The past few days have been incredible. Anaya hasn't had such a peaceful existance since before she became ill. She is relaxed and shows periods of awareness. She is responding in her own way to sounds and touch. Her second tooth is almost in but it does not seem to be causing too much pain. Last week I had an epiphany that perhaps she was having stomach aches and heartburn. I approached our doc with my theory and we are trying some antacid medicine. It really seems to be working. Anaya is refluxing less and seems very comfortable. I have not needed to suction her in days.
We have some new moms that have started pumping milk for Anaya. They are joining the ranks of our Heros, Anaya's Milky Moms. We feel blessed to have you in our lives and can only hope to convey our love and appreciation through mere words.
I would have to say that this week has been one of Anaya's healthiest weeks ever. She is very stable - improving even. She is sleeping well but also has periods of calm alertness during the day.
On my end things are great. How can they not be when Anaya is doing so well? I'm enjoying our moments together. Basking in the saintly glow of her sweetness. I can only hope that she will remain comfortable and in good spirits.
Her first birthday fast approaches!
