Things are looking up!

Mia's lip infection is getting much better! Thank you for everyone's prayers! That was the scariest thing to have to take her to the ER and try to figure out what to do to make sure this infection didn't get worse.

We met with the plastic surgeon yesterday and honestly, I was a bit scared to meet with him. He's a brilliant surgeon, but can be a bit intimidating. He's definitely not the warm and fuzzy type. He looked at it an literally said 5 phrases: Localized infection, getting better, keep it clean, keep on putting the ointment, see you next week.

So I guess that's a good sign that Mia's infection is getting better. He told us that Mia doesn't have to wear her arm restraints (These little velcro arm braces to keep her from touching her face), but poor Mia has a itchy rash on her face as a reaction to the antibotics...so it looks like just a few more days of the no-no's so that she doesn't scratch her face.

This has been a long healing process for Mia, but we finally feel like healing is starting!!

She is still gulping down 5 ounce bottles every 3-4 hours so that's great!! Mia is her smiley and at times fussy self again. When you go through something like this, you realize that all that matters is that the one's you love are healthy. I am so thankful our my amazingly thorough and caring husband and my fiesty and happy baby!
