Stomach Bug

Around 10pm last night Izzy woke up and vomited.  Let me back up.  She's had a problem with constipation that we've been working on since she was 6 months old.  She usually has a bowel movement ever 4-5 days and that's with intervention.  Our pediatrician gave us a few tips like give her benefiber, adding more greens, fluids, melon type fruits to her diet and switching white pastas to whole grain. If it progresses that give her a suppository.  We've done all that.  Last night she had a couple false starts but never had a significant poop.  She was also going on day 7 without one.  I planned to bring her to the Dr. today.  At around 10:30-11pm she vomited 4 times while we were on the way to the ER.  If you've ever been to the ER over night you know the long wait.  It took us 3 1/2 hours to bee seen.  She had an X-ray which showed POOP!  They gave her an enema, traumatic experience for the both of us which gave us 3 1/2 golf ball sized poop.  Whew!

We get her home and she's sleeping and starting to breast feed again when 7:30am massive gas and poop-splotion!  I could chalk that up as remnants of the enema.  However at 12:30, 1 and 1:30pm she's throwing up again.  There's a stomach bug that's going around which I think she's picked up.  She's finally sleeping but we might have to take another trip to the after hours clinic.  My car and house smell like vomit and I personally have experienced "The Excorist-like" projectile vomit.  I'm tired, and waiting for the other shoe to drop.  I hope baby girl gets better soon.
