Hey everyone! I am one exhausted Mamma! Ava (21 mos but only 5 hospital free mos) is neurologically intact but has a TON of diagnoses stemming from being a 29 weeker. For about 2 months she has been having night terrors and has been self mutilating ( ripping her stoma open and causing the sight to hemorrhage, biting, hitting, finding walls to scratch herself on ripping her tubes off and out ). Her night terrors are so bad she looks like she is having seizures and she is covered in sweat. She will be seeing a child psychologist next month but I want to help her...any suggestions? When she isn't awake with the terrors she is whimpering all night long. please...help us...
