Vacation and Vomit
Eliza and I spent the past few days off on a nice mini-vacation with my old roommate visiting our college, William and Mary, and seeing some old friends. Eliza did pretty well with the change of environment, except for the mini-hunger strike she went on. Despite getting only about 600 calories a day she had boundless energy. Of course the people on the return flight wished she had no energy as we sat on the runway for an hour while Eliza screamed non-stop. Did I mention she hates being confined in a car seat, stroller, baby sling, etc?
Despite hardly eating, we had a vomit-free vacation. Of course the return home is another story. Since getting back we have had a nightly vomit-fest. It usually occurs about an hour after her nine p.m. bottle once she has been asleep. Despite Eliza's GI insisting that her reflux is under control with her current dose of Prevacid, I suspect this vomit-fest is reflux related. She does not vomit this particular formula during the day and the vomiting starts about 3 to 4 hours after her last yogurt which is supplemented by Benecalories. I am doubtful it is the Benecalories causing this since the vomiting doesn't start until several hours later. So tomorrow the GI shall be getting yet another phone call from me.
