Today was Sam's transfusion at CHildren's. This was the toughest day we have had in quite a while. It took three times to get the IV and he was crying the whole time. I don't think he was feeling well today and was running a low grade temp or that is at least how he felt. He was quite subdued. He kept saying "Ouch Mommy" And looking at me to make them stop. It was breaking my heart. How do you deal with that. Your child looking at you with tears in their eyes saying Ouch mommy and wanting you to hold them, and you just don't pick him up or comfort him, you just allow them to keep hurting them. IT WAS A BAD DAY!!!!
On a better note the biopsy results came back normal. Praise God!!! The doctor talked about putting Sam on long term antibiotic therapy and a variety of meds to help with the stooling but I am leary of doing that. I want to talk to his primary and see what she thinks. We also have an appointment with the motility specialist next month so maybe I should wait to talk to them?
Alright for all you mommys out there: HOW DO I GET SOPHIA TO EAT?!?!?!? I have been giving her cereal for over a month now on a daily basis and all she does is cry, I have tried all the types of cereal, made with breast milk, formula and even water, warm and cool. I have tried all the vegetables and some fruits and all she does is cry. What do I do???? I am so frustrated and any advice would be welcome. Today I was dipping her pacifier in the food and then letting her suck on the paci that worked but that is RIDICULOUS!!! Help please
