The was a little girl who had a little curlRight in the middle of her forehead;When she was good, she was very, very good,And when she was bad, she was horrid.~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~
Don't you just love the many faces of our goofy Rissa Roo?
Quick update: After my last post, we all had the night from hell. Marissa woke up at 2:30 in the morning when her pulse ox alarmed because it wasn't picking up correctly. She normally sleeps through it but not this time. After an hour and a half of trying to put her back to sleep, we finally gave up. Jeremy was able work from home Thursday and Friday, so we had a 4 day weekend to rest up and see if we could get Marissa's attitude on track. A very encouraging development: Marissa was relatively well behaved because her Daddy was here. While it makes me a bit jealous that she will behave for him and rails so hard against me, it is good because it makes us more confident that we are not looking at a medical reason behind her outbursts. She is just darn sick and tired of being around me all the time and she takes it out on me!
She has had her ups and downs this morning but overall, I think the long stretch of Daddy time was good for her. She seems to be a little milder this morning. And, I was able to get out Friday evening and go see a good friend who is 8 months pregnant. We had Chinese takeout and talked for about 5 hours, before we realized how late it was. So good for my soul!
So, thank you for all the support, love, and prayers! Keep up the good thoughts and prayers, they seem to be working!
