Turning the corner?

The Boy fell asleep at 6:30PM last night, and - much to my amazing surprise - he slept through until 7:30 this morning! Then, after 90 minutes of playing and eating, he fell asleep for another 2 hours. He's been awake for about a half hour, just lying in bed, playing with a new toy (picked up on clearance at Big Lots), and pooping - three poops since he woke up at 7:30.

I really hope that he's turning the corner, here. His blood pressures have been consistently good, hovering around 100 over 50, which is a good range for a two year old. His potassium level this morning was 4.8, which is the best that it's been in a week or so. With luck, after such long and restful sleep, he'll be able to lower that even further.

Say a prayer or two, that we'll be able to say that July 26 was the end of this bad period and the start of a new 5-month period that is uneventful!

I certainly hope so!

That is great news! I'm so happy to hear things are moving in the right direction. The Boy needs to go home and get on that swing set, rather than getting meds up his butt!

I hope it's a sign of things to come! Let's get this ball rolling. :)
