Feeling crummy again

Just wanted to give a quick update. Kerstin is on her "tough" medication week. She has had a headache since Monday that just won't go away. She has even asked for Tylenol, which we have been giving her, but it doesn't seem to help. Yesterday she slept in until 9:30 and then took naps at 11:15 and after school. She didn't sleep well last night (maybe too much naps???), continuing to complain of a headache. This morning she still had a headache, so I didn't give her any morning meds. She barely ate anything and even threw up this morning. She also said that things were kind of blurry. When she laid on the floor while we were playing Barbies, I knew that she just wasn't feeling well. She ended up sleeping for a couple of hours this afternoon which seemed to help a little bit.

Jeff is working today, but Annie was able to stay home with Kerstin and even called the clinic. Dr. G recommended skipping some of her meds today and making sure she gets lots of rest. We have an appointment to see him at St. E's in the morning (it was our previously scheduled appointment anyway). He plans to give her a check up including looking at her eyes. Thanks for checking on us and for your continued prayers. We know that days like today are just little bumps in the road. Thanks also for your prayers for our friends Abby, Hannah, Mary, Elissa, and many others.

Miss Kerstin! We are so sorry that you are feeling so ROUGH! We will be glad when you are off this week of meds and you are back to feeling good! Abby is really missing you! It was a nice day here in Omaha! Abby and I walked 2 times around the apartment building! We saw a rabbit, lots of birds and a big traffic jam on Maple street! (we don't see a lot of traffic jams at home!) We will be in clinic tomorrow in Omaha! We hope Dr G has some idea of how to make you feel better baby girl!

Hi Kerstin-

Kerstin - sorry to hear that your not feeling good. I just wanted to thank you for coming out Saturday and seeing us off on our ride. Everyone was very happy to meet you and commented what a "big smile" you have. The granoal bars really hit the spot about half way into the ride. You make us want to training as hard as we can and do our best for you in Lake Tahoe. We're thinking of you.

Bummer, Kerstin. We are sad that you are feeling bad. Sorry about that headache. It almost sounds like a migrane. Dr. G has some good advice, rest and relax! Hope he can find something to help you. Hang in there, honey!
