On Monday afternoon Kendall started with congestion again. I ended up taking her into the Dr. just to be sure her lungs were clear. Thankfully, they were. The pediatrician's appointment ended up taking waaaay longer than I thought it would. But we left with a new prescription for a nasal spray (nasacort). I've heard it's pretty uncommon for Dr.'s to say a child has allergies at such a young age. But our Dr. is a little out there sometimes. So I kinda rolled my eyes as we were leaving, planning to continue the breathing treatments. I humored him and filled the Rx and started Kendall on it Wednesday. It actually worked, and now she's a ton better. Could it be so easy? Guess we wait and see.
She's been sleeping better, but it takes her such a long time to go to sleep. I guess she's a night owl. It kills me because she is so active everyday. She's been standing in her stander for at least an hour each day, sometimes twice a day, eating by mouth three times a day, and getting some sort of therapy for an hour a day, and some days swinging for 20 minutes 3 times a day. I'm so surprised she's not getting more tired around 8 or so. Instead, she sings and goofs around fighting sleep each night until midnight, sometimes later. Then she's up by 8 for insulin and only takes an hour nap. I wish she'd go to bed earlier!!! But I am thankful she's been going back to sleep after I re-position her (every 2 hours!) So I'll take what sleep I can get.
We're looking forward to an uneventful, lazy weekend. Hope you all enjoy yours too.
