and we knew it would. Each day is a bit of a sign that things are on the “up.” However, there are going to be days where she is detoxing. Today was a rough day. Alyssa is vomiting in a way that looks …beware… TMI… almost like yogurt. Like, if you dumped a container of yogurt out of the floor it would look almost the same. We’re remaining calm and reminding ourselves that we are not going to undo 3 years of intestinal drama in a week. It’s going to take time, patience, and readjustment. However, the changes that are already happening in her are proof enough for me that this is a step in the right direction. The thing with Incontinentia Pigmenti is that the doctors are never certain where things are going. Alyssa doesn’t have a book written about her… we are writing it one day at a time. I’m just so grateful that the people who are helping us to fill the pages are such positive and awe-inspiring co-writers. We are truly blessed every.single.day.
The best part of today was we got a chance to get out and celebrate my birthday with friends and some of the family. We hit the strip and went to Serendipity 3. If you’ve never been there? GO! They seriously have so much deliciousness under one roof that you’ll never grow tired of it. I’m grateful it’s on the strip, because if it was down the street? I’d weigh 800 lbs! HAHA!
Becky and I being cheesy about an oreo frozen hot chocolate. Really… I’m not kidding about the 800 lb thing! HAHAHA! It was a great time with everyone… despite Alyssa getting sick just before we entered the restaurant. Although, I’m pretty sure she was not the first person to toss her cookies on the cement on the strip. 😉
At the end of the day we put our sweet lady down to bed and decided that we will call Windrose and see how they feel about the fact she’s still spitting up. Despite the fact she isn’t lactose intolerant… I’m thinking she may need something easier to process for a while. Milk is never delish on an empty stomach! I’m loving that our sweet girl snuggles into us more than pulling away from us now though. It’s like her ability to relax is up a ton. Little by little!
