Micah’s sweet dreams at Ikea:)
We took Amelia back to the G.I. Doctor to see what he thought at the end of the 10 days he had suggested. It was a strange visit to say the least and he really didn’t say too much and definitely did not show any excitement about Amelia’s progress. The good thing is that he did not try to push the G-tube on us, the bad thing is that he did not have any thoughts at all so we are just going to go on doing what we are doing, increasing the amount on intake as Amelia gets faster with her feedings…and just TRUST. Trust in God’s care and that He has entrusted Amelia to us and we are totally equipped to take care of her with Him as our strength and guide.
He did mention that the upper G.I. Series Amelia had done a few weeks ago showed she has reflux but throwing up after her feedings really has not been an over all problem with her. I don’t think she has thrown up a feeding once in the last month. So even though we will give her the medication prescribed for reflux, it seems doubtful this will bring about much change.
On a better note, Rick took the day off from work yesterday so that we could go to the appointment together. He was, as always, the devoted dad while he had the chance to be with the kids more…he read them stories in the backyard, played with them and just took advantage of the time he had at home.
Last night, we went to Ikea and not only did we enjoy walking the place for a few hours but we also bought a NEW COUCH! A leather couch we’ve been eyeing for a while now since our friends the Hoyts bought the same one several months ago. This is only the second piece of furniture we have ever bought for ourselves so it is exciting! It was also a night where we could celebrate all the blessings God has brought about this past week and a half.
