Last night started off really bad, but ended up alright. When I got home Mike was in the worst mood because Jude had just thrown up ..... again. Mike had left Jude shirtless laying on his blankie just in case he threw up again. I walked over to Jude and got the biggest smile, but Mike was near tears, and I felt terrible. He sat down on the couch put his head on his hands, and said "I just cannot do this anymore". I know he didn't really mean it, but I understood his exhausted words that were pouring out of his mouth. He explained that he could see why some people are just incapable of handling special needs kids, and why they end up in homes. Let me stress he was NOT talking about Jude, he will always be with us. He was just referencing how judgemental we used to be, and how he can now see why some personalities just cannot do it. Jude was really good the rest of the night, but was grinding his teeth a lot which means he is teething for sure. SO at bed time we gave him some medicine, and his melatonin......and he only woke up TWICE! I slept for probably six hours last night, and I feel PHENOMENAL!
I appreciate all the advice I have gotten recently. We are setting up an appointment with a pulmonologist and an allergist to see about a milk aversion. We also talked to his GI specialist about the possible emptying problem, but he and our nurse highly doubt that. We really think the throwing up is an issue with Jude's inability to swallow mucus.
On a great note Emily's UIL one act play of Alice in Wonderland was one of the the top two plays chosen to move on to regionals on Saturday. She was also chosen as one of the top performers of the day. I am very proud of her!! I found a place in Grapevine that teaches acting and puts on plays at the palace theater in Grapevine. I am hoping I will be able to enroll her in their summer camp. I think she would really enjoy it.
Also, all I asked for on my birthday was a Red Velvet nothing bundt cake. Well today I came back from lunch and my boss had gotten 8 individual ones!!! We all got one in the office, and he sent me home with extras for me and the family. Jenn was even nice enough to light the top, so cute! I am blessed with a good place to work.
