Thursday, 28 November 2013: Two Hundred and Forty One Days Old.
When Ayla woke up this morning it was hard to tell whether she’d gotten worse or stayed the same.
She was still sneezing and her nose was terribly runny, her eyes still had bright red rings with dark grey circles underneath, and her temperature was hovering around 38 degrees.
It’s absolutely true when they say you don’t know what it is to worry until you have a kid, so when Ayla started to show signs of improvement Hubby and I breathed a massive sigh of relief.
And then when her fever finally broke, we knew we were about to get our little girl back.
While Ayla is still no where near 100%, when she went to bed tonight her eyes were nearly back to normal (except for the watery tears) and she was HEAPS more active and mobile compared to the day before.
Ayla even found the energy to play this afternoon; she had a bath, some fruit for tea and a ride on her rocking horse before finally surrendering to the zzzzz’s.
