Conway has been given his November Synagis vaccination to protect against RSV, a dangerous illness that cardiac children are more succeptible to. Since he is so big, he had to get two shots, one in each thigh. Jen, his nurse, said that this shot burns going in. He cried and didn't like it one bit.
He got weighed and his weight has dropped. She was here on 11/1 and his weight was 21 lbs. 2.5 oz. Today it was 20 lbs, 7 oz. She isn't too concerned since he doesn't seem to be throwing up more than before and she said before we get all alarmed we'll see what he weighs next week. I told her that Dr. Brady has adjusted his feeds and he now receives 200 mL less per day with the new schedule.
This morning there was some blood in his vomit. It was bloody mucuous, mostly brown, but a little pink. It was a small amount. I saved the wash cloth and pajamas that it had gotten on and showed the nurse. She said it was probably just some irritation either in his esophagus or his stomach. We are to watch it and call the doctor if it persists or increases.
