It was a long weekend with very little sleep.  Greta was not herself.  She screamed and cried and I felt so sad for her (to the point of crying myself) and Chris and I both felt very tired.  It all climaxed Saturday night where she slept less than 4 hours.  Sunday, we all stayed in and by the end of the day, Greta’s face was looking back to normal.  And last night she slept the whole night without a peep.  Chris and I both felt soooooo great in the morning.  So rested and so happy that Greta finally got some sleep.  The mood changed slightly when we saw Greta’s face this morning… Her left side looks better But now her RIGHT eye is drooping I already called the doctor and I am waiting for a call back to see what they want to do.  Poor little girl.
