No big change here. Rachel is still eating small amounts. She is making her 'talking noises' again. She does seem a bit stronger, and this is most noticeable in her cry. Her cry is really stressing me out though this morning. My heart just clenches to hear it. And she is not happy or settling easy. And so we are not able to relax much either. We were both struggling with disappointment yesterday - we thought that relief was around the corner for her (and us). I wrote a bit of how I felt guilty about feeling that way. Dave did some personal journaling yesterday about that too. I think we have moved past that today, but these ups and downs have been excruciatingly hard. We feel so worn. I love that Dave is home this week, but I can't help thinking how very different our holidays could be.
I have received several very encouraging emails in the past few days. (and comments too!) Thank-you so much. Your words have been life-giving and so encouraging to me!
