The things you think but never say.
What a week. In summation:
a little better,
thank God, you might even say it is now GOOD.
Violet has acid reflux and we're thinking is also lactose intolerant. Both of these things made the last week (or two or three) pure HELL for all parties involved. She was literally screaming morning, noon, and night. I got her in to the doctor early this week and scheduled xrays of her chest and throat which told us what we already knew -- girl has got some major reflux! Poor little thing! Now she has a prescription for Zantac and has been switched to a lactose free formula and she seems to be doing much better.
Parenting isn't for wimps. I will shamefully admit that during this very hard time I turned all of my frustration towards my husband. I was so angry...resentful...frustrated, and in my heart I pinned all of that on him. It is hard enough to get through 12 hours of non stop screaming with two people who are supporting each other. It is impossible to make it through on your own and with anger in your heart. I'm glad to say that I realized the error of my ways and have put my attitude back in check.
Yup, still worth it. :)
