I hate to say it but last night we noticed a Caden had a cough as well as a bit of a runny nose which continued through today! Hopefully by November we will be healthy!
My Mom has been here since Sunday - thank goodness! She has been watching Caden while Dan and I work! I can't exhaust all of my sick days the first month of school! We are lucky her job is flexible enough to allow her to work from anywhere. It was funny today when I got home from work. I think Mom was a little exhausted. She hadn't showered yet and was "still" trying to get the kitchen cleaned.
We are leaving tomorrow after work to take my Mom home ... then Thursday morning we have an appointment with the Ear, Nose, Throat (ENT) doctor at Children's in Seattle. This will be a follow up to Caden's awful sleep study. I have a feeling he is going to want to remove the tonsils. Which is fine ... but I'm frustrated with myself for caving in on the fight I put up in June!
I contacted Dr. Pauli's office today. I am asking if he would be willing to review Caden's sleep study results. I'm not convinced our sleep doctor has enough experience working with achondroplasia children. Dr. Pauli's nurse is going to get back to me with an answer.
We are starting to wonder if Caden has a milk allergy ( muh, ma, mia!) (Daddy is allergic to milk) Since he has been vomiting we haven't given him milk. On night two, I noticed he wasn't snoring ... we have noticed this each consecutive night. Tonight he had his first milk bottle since getting sick ... and guess what, Caden is snoring! Is it coincidence? or is he allergic to dairy like his dad? If you have suggestions for a milk substitute that will give him equivalent nutrition I would love to hear it. We know he can't have soy ... he didn't do too well with Soy formula.
Onto happier things ... When Dan, Caden and I went to the grocery store a couple of weekends ago Dan found a way for Caden to sit in the shopping cart. Our grocery store has these small half size carts ... and Caden can sit in them. Very proudly I must say! He doesn't sit well in the front of a traditional shopping cart ... but Daddy discovered he fits well in these. Grammy went to the grocery store with us tonight, so Caden showed off his new trick :0)
