Hope has been out of her arm restraints for a little more than a week and back on solid foods for four days.
While I’d love to say that everything is fine and Hope is better than ever, that’s not all true. Her recovery from the surgery is complete. She’s reacquainted herself to solid foods. The thing is, she’s sick.
Since Sunday night, she’s been coughing, stuffed up with a runny nose and has been running a fever. She has moments where she’ll smile and play, but most of the time, she’ll walk from one room to the other looking not happy or comfortable. Don’t believe me? Take a look:
I almost want to say she was happier after her surgery.
The Civee took her to the doctor’s today and was told Hope caught some virus that’s going around now. It could get better, it could get worse. The pediatrician said to keep giving her fluids, but other than that, didn’t have much else to say.
When she was a few months old, Hope had a minor ear infection. But this is the first time she’s been sick enough to the point where we can tell how unhappy and uncomfortable she is.
Hope will probably use this as an opportunity to eat as much Jell-O and ice cream as possible. That will end once she’s looking and feeling better.
