A rough night, but a better day
Alex's massage therapy
So it really seems like Alex is upside down in her sleeping patterns now. Last night when we left she was asleep (& had been for a few hours) - so we were hoping she would sleep well through the night. But when we arrived this morning we found out that wasn't the case. That she had been up and fussing nearly all night :(
We thought maybe it was because they hadn't resumed her feeds yet (standard protocol when there's a respiratory issue), but as soon as she heard our voices she completely calmed down. Of course this made us feel terrible for leaving her overnight. And, although she was calm, she was clearly mad at us - just glaring and refusing to smile. So we made it up to her by getting her out of bed & holding her. They also resumed her tube feeding this morning. All of this put her right to sleep & made everyone happy.
A big thank you
I know we've hit a pretty rough patch recently, but we've gotten through it with the help of all of you. I don't want to mention any names specifically for fear of leaving anyone out - there have honestly been so many of you doing kind things for us. But everything has been making a huge difference to us, from the awesome care package to the yummy meals; from family visits to the dedicated bloggers letting us know you're there every step of the way. Thank you all so much. We're incredibly blessed to have such loving friends & family surrounding us.
