#10

this was last night. in the ER. because miles screamed all day yesterday. and of course i didn't call the dr. until 10 pm and they told me to take him in.  we were thinking ear ache, flu, sore throat...something.... nope. just
acid reflux.
the poor kid didn't sleep all day, and by the time we were seen in the ER, it was 1 am.  and they gave him maalox. MAALOX. who would even think you could just give a baby maalox? oh well. it was magic. and he went right to sleep. so i am tired. and that is why you are not getting a fact today. just a cute picture of my baby who is adorable even when he's sick.

Oh Kali Im so sorry, but glad everything is okay. He is so cute even when he is sick! I can see me doing what you did and not calling until the end of the day just thinking everything will be alright. Hope you get some rest!

LL said...

you poor thing! those late nigh ER trips are so draining. The emotional part of it is the worst!
Hope he's sleeping well today (hope you're sleeping well)

Jenn said...

Oh my. He is stinkin adorable. Glad he's feeling better!

Kali that is the cutest picture!! I'm sorry you had to go to the ER. That is not a fun place. The only way I can relate to this one is I've never been to the ER or taken anyone to the Emergency Room. I hope everything is better.

Taking your kids to the ER is the scariest thing! I hate it! So sorry he has acid reflux...Lucas had that when he was little too, no fun!

He seriously is so cute! I like him a lot. We should do a pre arranged marriage for Miles and Shaylie. I think it would work out great. Well I'm glad it wasn't awful news at the ER. This is a fun thing you're doing. I enjoy it very much. I need something like this so that I can post everyday rather than for Halloween and then never again. Silly me.

Well, I think that's a fact. Watch me relate to it...

You have a cute baby and I had FIVE cute babies.

I'm also a big fan of Maalox. It's magic and that's the truth. Never gave it to one of my cute babies though. Who'd of thought?

Oh man... poor little guy. I'm glad you guys were able to help him feel better! I still get anxious making a trip to the Dr's office, let alone the ER. You're a great little Mom... keep being awesome!

I can definitely sympathize with Miles and acid reflux. I made the mistake of eating some "killer mexican food" from one of Salt Lake's premier mexican restaurants yesterday and even though I didn't end up in the ER, I definitely could have cried the rest of the day. A major dose of Mylanta solved my problem when I got home last night. Great stuff when you feel like dying. I hope Miles and you are doing better today. Love, Auntie M.

Poor baby! Although depite his misery, he's extremely adoreable!

*I've never had acid reflux. Just very small cases of heart burn, and I never really knew if it actually was heart burn.

So sad :( Doesn't it make you feel so bad when your baby is crying and there really isn't much you can do to help him?!? I'm sorry, but glad he is feeling better. He is so adorable :)
