Much happier!

Since Friday afternoon Bela has been doing so much better! Two days of shots and she was feeling much better and has been sleeping and eating since. Yeah! (by eating I mean being tube fed and not throwint it up.) Everytime we make some progress with eating orally, she gets sick and by the time she starts feeling better it's like we've started over. I think eating is just such a bother to her, since she's never really had to do it herself. She just dosn't want to stop for 2 minutes to eat.
Anyway, it is nice to have her back, we missed our happy girl. She is back to blowing kisses, waving at everyone, saying baby 500 times a day (her favorite word), crawling over to the bath pointing at it and saying "ba!", dropping everything so she can say UH-OH, and climbing up the stairs..

What is amazing is how well they rebound when they feel better. Hearing you mention all of that overwhelms me a little. I have this pipe dream that if Ethan gets better EVERYTHING will be easy from here on out. We have to just tell ourselves that to get through each day right?! Maybe we can rest and be worry free in the next life ;)
Love-

Still checking back often to see how litte Bela is doing. She is such a cutie. I think her and my Kate (14 months) would be good friends!
There is a family with a newborn that is suffering from 9 heart defects, and fighting hard for his life. I told her about your blog, so maybe she will contact you. But if you want here is the link to her blog:

I am sure you an expert by now, and could maybe shed some light for her.
I am so glad Bela is doing better!

so, random that I'm on your blog...long story. But, I took family photo's by the same person that your friend Caitlyn did, so I was looking at her blog and you looked familiar. Is your maiden name Woofinden? spelling? Woofington? Anyway, I'm glad I came upon your blog anyway because you are a strong mom and I always need those for examples.
