Just the bare facts...

Last night about 9:30, Charlie started not liking his food so bad that he started spitting it up. He kept spitting and even sometimes it got in his throat that he seemed to stop breathing. After Jared and I suctioned several times the nurses came in to check and Charlie did his trick for them. The nurse, Amy, immediately called for a dose of anti medic to stop the vomiting. She stopped the feeding, suctioned him really well, administered a suppository, and then after a dose of adavan he settled down. About 11:30 he went to sleep and decided to have a good nights sleep. However about 4:00 he awoke and started a little fussing and had a huge blowout diaper - great! At 6:30 the nurse started him on Pedialite and he is sleeping soundly right now.
Dr. Walker (I think that is his name), the cochlear doctor, just came in to see Charlie before he goes to the meeting to discuss Charlie and Cochlear implants. Dr. Such-Neibar joined him and they talked just to gather info. After Dr. Walker left, Dr. Such-Neibar talked about Charlie's feeding and noted that it was probably normal to regress after surgery and now that he has pooped real good we will go forth. She suspected that the medication given during surgery on Friday was the cause of Charlie's system backing up and now that he has got his system going, he should start seeing improvements in digestion with his formula. What a doll he is and I loved spending the night with him. Grandma, Kathi

I'm praying for a good meeting today too, that Char's tummy gets feeling more comfortable, and for another 'Charlie step' today. Love and many prayers.

I am constantly amazed by the love and support this family has for one another. You are all truly a blessing to each other. Can you imagine Angel, Rob, Britton and Charlie going through all of this alone? Keep up the good work. There are many people in the world praying for you all.

What a lively night! Sounds like he just had to get some stuff out of his system, hopefully today progesses more smoothly. It will be good to hear what they think about the cochlears. Good luck today Coop!
