Continued issues..

The saga of Elijah's ear continues! We had discontinued the Valium on Monday (doctor's orders) after seeing him get super loopy. This morning he was stumbling around the house and began vomiting again.  He hadn't done that since Saturday. His body obviously still needs the medication, so Dr. L told us to resume at a lower dose than before. He threw the dose up instantly. I remembered from the hospital that eyes closed equals happy tummy, so I put him in my bed, gave him another dose and asked him to close his eyes. He has been asleep for over an hour and the medicine stayed down, phew. When he wakes up we will try water and crackers. If we can't keep those down, guess where we will be heading back to?!
