Feeling Better

The antibiotics finally kicked in late yesterday. Clinic had said to go ahead and bring him in today but by yesterday evening, his cough was much better and he slept much better. That is until the feeding pump incident.

He gets Miralax in 250 ml of water through his g-tube when he first goes to bed which needs to go in fast, 500 ml/hr. When that's done we switch him to his formula which runs all night at 65 ml/hr. Last night we accidently forgot to change the settings so in half an hour he had already gotten four hours worth of formula. He woke up screaming and vomiting all over the place. The poor kid can't catch a break. He was finally starting to feel better from his cough and then we go and pump his stomach until it's ready to burst. We felt so terrible.

This morning he was chipper as ever, so I think his stomach is okay. We called clinic and said we weren't going to bring him in after all.

Awww, poor Seamus's tummy! Glad to hear his cough is improving though, and that he didn't need to see the Drs!
