Revolving Nurses and Missed Medicine -- Originally Published December 10, 2007

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Just a quick note today. Michael had a great day -- he even took some nice long naps. A lot of this has to do with his favorite nurse, A____, who still works with us on Mondays. She is still by far his favorite, and he relaxes so much when she is in the house. He is generally a happy and patient baby, who likes to play with anyone, but the revolving door of nurses since A____ had to leave has left Michael a bit adrift. He no longer keeps to any particular schedule, and he refuses to stay asleep for long unless A____is in the room.

Today Michael accidentally missed a dose of his tummy medicine, and boy did we notice a difference. His stomach took forever to empty (don't ask how I know that), and he was burping back food immediately after he ate -- something he hasn't done in several days. I guess we know that the medicine is working! Now we just need to be sure he gets it before every big meal. While we are on the medicine, Michael can have almost all of his daytime meals on his old schedule, with only a little bit left over for a snack two hours later. (Without the medicine, the meals and the snacks were roughly the same size.)

I guess when the pre-op antibiotics start, we will be able to see how much of an issue they present to Michael's tummy. (Hopefully none!)

We're very late with our special thanks list. So, here goes -- special thanks to Megan's family who spent Thanksgiving with us (our first at our own home). It was a nice adventure, and we appreciate y'all finding your way around our kitchen to make all that great food. Special thanks, too, to Debbie C for bringing Maggianos for dinner last week (yum!). And last but not least, special thanks to the B____s for helping us get our very first live Christmas tree this weekend.

We can hardly wait to see everyone in the New Year!
