Day 89!

I had a pretty good night with Mom.....Only woke once to be fed....so I'm learning a little. It may have to do with this medicine (Ursodiol) I'm taking......this stuff makes me nauseous and Mom keeps trying different ways and times of giving it to me but they all end up with the same result.....puke out of my nose!....yuck! This makes me mad as it would you double chromosome people.....it stuffs up my nose so I can't suck on my binki and makes me snort....I'm just sooooo mad when it happens.....I fuss and fuss....for like an hour or longer. Please pray for this yucky cycle to end. So by the end of it all I am exhausted and I sleep ok then. It kind of wears on Mom but I need her with me.....someones got to hold my hair back!

Miss Ann Marie, my nurse, came by to see me today....I hadn't seen her in about 2 weeks since Miss Kathy came last week. Miss Ann Marie checked me over and said I look good...I know. She visited for a bit....my temperature was closer to normal range....in the past it's been lower so that is good....must be all the pounds I'm packing on. Now everyone thinks that it is a good thing that my color seems to be a little less yellow.....but I don't!.... with summer right around the corner, I don't want to be pasty white!.....I worked hard for this tan! Some days it looks better and then other days not so much......one of these days they may stick me again and test my blood to see if the medicine is working....I'm not looking forward to that and Mommy & Daddy know that so they will try not to do it.

I got a bath today....I used to like those things but now I like the whole "Dirty Boy" thing and don't want to get washed up....Mom makes me smell like lavender when I'm done.....Oh Mom...boys shouldn't smell like purple flowers....I guess its better than that A&D stuff though.

Tried the bottle again.....not gunna happen. Don't ask me why.....it's just not my thing. I did try that whole nursing thing.....that seems a little bit better to me but with this whole special breast milk fortified with formula I'm on, them regulating my food intake, and my heart condition, it may not be such a good idea. But it's natural and it's Mommy so naturally I like it better. I still don't mind the whole idea of not working for my food so I'll continue to put up a fuss for all alternate ideas. :) They love me.

After all that working for food, I took a nice nap and then woke again for my next feed....the puking feed. So now I'm blogging and dry heaving....great combo. I should get some rest though. Since I'm not feeling too well I'll get some pics to you tomorrow.....just wait to see what Mom did to my binkis! God Bless. Don't let the bed bugs bite!..Good Night!
