Well, I figure I'd update the blog today since we've had some more news. Nothing to horrible but Abby had her first "throwing up" experience. For those of our readers who don't have children and might not think this is too eventful ... I will explain.

For the past few days Abby hasn't been eating very well (hard to believe considering how much she likes her peas) and it was even a struggle to get her to eat 4-5 oz of bottle when she usually eats 6-8 oz. So, she hasn't been eating well and on Tuesday evening Abby threw up 5 oz of formula while she was sleeping. Obviously this woke her up and she started screaming. I would have started screaming to if there was regurgitated formula in my eyes and running down my neck!

The next day she was very lethargic and not acting like herself because she had been crying periodically throughout the night and didn't sleep very well. Not to mention she hadn't been eating well for the past few days so she didn't have a lot of energy to burn. So, after throwing up again after her Wednesday morning bottle, Jason took her to the doctor who proceeded to tell us that she had a virus. (What a waste of money for some old geezer of a doctor to spend five minutes with her and diagnose her with a virus.)

Anyways, long story short, Abby is doing better now after some TLC and constant feeding every 2 hours of about 2-3 oz of bottle.

Poor little sweet-heart. At the least we know that from this experience she is building up her immune system and hopefully won't be sick for a little while longer.

No pictures as of right now but we will post some new ones within the next few days.

  1. Sorry to hear you have experienced you first throw up sickness. Emma never was a thrower upper even with all her belly issues. Tyson isn't either so...I feel for you though!!!
