5/8/2011 Mother’s Day 151 Days Old

May 8th, 2011

on the 151st day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning did not begin peacefully. Maya had a tough night. She has had a lot of congestion since about Monday. We think that she has a cold. Last night the congestion built up and Maya was having a hard time breathing. She would try to sleep, but would wake up every few minutes to cough. Her alarm went off more times than I care to remember. We did not sleep much last night. There was a few hours between 1:00 and 4:00 that Maya stayed asleep. Her struggle continued until about 2:00 this afternoon. After a few doses of morphine Maya was finally able to get some rest.

Grandma Kathy came over this afternoon to watch Maya so that Erin and I could plant a garden. We were able to work in the yard for a few hours and got the garden done. Erin’s mothers day got a little better from then on. Maya stayed resting for the most part, and we got to eat dinner. Maya is still hurting a little, but she is doing resting now. We are hoping for an alarmless night. We need the sleep.
