Tuesday, April 1, 2008 - Update

Whenever we have trouble getting Olivia to sleep, Ryan sits her down and teaches her all about computers. . .

It works every time.

Olivia had a doctor's appt today for her last Synagis shot of the season. She handled it like a pro, as usual, and we're proud to say that her weight is up to 11 lbs 3 oz. This is fantastic considering her problems with vomiting and the fact that she started out at 1 lb 1.5 oz. Speaking of which, she hadn't had a major vomiting episode for over a week. . .until today, but I take full responsibility for that one. I should know better than to give her the Prevacid AFTER her bottle. Anyway, I think we finally found something that works. I want to give her a little more time before I start bragging about it, but the absence of vomiting has made our day to day life much easier.

I was going to do this big April Fools joke on all of you, but it has gotten to be so late in the day I was afraid that some of you wouldn't read it until tomorrow. Oh well. . .maybe next year. . .

My GI doctor told me to give the previcid 15-20 min prior to a feed - prefer in morning since it works all day. She said that if you give it with food then the drug won't work. Just thought I would share this incase they didn't tell you how or when to take it.

I can't believe her weight gain. She's doing so good!

Keeping my fingers crossed that your "trick" is still working. Love the rag doll pictures! She looks so comfortable oddly enough! CUTIE!
