We were discharged this afternoon after all test results came back normal. Still waiting on blood and urine cultures though.
Doctor’s suggestion for now is to eliminate the obvious dairy items in my diet and follow up with our pediatrician on Monday. (Awesome. Another appointment I have to take both kids to alone.)
Personally I think it’s acid reflux, but the doctor seemed against trying medication as the first line of treatment.
Nadia seemed better overnight and this morning. Fussy but not screaming like she was in pain as she had been the past few days.
We arrived home around 2 this afternoon and at 3 I fed her. And she screamed like she was hurting. I’m at a total loss on how to help her. And frustrated beyond belief that we’re home with no solution. Even after the doctors heard her cry and agreed it wasn’t normal newborn behavior.
I’m exhausted as I haven’t slept more than an hour at a time for the past two days. The nurses were in every hour for vitals on Nadia! Nora wants my attention and I have no idea when Eric will be home from work tonight.
Why does this feel impossible? Nora is climbing on me for attention. She is currently smearing her Doritos fingers all over the house. I’m too tired to care.
