Another night of vomiting means another day in the hospital. Sophie vomited again...ugh!!! It just doesn't make sense. It is only once a day and it is right after dinner. At least this time it was not as much as the last 3 nights. Then again, we barely fed her today. Breaks my heart. She barely has any energy. She is still on IV liquids so she is getting what she needs but she wants to eat so bad.
Even though she is vomiting, we still started her on a liquid suspension of Depakote (Valporic Acid) that is given orally. She is getting 150mg 3x/day. The liquid suspension is absorbed much quicker than the Depakote sprinkle capsules. Plus we mix it with a bit of Sprite and she doesn't mind the taste. She gets it as soon as she wakes up in the morning, later in the afternoon and right before she goes to bed. So this dosing schedule does not interfere with her vomiting routine.
I am not sure what or when they will start the liquid suspension of Dilantin.
Brandon is taking the night shift (NaNaw took it last night) and I am off to bed.
