Asa pukes every night! How is that for an opening line!! And I mean he pukes, not spit up! We kinda get used to it. The Reglan helped for a while but now it doesn't seem to be helping.
So tonight Asa took 2oz of Pedisure from his straw cup, sat the cup down and puked. Not so odd here, unfortunately. But when I cleaned him up he felt warm and limp. His eyes were red too. That is kinda odd. I took an underarm temp and it was normal. We almost always have to get a rectal temp to be accurate with him though. Since he'd been inside all day there was no reason for him to be so warm unless it was a fever.
So the night progressed to lots of dry heaves and noodle boy. He was oh so crabby too. He did doze on the couch for a while but I woke him up when I tubed in 2oz of Pedilyte. He kept that down for a hour so I tubed another 2oz. Hopefully he won't get sick with that. I'll probably try to tube 2oz more in before I go to bed. Unless he is sleeping on his tummy. Then I'll come up with plan B.
And if all of that wasn't enough.... I emailed Houston today and found out Asa's IgG level was low. I've heard talk of that but I'll have to read more cause if I read ahead in the book, I get confused! It is nothing urgent so next time we go to Houston we can add immunology to the list along with GI. You see how this works don't you! I don't play card games but it seems like we already have a gin rummy or full house or a straight or something at Vandy so now we are collecting specialist from another hospital, heck, even another state!!! ROOK!
And finally, Vandy called to schedule a 3 day EEG! 3DAYS!!! Dr. K said 23 hour EEG. I think our neuro is mad at me!!! First I tell him that 2 other specialist want to look further into something that is HIS specialty, then I push for the inpatient option instead of his suggested offer of an at home test, so he gives me what I ask for and then a spanking on top!! The scheduler did say that if they got the info they needed before the 3 days were up, we'd be discharged.
Now tell me if I'm wrong about wanting this EEG done inpatient. It takes us 3 hours, one way, to get to Vandy. So we drive up, get him hooked up and drive back. The test measures for 2 days and then we drive up, unhook him and drive back. It would be nice to test in his normal environment cause I bet I could take him right to some of his triggers but that is a lot of travel and what if I screw something up and it doesn't read. Shouldn't someone be standing over me to make sure I don't mess up! Asa had an EEG at 4 months but at this time he was bad shape and didn't even use his hands much less raise them to his head. Now one of Asa's favorite past times is scratching his head! Boy, this isn't gonna be fun. So what do you think is the lesser of the two evils.....test at home and drive or test at Vandy and be inpatient? Maybe I should just flip a coin!
