It's great to hear that she's growing so well!
I'm sure it's heartbreaking to watch them stick needles into her tiny legs.
But it's a good thing that she gets the medical care she needs!
It's tough being a mom, isn't it? But also so rewarding! I'm glad to hear she's such a good baby!
I now have a pretty painful period, it started two weeks after the killer ovulation... It's good to know that I am regular, at least. And luckily the painkillers help! I'm just dreading the next time I ovulate... *knocks on wood*
Samu still has a flu of sorts, but it's not bad enough that he should stay at home. He basically has a runny nose and that's it. We did, however, take him to a private clinic last week because there were a few pretty bad nights, and the specialist told us that no, he didn't have an ear infection but he needs to get his tongue tie, throat and ears operated on, preferably all at once. The tongue tie is the reason he puked up so much when he was a baby, and it will most likely affect his speech if it's not dealt with... There's a part of the throat that's susceptible to infections and causes him to snore while he sleeps, and if he gets more infections in his ears, putting tubes in might help.
It was the first time someone actually mentioned the tongue tie (I'd suspected it for a long time but decided it couldn't be because he gained weight so well) and I feel angry that my suspicions were ignored at all the checkups we went to and I mentioned the puking... The whole thing would have been so much easier to deal with when he was a newborn than what it will be now that he's older.
We decided to take a month and see if he gets any more ear infections and then we're supposed to get in touch with the doctor.
I am going to see the surgeon who operated on me during our fall holiday in mid-October. I still have plenty of time to make a list of all the things that still bother me about the whole birth experience.
I hope you're having a good week! Let me know how you're doing.
