7 Hours.

Woke up this morning to gagging and puking in the monitor at 5:30 a.m.

Successfully threw up her NG Tube.

Three tubes later...

Puddles of throw up later...

7 hours of crying/irritability/fussiness later...

1 failed attempt at sedating her via early morning car ride later...

1 failed tylenol dose later...

1 failed application of infant orajel later...

2 extreme headaches later...

We got her down for a nap.

I don't like to be the finger pointer...but it's your fault. You prayed. You prayed she'd make it out of the hospital. You prayed for dead hearts to come back to life. You prayed for her story to go on. Without your prayers we wouldn't be battling (what had better be) the most epic tooth breaking through gums of all time.

As my grandpa has preached, "If you're praying for rain, you better bring an umbrella."

So, contentment is the word of the day.

Be content. Because your prayerfulness or prayerlessness has gotten you to where you are.

As I am typing this sentence, the little bugger is crying again already.

You did this to me.

And I (am trying to) love every minute of it!

You are very welcome!:) Also...Hoping it is her teeth. Ella is doing the exact same thing and they are around the same age and she should be on schedule for her eye teeth and they are the WORST to get in! Praying for Chaia and you guys and hoping these babies get better soon! Sending hugs and kisses and as always still kneeling in Springfield:)
