Lily's Back to See Dr. Mike

Lily playing on the Sit 'n Spin in one of Dr. Mike's exam rooms.

After our little adventure to the emergency room, we went back to visit Dr. Mike today.

A nursing student came and did the vitals. She even let Lily press the button on the "arm hugging" (blood pressure) machine.

Next, the nurse came in to get more details about the dystonic reaction. It's pretty rare, but the worst possible reaction Lily could have had. She's been off of the medication since the ER visit and she's had no more adverse side effects.

Then, it was time to play with toys and wait for Dr. Mike to come in.

When Dr. Mike came in, he looked at Lily's ears and throat. Then, he "gave her a heart" (listened to her heart with his stethoscope). The reaction she had cut our options in half. So, we're going to try a completely new approach.

Over the next three weeks, we're going to focus on Lily's sleep cycle. Getting her on a regular sleep schedule and try to get her to sleep through the night. No more waking up 1, 2, 3 times in the middle of the night to get drinks, play, watch TV.

Back in 3 weeks...
