Well, I'm afraid Marissa caught her daddy's cold. She started having excess secretions yesterday and she is having an extra hard time sleeping. All the excess snot is causing her to cough more, gag on the snot and then she throws up. She is very crabby and very clingy this morning.
I remind you all of this post in which I talk about her puking in her hair and me having to clean it up by myself. Well, this morning, the same thing happened again. Almost exactly the same way. Ugh! This along with very little sleep in the last few nights and a malfunctioning feeding pump, I had a meltdown. I called Jeremy and he patiently listened to my hysterics, whining and complaining. We hung up, I put my big girl panties on ( I just LOVE that expression!! ;) and got down to the business of cleaning her up.
The world did not fall off its axis. The sun did not stop shining. Marissa's head did not spin around. My house did not implode. I did not die. I guess I need to wear my big girl panties more often.
Please pray that her secretions stay thin and clear and this illness does not go to her lungs. Also pray that I am able to avoid the sickies as well. I have a trach moms get together on Sunday that I desperately want to go to. I love these ladies and our long lost trach mommy, Tina, will be in town for a rare visit. I really need to go see these girls. They help me stay sane. That, and my big girl panties. :)
Enjoy a few pictures from this morning, after I cleaned Marissa's puke hair. By the way, we are having a full-blown "stay in your jammies" day. I think we deserve it!
