We are right in the middle of steroid week, actually the steroids ended yesterday, but the effects continue long after the doses stop. Hence the lack of updates, it's taken much of my energy to keep everyone happy. In fact sometimes I fail miserably...however, this time has been a bit better. I think it is because the weather is finally nice enough to spend some time outside. If Brinley is swinging, she is happy. The steroids really do a number on her stomach and I think the motion actually helps that somehow, because when I rock her during her stomach aches she tells me to "go higher". As long as she is getting all the one on one attention she is happy as can be. Being rocked or pushed on the swing or sitting on my lap (not sharing the lap of course). It is impossible with 4 kids to give her every second of the attention, so there is a lot of crying. I feel like I am pulled in every direction and somehow seem to make everyone mad. Hmmm. Last night was hard for David. Brinley woke up at 1 and whispered from her room for her Daddy. He actually HEARD her and went in there. She, of course, wanted a snack. I had no idea any of this was happening because they were whispering the whole time. She was up until 3AM. I am hoping that doesn't repeat again, because I think tonight will be my turn, and I am still awake at almost midnight! Oh, how I hate steroids!!!
