Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

Mommy says it is either feast or famine with me. After over 48 hours of not throwing up, it started up again today. I had been on my feeding for 4 hours and around 11:30 I started throwing up. I did it about 4 times over the course of 20 minutes or so. I had been pretty grumpy right before I got sick and was grumpy for a good hour afterwards. Mommy had Lucille give me a 2 hour break with no feeding and then introduce Pedialite again. After a few hours it was time for my synagis shot at the pediatrician's office. Since this was already cancelled once due to my ER visit, there wasn't much choice - sick or not I had to go get it. I was a pretty happy girl in the waiting room. There were lots of kids to watch and I am always fascinated by them. I cried during the shot but was smiling by the time we got back to the car. Without clothes I weighed in at 14 lbs. 13 ozs. So over the last 2 1/2 weeks I have gain 4 ozs. That's not a lot so Mommy is a little worried. She had called the GI's office and the nurse said she would pass on a message to the doctor but as of last night there was still no return call.

Since Mommy didn't have any direction on what to do about feedings, she went with what she was told the previous times and put me on 1/2 Pedialite and 1/2 Neocate for my night feedings. As I settled down to sleep, you can see neither the vomiting or the shot seemed to get my spirits down too much.
