Aiden was a preemie (although he weighed over 7lbs.) and gave us quite a scare during his first feeding with the nurse in the hospital. He choked on his formula and stopped breathing for a bit and was put on oxygen for the next two days. I had to leave him at the hospital once I was released which was very hard for me. He had been right there with me for the last 9 months. From the time he came home from the hospital we figured out he would need a little extra care in the feeding department. We couldn't figure out a formula that would work best for him. We took a few trips to the children's hospital in Pensacola for some testing and many visits with his pediatrician and finally found his special formula (expensive but seemed to work best). He still would get sick and not be able to hold down his feedings and we quickly learned to always carry a towel with us because majority of the time, his food/formula would come back for one more visit. It is sometimes hard for people to understand or grasp when we try to explain how he gets sick unexpectedly and we often times find ourselves apologizing to the tables next to us in restaurants who has the pleasure of being around during those times he does get sick. Over the years and with the doctor’s help we now know what foods he is allergic to and what we need to avoid. Through the years, I have gotten use to getting puked on, running to the nearest toilet and even slipping in it when we can't get there fast enough. However, for the past three nights, Aiden has gotten sick during the middle of the night. We have changed numerous sheets, gone through tons of clothing, washed Mo a few times and taken showers at Midnight. I am thinking this can't be from his food... is it a stomach bug?? He is fine during the day but then come night time... it starts. All I do know is that it is now affecting our sleep and we can not get use to this.
Poor little Aiden after a long night of getting sick. Now... don't judge my outfit. I must remind you that it had been a long night. All Aiden kept saying was "please... call my doctor. He will answer the phone. I need him." Pitiful!! He sure does love his doctor with the bow tie!!
He is finally getting some much needed rest!
I made an appointment for him to see his doctor tomorrow. Hopefully we can get through tonight without any issues.
Ethan is also not feeling well. He seems to be getting the flu so he will be joining us at the doctor's tomorrow. Although, his teacher did email me and that front tooth finally fell out!! This is helping him get through his day. He has wanted to lose a tooth at school so he could visit the nurse and get the special tooth holder to bring home.
