The picture from the last post was taken a few minutes ago as Anaya sat in her chair in the sun. We've had to paint her tongue with gentian violet, an antifungal medicine, because she has thrush real bad right now. I think the antibiotics caused a yeast overgrowth. Poor baby - yucky itchy mouth must be awful.
I've been trying to reach the Specialists office this morning to get a booking to take Anaya to North Carolina but they haven't called me back yet. As soon as I have a date I can find out if any of the trip will be covered by medical. So far we have recieved almost two hundred dollars in donations from our readers towards the trip/move. Anaya's "uncle Grant" has also promised some money towards the trip. We are so appreciative. Thank you so much.
Last night Anaya had the worst seizure activity I've ever seen her have. Her whole body was convulsing and she was very distressed. Add to this that someone left a nasty comment on my post... What an awful evening. I couldn't help but respond to this person, as I was hurt and angry. Whoever it is, I hope they quit reading my blog. They don't deserve to share in this experience with us. I'd like to know who it is, so that I can be certain to keep a distance from them. I'm going to let it go now. None of it is true, or relevant or helpful in any way.
I took Solara to see the Dr. And we got a referral to a child councellor. I hear she's a good lady. I have an appointment for myself tomorrow, to get myself some mental/emotional help too. Everything is so overwhelming right now. It feels like the world is coming apart by the seams. I want to keep it together to be strong for my baby and my family. But I feel stretched so thin, so tired.
I want to thank you, reader, for being here for me, for all of us. I lay bare my soul to you because I need the support and understanding. Know that I read each and every comment of love and support and take it to my heart. I know I'm not alone in this, and I'm thankful for you.
