Vomit Fest 2010 update

Posted Apr 08 2010 12:00am

It turned out that Daphne caught (we think) some kind of stomach bug. Yesterday she threw up nonstop, and was having trouble keeping down even small amounts of Pedialyte. I rushed home from work ready to take her to the ER. Our pediatrician told me to give her a rest of one hour and then try again giving Pedialyte every five minutes. Thankfully that worked and she kept down over 6oz. In the evening she had 4oz and through the night we gave her more every three hours for a total of another 6oz. Since it all stayed in, this morning I tried 2oz of formula, which she took nicely and kept in. The next round of 2oz she resisted, but kept in. The third round she puked. I am working from home today in case I have to take her in for an IV. It’s hard to tell if one vomit is just Daphne being Daphne, or if the virus is still at work. In any case, I and the pediatrician are speaking with the GI this afternoon.

The good news is the washing machine is fixed. We certainly need it…
