The saga of the sick baby continues and get worse:( See 9 month posting)

I will give a timeline as to how things have been going:(
  • 02/15  
    • 11:00pm  Ryder and I head to the ER after finding a fairly significant amount of bloody mucus in his diaper.
  • 02/16 
    • 1am Ryder was discharged from the ER after a few blood tests and stool sample.  We were to call the GI Monday morning for results and consult
    • 6pm Ryder started vomiting
  • 2/17 
    • 11am I  headed back to the ER with Ryder...he had not eaten since 6 pm the night before, frequent vomiting, low grade fever, sever dehydration.  They cathed him for a urine sample, and attempted to get an IV in
    •  3:30 pm I was told he will be admitted.
       I called Jay and my parents so someone could come to the hospital to sit with me
    • 4:00 Jay joins us at the ER
    • 9:30pm we finally get to our room
  • The next few days a re a blur of IV changes, blood draws and attempts at different formulas none of which he would drink
  • 2/21 

    • 12pm we are sent home on Flagyl and Pro- biotcs and back on the ProSobee with a diagnosis of C-Diff (again) and a possible Milk/Soy/ Egg protein allergy.  We were scheduled to see the GI on Tuesday (2/26)
