Alex is having a rough few days. He woke up Sunday Morning with a fever. He has been sneezing and coughing, but nothing major. Well Sunday he started complaining of his belly hurting. I switched to 1/2 strength formula and did a slow continuous drip all day. Yesterday, we were afraid he was getting dehydrated so after talking to the nurse at Dr. Benzick's we switched to just homemade pedialyte. he was tired, but seemed to be doing okay. This morning, I tried to go back to his normal feeding schedule, but with the 1/2 strength formula. Less then 5 minutes after hooking him up he started gagging and threw up. So we are back to a slow continuous drip. I am a little on edge, because I am not sure how long he can tolerate this without dehydration​/blood sugar issues. Please pray for me to have the guidance to make the right decisions. It is so hard to always have the responsibil​ity to make all the decisions.

T​hanks for your support,
