Sophie was dizzy yesterday afternoon around 5 when I picked her up from school day care. She was dizzy most of night, and is dizzy again today. It's day 11.
The doctor said to watch her over the weekend and call back Monday. I'm not ready to check her into the hospital yet, but we're close. She's eating and drinking and only dizzy when she tries to walk. And she's not vomiting, or dizzy when she lies down. She's been on prednisone for 4 days--it's starting to make her face puffy--and I would have thought it would work by now if it was going to.
It's just too long.
I got a taste of normalcy yesterday, and got to run almost 3 miles. It was heaven.
Unfortunately, the last 5 minutes of the run were plagued by worry because day care had called me on my cell to tell me she wasn't feeling well and I needed to come and get her. I carry my cell phone with me when I run so I was able to talk with them and ran the last 5 minutes as fast as I could to get back to my car. I knew she wasn't in life-threatening danger or anything, but I felt awful that I couldn't run faster to get to her more quickly.
She's with my mom now, and the poor baby is upset because I've told her she can't go to her friend's birthday party tomorrow. It's at a state park an hour away and I just can't handle having to carry her everywhere and not let her run around and play with the other kids. And if she's better tomorrow, then that's great. Maybe we'll go. But I'm not holding out for it.
This is such a roller coaster. We were all so happy yesterday, thinking it was over. I am getting really worried it's something other than complicated migraines. And I'm not a worrier--I cope and get through. But it's just too much, too long.
We'll see what the weekend holds. I'll post updates if things change, one way or another. You all are just as important to me as my "real life" friends. Thank you for all your prayers and support.
