Rough Day

20 May

I was unable to do much today. I don’t know if this is what exhaustion feels like, but I felt like I was drugged for the first 1/2 of the day. Poor Kev. I couldn’t make myself move. I laid on the couch and I actually fell asleep a few times. Those that know me know that this is not normal. I have trouble sleeping. I normally could not fall asleep on the couch let alone when there is so much noise from the boys. When Josiah went down for his nap I did too and I slept hard. I didn’t want to get up, but I knew I needed to take care of the boys. Very strange day. I can usually push myself when I do not feel well, but I just couldn’t do it today. I hope I sleep better tonight and there are no cats crying in the middle of the night. Our cats apparently missed us and cried from 2-4am.

Malachi has not had a good day with his feeding tube. He has thrown up twice. He had some oranges earlier in the day. Then, he actually ate dinner tonight with us and then threw it up after his bath. I am so sad. We will have to call the doctor tomorrow. We are wondering if it is the antibiotic. We have also struggled a few times with the feeding tube. When he throws up we don’t know how much he lost so we are confused on whether we should try to feed him through the tube again or wait until his next feeding. I really can’t believe we are given this tube for him and they think we totally know what we are doing. It is really hard to figure out, the pump is a pain and when he does eat solids it is hard to determine how much we should be feeding him through the tube. Ugh.

Josiah is still running a low grade fever. He bit me a few times today and had his fingers in his mouth. I’m wondering if this is all 2 year molars. He has been having meltdowns too where he just cries and cries. This is not normal for him. I can’t wait until my sweet boys are back to normal. Malachi is so thin it breaks my heart.

We pretty much had a lazy day watching TV today. Malachi was more active. He played with toys and even went out on the deck for while to do bubbles. I hope tomorrow is better for both boys (well, and me too).
