Leena is doing amazingly today and I have such a new appreciation for her and all her little two year old traits. We are refreshed, renewed. In an odd way, we needed this sickness. I would not wish it ever to happen again but it made me have a new outlook on life in just these few days. We, as parents, have been really lucky with Leena having no major illnesses. A few scares, but normal scares just from being a new parent. I am ready to get our lives completely in order. Be more active and learn more on herbal medicines and a healthier way of life. We have started this step but now I am more determined than ever to make it happen. I will know how I can naturally help my child/future children if something like this should ever happen again. I promise you that. It's a terrible feeling, the feeling of absolute helplessness when your child is so sick she can't even hold her own head up. Seeing your normally vibrant and caring little girl so irritable and wanting nothing but to be left alone, that tore me up. Watching her drop weight so rapidly that her signature belly is now normal sized for a kid her age. I miss that belly but I am so glad to have my cheerful, caring daughter back. We are moving forward with a different way of life. Starting today we will actually live.
Eating her first meal since Saturday. Oatmeal pancakes and soy yogurt. :)
Peace and Love and Happy Wednesday.
