It's really a guessing game on why Jude is throwing up so much. We have slowed his feeds down, adjusted volumes, and rates. We considered he is teething, considered the phloem, and the fact he doesn't swallow and cough like we do. It seems his seizures have also taken on a new look to me. Mike said they look the same to him, but Jude is doing more of the "cymbal" seizure. He throws his hands up and shakes, but this is only when he is startled. With the exception of the startle seizures I don't see much activity anymore. We know Jude has so many different focal points on where his start, so it's hard to isolate the exact cause, but it sure seems like loud noises cause them to me. I have also had several people on here suggest that we test Jude for Mitochondrial disease. I have heard they have issues with vomiting on a consistent basis. Any thoughts on this for parents that understand?
Here is Jude in his new compression vest. He loved it. It helps break the phloem up in his chest so he can expel it easier.......it didn't seem to work. I loved his jiggly cheeks. Ignore my mommy voice, haha! I make for great entertainment sometimes with my high pitch voice.
So.......it's a Monday.........all you can do it laugh!!!
