Binki Brail

Well this afternoon has been the most challenging so far. She has Brest fed twice today but vomited it up about and hour later. She also puked up the pain meds so we just tried some new kinds. Were think moriphine for the night so she rest well and the pain stays under control. I do know she is hang in there when she doing binki managment ( this is switching between two diffent binkis like gum when the taste is gone). We held her most of the day when she was not sleeping. Joe and I are both coverd in puke and stink. You think Purna looks bad at lest she has a good excuse. Tomorrow should be another bad day with swelling but hopfully not vomitng and she can eat some more to get some strengh back. She should get her drain tube pulled out tomorrow as well which has been a source of pain. She has stop most of the bleeding in her head so this is good. Her cut/stiches is already looking great. We have to clean it five times day and put ontiment on it. It does not get dressed up it heals in the open air it which is nice.
Another day closer to her feeling better. This makes mama bear happy. Like I said before I would of done anything to of been able to do this for her, but this is her fight not mine. I think the hardest part about babies is they just don't know what or why this is happing. All she know is she has ouchies and can't see a dam thing. I have been singing to her all day ( this might make the pain worse) she reaches up and grabs my face to feel that it's me.. Or trying to cover my mouth so I'll stop. She really did like just being held today and so did I. This was the best part of the day for Joe and I.
This childrens hospital is a very humbling place to be I'll tell you. I just kiss my baby Purna on the big swollen forehead and say thank you for the most amazing perfect gift of my life.
Thank you for choosing us Purna..

And I would like to put a disclaimer in: I am a horriable speller/writer to begain with and then put no sleep, stress an typing on an iPhone.. Well you have all seen how that's turning out but I think you get the idea..

Honey...thinking of you on an ongoing basis and saying my prayers for you all....I am elated that things are going per the plan and that baby is seemingly managing her experience as best as possible. Thank God she will never remember this in the years to come and hopefully this will be the end of this type of dramatic happening in her life. If love could have healed her I know you would have Heather. Will continue to pray for a quick recovery for you all...

  12. Whoa....

    Later, you could put some of those pics on a t-shirt with a caption, "So, you think you're tough?". She could wear that to school when she's a teenager.

    Really, though, Purna is such a great little baby, and you are all showing such strength & character to get through this together. I truly wish you the best.

  14. Love all the posts and the high spirited commentary mixed in is refreshing...You're quite the writer Heather.

    Hopefully future parents having to go through this same experience will be able to read your blogs so they can guide them and give them the strength you guys have.

    Purna is such a strong little baby girl! She definitely has 2 of the best people for the job by her side...God knew what he was doing when he paired you 3 up :)
