Ella had a rough morning. Thankfully, it became better by late afternoon.

She woke up earlier than normal with gas pains and diarrhea. I’m not sure how long she had a soiled diaper because she also had a mild diaper rash. We cuddled for an hour or so until the pain subsided and then she went back to sleep until 10:15am or so.

That was a blessing in disguise because Kelly had a migraine. On average, she gets a migraine once per week. Yuck, I can’t relate. I think headaches or migraines have to be one of the worst things to endure. Although I have never had a migraine, so I feel blessed.

Based on them both feeling under the weather, it was a calm day for the Bun and Kelly. They cuddled a lot in the rocking chair.

We had our first session with the occupational therapist. We have homework for this next week. She asked us to start trying to play around her mouth, kiss her mouth, take various fabrics and wipe them across her mouth and lips. Also, we are to take her binky and dip it in apple juice to get her used to the flavor and taste. So far, both of these things are very challenging with Ella. She doesn’t like things near her mouth or making her try to drink beverages from her bottle, especially when she didn’t ask for it.

We had another physical therapy session and it went well. We feel blessed to have found our PT. She understands about going slow with Ella and is taking the time to make sure that Ella gets used to her before manipulating her body to do tough things.

Please pray that Ella can continue feeling better and that Kelly’s migraine would subside.

Hebrews 12:3
Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
