Prayers for Jean Alex...advise?
Alex has been acting a bit sick lately. It worries me because it can be a sign of neurological problems. He has been vomiting, a few days ago (a lot), and now just once in a while (after eating). He does not have much of an appetite either. He is still eating, and doesn't have signs of dehydration, but he is not back to his normal, healthy appetite. He acts almost as if he is teething, and just plays when I try to give him his bottles. He is going to be 5 months old soon, and I wonder if this is what is going on. He has been drooling like crazy since last month, and chews on hands, blankets, toys, etc. He doesn't have any bumps on his gums or tell tale signs of teeth coming through. On top of the loss of appetite and occasional vomit/gag he has had a bit of runny and SMELLY poop. If he continues this way after the weekend, I will call the doctor, but right now he seems ok, no fever, runny nose, fussiness. His fontanel is good, incisions are good, acts happy and alert, still sleeping through the night. Any advise, suggestions? Prayers please...I hate to worry!
