Day Eight (of Twenty-Eight)

What She Wore: Pink sweat pants; red t-shirt. We’re working on the house today, so I’m in my grubbies.

So many nice people commented on Charlie’s bottle strike that I thought I should give an update.

We called the on-call neuro, and he said that if he’s taking solids than it probably isn’t related to the medicine. Instead, it’s more likely a developmental situation. He instructed us to mix his solids with lots of liquid and bring him to the ER if he shows signs of dehydration or a severe digestive problem (like black or bloody stool).

So, we’ve been eating tons of solid food, and it’s a big hit! Chicken noodle actually gained smiles. We resorted to just squirting some medicine/formula down his throat and he swallows that just fine. I guess it’s sucking he’s opposed. As is usually the case with Charlie, he tell us what he wants and when he wants it.

  1. I’m glad he’s eating!
    (And that I got you interested in politics this year!)

  2. I got two people to text me at the dinner, and I just got home–it’s a definite win for Obama! yay! Don’t worry–no matter how well she does, if Obama gets the nom., it won’t be Hillary as his runningmate. I’m putting my money on Edwards as VP…and hoping for it, too. 😉

    It’s always such a relief to find something that works. Glad you did!
