Day 111 - Sunday 8th October 2017

I was up early again today to give Lisa a bit of a lie in..... I fed Theo his 7am bottle and he went straight to sleep on my chest again..... 😁😁

He woke back up at about 9:30am and I got his 10am bottle ready..... he had about 5ml of it and then fell asleep on me again 🙈 I gave him the rest of it through his OG tube and let him sleep on me for about an hour before I put him in his cot bed..... I took a picture of him when I put him down because he looked so cute ❤❤❤

About 5 minutes later he started to reflux and vomit..... it took me about an hour after that to get him asleep, then he wanted his next feed 🙈 He's got really bad reflux because he is still so small.... he's on Gaviscon, Ranitidine and Domperidone to try and stop it, but he still refluxes..... you just have to keep him upright all the time 🙈🙈 Lisa took real advantage of her lie in today and stayed in bed until about 2pm..... She must have really needed it! Jack played on his old PS4 in the room all morning and afternoon and I stayed with Theo who was being really nosey looking around.....

Lisa came over to the unit at about 3pm with Jack and we all did his cares and stayed with him for the rest of the afternoon..... then I went back to RMH with Jack at about 6pm to pack up the rest of the room.... it's amazing how much stuff you can gather in just short of 4 months..... only a couple of days left hopefully! Once I loaded the car up to the brim (at about 9pm) Jack and I nipped back to the unit to say goodbye to Lisa and Theo and then we set off back home.... Jack hadn't done his homework for tomorrow so I let him stay up late to do it.... we then had some supper and went to bed..... wont be long now I'm sure...... 😁😁😁 Thanks for reading, please share this blog with everyone you know to extend it's reach....
