Update on Elena

Elena seems to be perking up, but she did not feel up to going to school today. "One more day Mommy, just one more day", as she curled up under the covers.

She has been playing more and seems to have a bit more energy. When I see her bouncing around the house I become aware of my anxiety level and it eases a bit. When she's feeling good, she rarely walks anywhere, she bounces around a bit like Tigger.

She hasn't felt well for many months. She has good days and then needs several days to recuperate. As a parent, it has been draining, not knowing what to do, not knowing what is wrong... We (and the Doctor's) believe it's allergies, click here to read more.

She has been sleeping a lot. This week-end she slept til 10:00 one day and 11:00 the next day. Typically, she never sleeps in no matter what time she goes to bed. Even when bedtime was set really early, she would still lie in bed for hours, (having a terrible time falling asleep due to the congestion) and then be wide awake at 7:00 a.m.

The antihistamine that she's taking can make her sleepy. I am hopeful that she is finally getting the rest that she needs, I am hopeful that her body is transitioning into a healing phase.

We want to thank you for praying for her. We are hopeful with the progress that we've seen. We are thankful for the doctors and medicine that we have access to. We are thankful that we can share our concerns with you. We are thankful for good friends and family. We are thankful to have a mighty Physician to call upon and ask for healing. We are thankful for Jesus. We are thankful for hope. We are thankful for our little pumpkin.

Just a few photos I stumbled upon from September 2006.
