Our Poor Little Angel

Last night, after going to bed like any other night, Cecilia awoke and threw up around 7:20pm. She did not have a fever but continue throwing up about every 15 minutes or so until around 1am and then the time between episodes began to increase until her final one at 4:20am. During this time I slept on the floor with her so I could be nearer to her but make it easier to clean her face every time she had to throw up. At 5:30, since she seemed to have stop, I moved her to her crib and she slept a solid two hours.

She did not have a fever all night and has only thrown up once more since 4:20 and we think that was from overdoing it (she had had water, pedialyte and breast milk and was walking around). Since there was no fever, it began almost exactly 2 hours after she finished eating dinner, and there was no apparent lead-in of pain or discomfort to this miserable night, we think it was food poisoning and the only thing she ate we can attribute this to was a newly opened pack of hotdogs - which have now been thrown out.

She is now napping and has been a real trooper. Would that all of us could be such good patients. She has barely cried through any of it and then it was mostly because I was trying to reposition her off her back and wipe her face.

Please whisper a prayer for our little Cecilia as she tries to get back on her feet.

UPDATE: Cecilia seemed to be improving yesterday as she kept down some baked chicken breast and some mashed potatoes but this afternoon she threw up again so I called her doctor and spoke to the nurse. She said it sounds like Cecilia has a gastrointestinal virus (which would account for the little to no fever) and to see how she is in a day or so. She should not vomit after today but the diarrhea is expected to continue a bit longer. Please say a prayer for our little patient.

More Teething

I thought that when Cecilia was crying and stomping her feet and wandering at random this morning she might actually be throwing her first real tantrum. Shame on mommy. We discovered this evening she is actually teething....again. But this time she is getting her first molars. Yikes! Gotta watch out for those choppers!
