Another appointment...

William is still vomiting. Less than before, but still. He has puked his dinner feed for the past 4 days. We have been giving him his reflux medication which seems to be helping for the most part. But I still don't like the fact that he is getting sick.

I called his GI doctor to tell her that he is still vomiting and she wants to see him. We have an appointment this afternoon at 2:20.
And because I thought you would like a picture of one of the kids, I give you this:
The lighting is completely off, but I don't feel like fixing it in photoshop! Shoot me! But this was taken last night when Will was watching tv.
*UPDATE* We just got back from the doctor appointment. The doctor thinks that the vomit is being caused by reflux. She didn't really seem too concerned that he is still vomiting. Her view was that he has gotten a lot better and not throwing up 3 times a day on once. Plus he had gained almost an entire kilo. He weighed 23 pounds today. She said that if the vomiting continues then to call them again. We made an appointment in 2 months. I don't know...I just don't think that it is healthy to vomit on a daily basis, even if it is only once a day. Call me crazy!

That's a fun picture. What was Will watching? I hope your little man feels better soon.

Ah, man! Thinking of the little guy and I hope everything goes well. Sounds very frustrating! Max went through something similar a little less than a year ago. He was throwing about about once a day and then all of the sudden changed to throwing up all of his g-tube feeds. We went to GI and had an upper GI, change his formula and diet, and what did the trick was doubling the dose of his reflux medication and taking him off a medication he was on. It took us about three months to figure it out.

The pic is too cute though!!

Just wanted to make sure you received my emails I sent yesterday. I have been having troubles with people receiving my emails.

Take care!

Poor Will. :-( I hope they can get it figured out and help the little guy. You're probably in the waiting room right now. Thinking of you!

Vomiting is just so frustrating - all that food that their bodies need coming back up. And it is so unpleasant for Will. Sigh. I hope you find a way forward in this. Hugs to Will.

Poor Will, I hope it's nothing big...hey do you want to brin Caroline over while you go to his apt.? I know it can be hard to brin her along and deal with him. Let me know, we'll be home all day....

Your totally NOT crazy! Vomitting once a day cannot be fun for our kiddos. I remember those days, and I was told the same thing. Emma would puke 4-5 times many days, and they would say to me, "Well, she's not losing weight so I think she's doing OK". It drove me nuts! She might have been OK....but, I was losing it!

I hope Will stops vomitting soon:).
