Ugh, really need to post more

I have been really slacking on the blog front. But the nice thing about it is now I have the laptop back so it will be easier to keep updated more. 

So last month my baby girl turned 3. She is getting bigger and bigger everyday. She is still not talking but she is starting to do better with telling us her wants using different means. We just had parent teacher conferences and everyone is happy with the progress that she has made, and she has come a along way from the first week of school.

As of right now she is 30 lbs and is around 2 1/2 feet long. Everything went good with the pediatrician and they are happy with where she is right not. A week after her wellness check we went to her ENT and her right tube has come out and the left tube is still in place. Hopefully we dont go back to what happened before she had the tubes in. We haven't seen the cardiologist since Apirl, but do to behavioral issues that have been going on this last week we will be going to see him next week. 

All this last week Alyzea has been very cranky. She was waking up at all hours of the night and crying for atleast an hour before she would relax. Sometimes we would have to give her Tylenol and then she would be fine. She was also having low grade fevers off and on through out the weekend. She went to school one day and out of the blue she started screaming and wanted to go home. Nothing the teachers did made her happy and they even had other teachers coming out of their classrooms trying to help calm her down. Thats what it was like at home also, she had a couple of days where she would be laughing running around the house then out of the blue she start crying and was just unhappy. We thought that maybe it was her teeth but when I looked in her mouth everything looked ok. So even though I didnt think it was anything to do with her heart I called her cardiologist to see if there was anything they could think it was. They said that they didnt believe it was anything that related to her heart but that since she had significant aortic stenosis they would be happy to take a look and make sure. After the weekend when she was fighting the fevers we took her to the pedis office and they found nothing wrong with her. So who knows what is going on with her, and with her being non verbal it is harder to find out what is wrong. 

On too non Aly news. With the holidays coming I started working again so that we will be able to spoil our families with gifts. I like cause I am only working part time, so I can still spend time with my family. Come January I will be also going back to school. It has been something that has been on my mind lately and I just believe it is time to finish this chapter in my life. I think that I will be going back to for a two year degree in early childhood education with some training in special education. I have always loved children and I think that this is the best thing for me.

As I said before, I now have my laptop back so I will be able to post some more about Aly and the family.

  1. Sorry she is having some behavioral issues. But as you know they are quite common with many CHD kiddos. Hope her ear stays stable. Keep us posted on her cardiac app please.Its the same with Broc whenever something out of the ordinary goes wrong we call cardio and they are always willing to look at her even if its peace of mind for me.
