Updates on our sweet Michael

on October 27, 2013

Michael was very agitated today. Just as we were putting him to bed he projectile vomited all over Mike. I picked him up to suction him and clean him off and then he threw up all over me (I guess he wasn’t done vomiting). I think he aspirated some vomit which really scares me. So I spent 30 mins trying to get him to cough everything out of his lungs!

It took a while to calm him down – his heart rate was in the 150’s-160’s so we decided it’s probably best for Michael to sleep in our bed with me and for Mike to sleep in the guest room since he has to be up at 4:30am for work.

I don’t know what caused the vomiting but it’s got to be one of three things – 1. This is from the virus he’s had since last week, 2. He caught something at his cousin’s b-day party over the weekend (lots of kids + everyone wanting to touch Michael = potential problem), or 3. He can’t tolerate his increasing feed rate. We upped him to 105 ml/hr on Friday and maybe that’s his limit.

Either way, it has been a rough evening and I’m really tired. I hope we all sleep well and have a good day tomorrow. Goodnight everyone.
