Victoria update!

Victoria has been having some issues, so I took her to the doctor today. First off, Victoria's tonsils are "kissing" - we've known since the fall that they need to come out. Unfortunately, there is only one doctor in our area who will do the surgery, but he won't do it on Vic because of her size and age. He has referred us to a doctor downstate, but with all that has been going on with Trev, we just haven't had a chance to go. Of course, as time goes on, the bigger they get, and like I said, they are now "kissing:.

So last Friday she had this episode in the car where she just blanked out, for lack of a better term. She had been eating and suddenly just stopped, didn't move a muscle, her eyes didn't move, she was just starring straight ahead and wouldn't respond to me yelling her name. After about 5 minutes, she went to sleep. I was totally freaked out. It was like this hollow empty shell with nothing inside. She had another very similar episode here at home earlier this week.

In addition to that, she complains her stomach hurts every time we sit down for a meal, she hasn't been drinking as much as she normally does, and her sleep has been all messed up.

In the end I found out she's got Strep Throat, so she is on antibiotics for that. And then the doctor has put her on Prednisone to see if we can't shrink her tonsils a lil till we can get downstate to meet with the surgeon. The doctor feels that she doesn't want to eat/drink just because of her tonsils bothering her so much.

And then because of the two episodes of her not responding and "spacing out", she is sending her to have a sleep-deprived EEG on April 1st.

There is never a dull moment here to say the least!

And on another note, at 26 months old, she is 26lbs and 34.5 inches tall.

  1. So scary...once they come out you'll notice a world of difference. She and Charlie are the same size! Hilarious! Hope you get some answers soon on the sleep study!
