Better than superglue to the eye...
This Saturday, we had our first trip to the emergency room. Yay! Ella had been spitting up more than usual for the last week. And... that afternoon, she had blood in it. She seemed to feel fine, but it was a little scary. Of course, Brady was out of town - and he had the car. Things like this just don't happen at convenient times. So, I took a bus to the nearest emergency room. By the time we got there and were seen, Ella was just tired, but otherwise normal. I had the displeasure of witnessing her first rectal exam (she HATED it!!!!!) and watched several nurses hold her down and poke her in her hands and feet, trying to get enough blood for a specimen. The poor thing. It was so sad. I cried and cried. After about 5 hours, Brady showed up. And an hour later, at 12:30 a.m., we were able to go home. They couldn't find anything wrong with her, and a follow up appointment gave us the same results. She probably just has reflux, so we will be giving her Zantac for the next few weeks.
Ella is her same chubby happy self. She's weighing in at 15 pounds, 7 oz now. And still getting cuter every minute.
P.S. The guy behind us at the emergency room was there because he accidentally put superglue in his eye, thinking it was Visine. I'm thankful Ella just had reflux :-)
