We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Our first Christmas with Olivia was a busy one, but a really great one! We spent Christmas Eve at my grandparents’ house, Christmas day at my parents’ house, and had a final Christmas celebration yesterday. Olivia got completely spoiled, but she loves all the gifts she got! Olivia wasn’t entirely sure what to do with the gifts, but she did like to pull on and eat the paper.
On the medical side of things, Olivia had another disappointing appointment on the Friday before Christmas. We are trying to get an appointment for a second opinion. The GI doctor we see thought we should just put Olivia on a continuous feed from a pump all day through a tube that bypasses her stomach and goes directly into her intestines. We just don’t see how that will help. She also told us that there was no way her medications were causing her vomiting problems. We thought otherwise, as did Olivia’s primary doctor. I have since had her blood pressure medication changed. She was getting 10 ml three times daily of the med she was on. That’s an ounce a day! They switched her to a different med, and she only gets 2ml twice a day. So far, since the switch, no vomiting! (Knock on wood!!!)
Enjoy a few photos from our Christmas celebrations!
