We went back to urgent care today. We pulled into the parking lot for Matthew’s first haircut and as I was getting him out of his seat, he started vomiting all over. We called the doctor and made an appointment and were told to go to urgent care if he kept throwing up. He did. Two hours later, we were on our way back home with a tired, but happy, baby. They retested his liver enzymes today and they are going down, which is what we’re expecting and wanting to see.
We’ve been using bottled water for M but had to cool some heated bottled water because it was too hot – so we grabbed an ice cube out of the freezer. We thought those cubes were made before our Freon leak. This happened again with oatmeal so we thought maybe he’s allergic to the oatmeal, but the doctor says no and that he thinks it’s our water.
The geothermal unit is being replaced next week.
I am exhausted! B is exhausted! M is exhausted, but is sleeping peacefully right now!
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do.
I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

Oy. It’s a good thing that his little body is so good at stopping and expelling this stuff! It seems like he’ll be well soon.

You poor guys! I can’t imagine the stress you are feeling. I’m glad that things are continuing to improve for M. Hopefully all of this will be behind you very soon.

Holy crap! Even the ice cubes? Poor little chicken! Glad he is on the mend!

Man you sure haven’t had an easy time with this, have you?? At least he sure looks happy in that picture!
