Today was a lot. We just wanted someone to tell us Avery was fine. She felt better after a nap and some meds. A bit groggy, but better.
Yes! That’s a smile! Mom said Avery slept through the night and was content all day. Have a great weekend, Friends!
She had just had some medicine to help with the withdrawals and was feeling pretty good. Until it wore off.
Methadone is an opioid and isn’t easy to come off of. It served its purpose, but no longer “sparks joy.” Time to Marie Kondo it!
Her wean dropped again yesterday and the withdrawal symptoms have started early. She didn’t sleep well last night and has been so sad today.
Relishing each and every smile. Avery’s been doing great this weekend. She even slept through the night last night!
Avery had the best day! These are only a small sample of the pictures we grabbed today. Not only smiling, but LAUGHING.
Smiling. Talking. Laughing. Playing. All the things a baby her age should be doing. Speaking of age, she is 16 months old today!
She’s never liked being “controlled” or made to do things by her therapists, so none of this is too surprising.
