We got the call back from the Cardiologist finally and the results from the Holter monitor on Addison came back as normal. This is good news and it sounds like we haven't had another SVT episode since she was 2 weeks old in the NICU. I was wondering what was taking so long to get the results so I am glad to hear all is well with her heart at this point. We do have a follow appointment for the 24th of this month. She will probably get the dosage on her Propranolol increased since her weight is going up.
I also called the pediatrician finally regarding the dosage on Addison's Zantac for her acid reflux. Thanks to a good online friend (Tkeys), we learned that the dosage should continue to go up with her weight. Addison seemed to be having more issues with the Acid, so the extra dosage should help alleviate her symptoms again.
Yesterday was a strange day. Addison slept most of the day, only waking for feedings and we tried to keep her awake but our efforts didn't work. Riley on the other hand, was a pill to say the least. She was cranky most of the day. She wanted to be held and wanted to scream and at about 7pm she screamed and cried for 3 hours straight. She finally got to sleep 11. So here is where the flip flop takes place. Because Addison had slept all day, she needed to be awake and scream through out the night while Riley went to sleep and slept until 5am this morning. So what an achievement to have one baby sleep for 6 hours for the first time, but the other baby wanted to be awake and cry. Why can't we get both girls on the same page. Didn't they each get the memo that they needed to be awake during the day (with little crying) and sleep during the night??? Maybe once we increase Addison's Zantac dosage, she will have some better nights here soon. I'm excited that we might be eliminating one of the night time feedings if this pattern continues.
