Sunday, February 10, 2008 - Update

I hope that you all enjoyed the pictures. Weren't they just about the cutest pictures you've ever seen? I may write the captions, but Ryan is the one that captures her personality so beautifully. Olivia just loves being in her chair with her animals. . .I think she takes after her mom. I have always felt more comfortable around children and animals than I do around other adults. . .I'm not sure what that says about me. Anytime I'm at a party or social gathering, I'm usually off playing with the kids or the family dog.

Anyway, Olivia's vomiting is becoming more and more frequent as she threw up her phenobarb bottle again last night. It's only the bottle with the phenobarb that she's thrown up which leads me to believe that it is the culprit. Please pray for her tomorrow during her EEG. I think that they will have to sedate her because when has she ever sat still for 45 minutes in her life? Plus, we are not supposed to feed her or let her sleep from 5:30 am to 9:30 am. . .yeah, right. I'm really stressed about tomorrow. I want her results to be great so that she doesn't have to take the phenobarb anymore. Actually, I don't think she will be able to take it anymore. We can get it down her, but there's not guarantee that it will stay there. Maybe that's just her way of telling us that she doesn't need it anymore (like when she pulled out her ventilator, etc.) Please keep us in your prayers tomorrow.

P.S. Ryan, I'm still really sorry about eating all of the Olive Garden mints. :-)

A friend (Neva) has a son (Charlie) that didn't tolerate the phenobarb. I believe there is another form they can give the drug in that is easier to tolerate. If you would like me to talk to Neva, I would be happy to.

Olivia, Uncle Joel and I can't wait for spring to start on the "Johnny Chuck Land" behind our house. We are looking forward to the day when you can run around it with the girls and discover all the special little places where your "friends" could live.

PS Jodi, I think it is great that you are still pumping and I can understand how you would be thrilled with your body's amazing ability.

I hope the EEG goes well tomorrow. I will say a prayer for you all!

Here's to hoping Olivia is sleeping peacefully through her EEG. I can only imagine all the goofy things you probably had to do to keep her awake this morning. A chorus line with her woodland friends perhaps?!

And I think you're right about the phenobarb. That EEG is going to come back wonderful and she won't need it anymore. She's seemed to know what she needs or doesn't need before anybody else figures it out!

Jodi, I'm totally the same way at social gatherings. Where's the dog and/or the kid at? That's where you'll usually find me.


P.S. I can't believe you ate all the Olive Garden mints. :-)
