Poor Blake

My poor little buddy has had quite the day. And my mom has had quite the day trying to take care of him. And I have had quite the day listening to my mom complain about ev-ery-thing. ;)

We're not totally sure what's going on with him. But Mom said, after not going to bed till almost 11 last night (Mommom's fault), that he got up at 4:30 and was up till 6, and then woke back up at 8:30. And he didn't sleep for more than a few minutes at a time all day long. Which was very odd for him because he sleeps through the night and takes short naps after all his bottles. He screamed and screamed all day, and there was no consoling him. He sometimes wasn't hungry at his usual 3 hour mark, either, which was also very odd considering he'd actually been hungry after 2 1/2 hours the past few days.

At first we thought he was getting an ear infection, but after Mom gave him a bath, she cleaned his ears and they didn't seem infected and the cleaning didn't bother him. I mean, yes, he's teething, but he's been teething for a long time now, and he's never been like this. But he's not running a fever or anything, so we just don't know.

Chelsea was super mad that Mom didn't go to the hospital today, but she told her "You have nurses there to take care of you. I'm the only one that can take care of him. Be a grown up." I love that my mom isn't just sitting back and taking her crap anymore like she used to. She's having a procedure tomorrow where they'll stick a tube down her throat to her stomach to look at the ducts in her liver and make sure nothing is clogged or wrong there. She was SO MAD that she had to have another procedure, but my mom finally convinced her that hello! it's better to get it checked out now than to come home and have an emergency. I guess I shouldn't be too mean, though. She was without her mood stabilizer because the hospital didn't have it in their pharmacy, so she was nutso Chelsea. Normal Chelsea is at least a little bit rational. :) But yeah, she's fine, and if this liver check turns out normal, I think she's coming home tomorrow night. I'll let you know. :)

  2. It's so hard when we don't know why babies aren't feeling good... I pray whatever it is gets better soon. Poor pumpkin!
