3/9/2011 92 Days Old

March 9th, 2011

On the 92nd day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Maya had heart troubles last night. She woke up at about 4:00, and was hungry. We started her feeding and held her to calm her down. In the middle of her feeding her heart rate dropped down to below 60 beats per minute. Her heart rate bounced back and forth between 55 and about 90 for several minutes before it rebounded to 160. It dropped down a couple more times before she was able to regulate it for good. During these episodes we hold her and stop feeding her. She doesn’t seem to be irritated at all when this happens. She just kind of goes limp. Every muscle is completely relaxed. I don’t know how we would handle these episodes if we thought that she was hurting. After we got her feeding finished she went back to sleep and has been fine ever since.

After I left for work today Grandma Patti came by to watch Maya so that Erin could get some work done. They had a good day. Other than some impressive diaper filling it was an uneventful day. When I got home this evening Maya and Erin were sitting on the couch. We didn’t have any visitors tonight. It was just our little family. We ate dinner and are watching the big 12 tourney now. We are trying unsuccessfully to keep Maya awake so that she will sleep tonight. Somehow she got the idea in her head that she runs the show around here. Maybe it is all that princess stuff grandma is always telling her.¬†We need to get some sleep tonight. Erin will be going into work tomorrow. Me and Grandma Kathy will be taking care of Maya.
