It has been seven days since the green snot came into our house. Alex is still very congested, still not sleeping well, and throws up when he is flat on the floor from all the drainage. On Friday I got sick, but as of yesterday I am feeling a little better. Still blowing my nose, but I feel fine, other than the lack of sleep that we are getting.
I'm sure Alex will lose some weight because during the day most of what he gets is pedialyte, he does get his night feed of Peptamin jr, but that is only half of what he needs. I am able to keep him hydrated, and right now I am loving me some feeding tubes!!!! We would defiantly be in the hospital for fluids if we didn't have the feeding tube.
Friday we go to the doctor for his 1 year well baby, although I don't think he will be getting any shots since he is sick, but at least she can check him out. His breathing has been well, I do give him a breathing treatment in the morning, but he has never been wheezy.
Thank God for suction machines and feeding tubes!!!!!
