I post fairly frequently about the health troubles that Whitney has. He immune system doesn't function nearly as well as a typical child and she's always got her hands in her mouth. That's a combination that leads to a fair share of colds, stomach flu and other contagious bugs.
The good news is that lately Whitney has been much healthier. Earlier this year we were averaging one day of sick stomach at least every other week. Colds that lead to sinus infections and a doctor's visit were happening every month. But the last month, Whitney has been feeling great. Melanie has been trying some new vitamins as well as a new warm, sterile humidifier that runs during the night next to her bed and they seem to be helping. In fact Whitney hasn't even had an ear infection lately. And that's one of the things she constantly struggles with.
We've been very grateful to have such a healthy, happy girl around the house over the last little bit and we hope things continue. It feels so good to have her healthy and able to do the things she loves. And during the tough times that may come, these good times give us something to look back on and be thankful for.
