A Better Day


Hana had a fussy night. She also vomited a little in her bed in the middle of the night, so I had to change the sheets. I was up almost every hour and sometimes several times in an hour. I miss the days when I would let her fuss a bit and get herself back to sleep (she was actually getting pretty good at it). Maybe we will have those days again soon. For now, Hana is sleeping in the Pack N’ Play in the area between our bedroom and the living room (pocket doors are open, basically removing the “wall” between the two rooms). That way I or my mom, sleeping on the couch in the living room, can attend to her. Sometimes Paul is up too. It just depends.

We took Hana to church and the farmer’s market. It was nice to get out and see people I haven’t seen in weeks (feels like months). Everyone has been so supportive and amazing and caring. We got a surprise care package on our front step this morning from the people at St. Dominic’s. We’ve gotten lots of amazing care packages from all over. We really appreciate every single one! It truly is amazing. I will never be able to say thank you enough. Truly.

Unfortunately, Hana did vomit again in the middle of the day. This time it was a lot. My mom had and her and was calling for me to come help, but I didn’t hear her right away because the breast pump I use is so loud. Is it okay to talk so candidly about breast pumping? I spend three to four hours of every day doing it, so it is a big chunk of my daily activities. Anyway, Hana seemed okay after the vomit episodes, so I think we will wait until our appointment back at Stanford on Tuesday to bring it up again. Unless she seems to not tolerate it well, of course, but for now she is bouncing right back to her normal self.

Today we made some headway on getting a routine established and getting some necessities organized. I also took a nap (with Hana in bed next to me) it made all the difference in my day!

  1. So glad to hear things were a little more positive. Keep on, pumping on girl! Sorry about all the vomiting and sheet changes!! But the rest of the day seems really nice – church, farmers market and nap! I’m happy for those moments for you. We have all been praying for Hana everyday. Love you all. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
