April 2012 – On the Mend

Sophie seems to be doing a little better. Still fever-free and eating only a little during the day. She would try and play, but she’s developed a rash on her bottom that defies all over-the-counter medications. One second she would be playing with a toy and the next she would scream “DIAPER”, grab her bottom and cry for 20 minutes at a time. It was heartbreaking to watch. 

The pediatrician prescribed some medicine for this problem and tonight she seems in great spirits. She took a long nap and woke up with a great appetite. We’re thanking God as we see her finally eating. 

The liver team decided that it was ok to continue with Wednesday’s surgery. Hopefully tomorrow will be better with her renewed appetite and continued diaper treatments. 

I guess we can say we’re happy to see her have normal kid problems. But when the screaming and tears come, it pulls on our hearts like everything else she’s been through. Hopefully, the poor girlie is on the mend & will be geared up for Wednesday. 

Thanks for the prayers!
