It’s been a looooong time since an update. I apologize for that, and I can only hope that we still have some readers! Jessica and I are without an internet connection at the moment. I don’t really know how long I have to post this, either. It all depends on when “linksys” realizes someone is borrowing his internets. (Although judging from the default settings, it’ll be a while.)
So, lemme give you a quick rundown of the happenings here: Namine turned one year old, that’s the biggie! Our little girl is getting big, and quick. She’s pulling herself more and more with her arms, but she’s also moving her legs, as though to crawl. Getting stronger by the day, that’s for sure. She’s eating more, and she loves cheese puffs, but we only recently found out she’s actually allergic to cheese. Maybe also to other dairy, so we’re steering clear of all of it for the time being.
Namine recently had a sleep study done to determine if she can do without the vent at night. The results came back to us just yesterday, and with good news! So last night was the first night in a long time that she slept with no mechanical intervention whatsoever. (The oxygen and humidity, in my mind, do not count.) I think she slept better than she ever did with the vent. At any rate, she did extremely well.
Lastly (at least that I can think of), Namine will soon be having her foot (feet, actually) operation soon. Should be scheduled within 2 weeks, so perhaps she’ll have it sometime early next year. After that, we’ll see how she does with putting weight on her legs – that will determine whether or not she needs further operation on her legs.
