We had Ben's 9 month wellness check-up yesterday morning. We had a regular morning and I put him in the car to go to the pediatrician's office. As I pulled into the parking lot, he vomited all over the car seat and the car and himself. I wiped him down as best I could and we went in. The doctor couldn't see anything wrong with him, but he's probably got a tummy bug since he threw up again while we were there and several more times yesterday. Thank heavens for a steam cleaner for the car and the carpets at home. Needless to say, we'll miss playgroup again today. Other than being sick, he only gained 5 ounces in the last 3 months and he dropped to the 3rd percentile. We had to go to get a ton of lab work done to see why he isn't growing. I think he eats plenty and the doctor agreed. Now we're anxious to see what the lab work says. They took 6 or 7 huge vials of blood and it took 3 of us to hold him down to do it. Poor kid.
