So Far, So Good

Well the weeks not over yet, but I just thought I'd send a quick post out to say that this week is going better then last.

Our last vomitting episode was Saturday and our last fever on Monday and his stools have been consistently good. (Resp rate still high, coughing still gone.) Monday was a rough start to the week, with fevers all day and him being inconsolable again, but Tuesday he was quite the opposite and even I was impressed with how good he was ... which meant I got to enjoy a nice long visit with Amy without trying to silence a complaining boy the whole time. The rest of the week he's been more his normal self ... not the happiest child on the planet, but endurable, no more fevers, no more vomits. If he remains stable we will attempt to reintroduce his old formula, something we'd like to try before we see the GI Doctor next week (yes, we got an appointment for next week already).

So that's the run-down ... bet you didn't know I could keep it that short!! :)
