

Well....just as I began to update this... my little lady woke up for about the 10th time since being asleep for the past 90 minutes. The past 3 nights have brought us very little rest.... with naps practically non-existant either.... Makes for very long days and nights......

Besides not sleeping, She seems to be doing better. A lot of her facial swelling has gone down. She has an appetite, and yesterday she began to smile some and even giggled a few times. She is a little more active with her brothers...but would still rather just sit on the couch and be held. Although she did allow me to cook dinner tonight without her strapped to me.
I'm thrilled that I'm able to comfort her. I dont know what I would do if I couldnt. There have been a couple of times the past couple of nights where she did seem inconsolable...but a lot of floor walking did the trick. I'm not sure if it is pain....which I'm sure she does have....but we are treating her for it.... so, not sure if it is pain, fright, or just plain misery. It's so difficult when they dont speak and cant tell ya exactly what is wrong or what they need.

She is able to eat a few things the past two days and that is a great thing! It has to be small pieces, very soft, and she has to put it in her mouth just sooo...but she is getting some solid food. We are also continuing to give her the pediasure shakes and she seems to also enjoy them.

Thanks again for everyones prayers and support!!!!!
Hope everyone has a great, last day of 2008!

Continuing to lift you and your family up in prayer. DH and I made the decision to get rid of our dog. She growled for the first time at Sophie this afternoon, and we just can't chance it. I'm just so sorry for what you all are going through. God bless you.

Oh, I am soooo happy to read that she is feeling just a little better. It just so incredibly hard when they can't tell you what they want or know. Sending prayers that she continues to heal quickly. Hope the boys are understanding a little more.
