A few weeks ago Serenity started behaving really oddly. She would scream for hours every day about various things, often because she was hungry and didn’t know what she wanted to eat. She had trouble hearing us, and would often throw things and hit people. It seemed like nothing we did would serve to calm her and it was very frustrating after many days of it.
At one point I spent some time researching the symptoms of a brain tumor, because her behavior was so unusual. We wondered if it was a delayed effect of the chemo, but that didn’t make sense since she has been off chemo since the end of July. Finally it occurred to us that she might have an ear infection and so Phil took her in. She does have a double ear infection, poor girl.
Since we have had her on the antibiotics things have calmed down a lot. She is more like her normal sweet self. She complains of leg pain sometimes - almost always the same leg - which makes me worry about AVN. The clinic has yet to do a follow up EKG which I am anxious for as well. But overall, things are good and we are enjoying the days with our sweet children.
