Sorry for the lack of posts.. It's been an eventful week! So after her confirmed ear infection on Thursday last week, her fever still didn't subside until the next morning. Then Friday we noticed a little bit of what looked like a rash show up on her forehead. Bela sometimes gets blotchy on her forehead so I didn't think too much of it. Saturday tho, it started going down onto her cheeks and neck. By Sunday it was all over her chest, tummy, and back. I called Beth and we figured out she had Roseola, on top of her ear infection! My poor baby! The rash is an indicator that the worst is over though, and by Monday most of the rash was gone and she was feeling SO much better. Tuesday she was almsot back to her sweet little self. Ahhh, so glad to have that over with! Today I took her in to have her repeat Echo done... and guess what?! She decided to surprise us all again and have a good echo! Her pressure measurement was around 40 last week (crossing the safe mark) and today it was back down to 26! Back in the safe zone! So no cath in the very near future. Hopefully it was just bc her body was so sick that her heart was in overload. Her dr. sorta just shrugged his shoulders when he gave me the news.. I think they were surprised. I was totally prepared for bad news and a cath date.. so it was great news! The Bela roller coaster ride continues.. I hope we can keep her healthy and hospital free for a long time!
I had a trip with girlfriends planned this weekend, but I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to go because of possible heart issues, but looks like I'm going! I leave tomorrow a.m., and I'm so excited! I know I'll worry (of course) and I'll miss my little munchkins, but I know it will be so nice to have a break.. Hopfully Tanner will survive.. :)
bye for now!
