Mommy was very excited about today because it was my first meeting with my new feeding therapist, Karen. I took a good nap this morning after my screws were turned, longer than usual actually. When Mommy came out around 12:15, Lucille was rocking me in the chair because I had been so fussy for over an hour. As soon as Mommy picked me up I started throwing up all over her - 5-6 times in 10 minutes. I was just about to end my feeding anyway, so Mommy turned it off, cleaned me up and sat with me to play for a few minutes. I felt much better afterwards. Since my feeding therapy appointment was in 45 minutes, Mommy called Karen to reschedule for next week.
I went back down for a nap and then later Lucille started me on a reduced feed of Pedialiate for four hours. No more vomiting and my mood seemed to improve. My parents decided not to turn screws tonight since I wasn't feeling well. When Mommy put me to bed, I was like my old self, rolling around playing in my crib with lots of smiles for Mommy. It took me an hour to go to sleep but it was because I was having so much fun. Mommy let Marianne know I would be on 1/2 Pedialite 1/2 formula for the next 24 hours to make sure my tummy was back to normal before introducing full feeds again. Then it was off to sleep for my parents.
