WOO HOO - One Year!

Today marks a year since Jenelle's last hospital admission. Wow, I never actually thought we'd go this long (or be this healthy) but I'm thrilled she is doing so well. I checked the archives to read what we were doing a year ago, and unfortunately not much has changed since that last hospital admission. If you'd like to stroll down memory lane, click here.

Jenelle still has bouts of inconsolable crying. We have no idea why she does this. We assume she is trying to get attention or cries in frustration, but as you can imagine it is quite frustrating for us as well. In fact, last night, Jenelle had a screaming fit for a good 45 minutes. When I held her, she stopped crying, giggled a little, then got so wiggly it was too difficult to keep hold of her, so I put her down only to have her start crying again. The crying finally stopped when I decided to give her some Tylenol. In fact, I put her in her bed, gave her Tylenol and left her alone for a few minutes. As if she was getting a "time out" or something. I felt horrible but at the same time, I couldn't stand the crying any longer.

So, playing Dr. Mom, I think I'll continue with the Tylenol when she starts her crying fits. If this works, then we'll need to take her to the doctor and/or ER to figure out what is wrong. My fear is that perhaps she has broken a bone or something and we just haven't figured out where. I hope it truly is simply 3 year old antics.

We are enjoying this first day of summer and this new milestone for our girl! What an amazing year it has been!

Being out of the hospital for an entire year is wonderful!

I hope she is ok and just throwing some tantrums!

Congrats on such a great anniversary! I too hope she is okay, your Tylenol experiment sounds like a good one.

Waaa-hooo!!! Put the docs outta business, Jenelle! Uh, wait a second..

Re: the crying spells- does she only cry when she is lying down? I am sure people have already been yelling REFLUX at you, but could that be a possibility? She didn't get a Nissen with the G-tube did she?

Lovin the new layout, btw.
