Tuesday during the day she was still feeling well, but that changed when it came time to go to bed. We put the girls to bed at their normal time of 7:30 pm, but Naomi and Phoebe wanted to just stay up and play in their room. When midnight came, I decided to take my pillow and blanket into their room to see if that would quiet them down and help them fall asleep. It didn't. They didn't fall asleep until 2:30 in the morning, which meant neither did I.
Even with falling asleep at such a late hour, they still woke up at 7:30 in the morning! I was exhausted but they were full of energy and ready to go.
The day went smoothly. It was full of smiles, giggles and lots of fun playing with toys. They were not cranky or irritable, and didn't tire out once. When bedtime rolled around, the girls fell right asleep and slept their normal 12 hours.
Then the storm system started to roll in. With the high pressure caused by the rain storm and the heat Phoebe started to get sore and achy. She always feels that way when storms come. This would be the first time there was a system like this since the nodes were removed, so I wasn't sure if it would affect her as much as it usually did.
It rained for the next three days, and each day Phoebe felt affected. She would get a slight headache and felt some pressure in her neck, but nothing like it had been. She used to need to take tylenol every four hours to help with the pain and pressure, and she would sleep for a few hours. She didn't need to take tylenol once through all these days of rain, and she didn't nap either! The most she would do is curl up on the couch under her blanket and watch tv!
