Tummy trouble

Last night the night nurse said Reagan woke a few times, each time making a laughing sort of noise, but each time going back to sleep relatively easily (the last time she had to be patted back to sleep). Her heart rate kept jumping around all night...even while she was still asleep. Probably not the best night's sleep last night. She woke up this morning still very serious (no laughs whatsoever). She was a little spitty and looking a little groggy right before her vision therapist and school OT showed up. She was trying to doze off but they were doing their best to keep her awake, when all of a sudden she started throwing up! Lots of throw up! First clear foam, then yellow bile (and I drained a lot of yellow bile from her g-tube). She wasn't clearing it very well from her throat (I think because she was so drowsy) so she kept coughing off and on. Finally she fell asleep and rested for a little while. She woke up serious but finally sounded clear. I decided to stop her formula and went to the store and bought some pedialyte to give her for the remainder of the day. I'm not sure what exactly is going on with her GI system, but it's probably best to give it a rest. I'll start her back at half pediatlyte/half formula tonight. She did cheer up a little as the day went on and even managed to make it through PT without any problems. We've gotten quite a few laughs out of her, although they are still slightly pathetic little laughs. Hopefully she'll be feeling more herself tomorrow. And hopefully she gets a more restful night's sleep tonight.
