Jake's First ER Visit

Jake went to the ER for the first time. He had the tiniest bit of rice cereal and two hours later he went limp, then projectile vomited several times, then couldn't stop gagging and dry heaving and eventually threw up a little blood. Yikes. The poor boy's stomach cant get a break. Thank the heavens that my mom was here. She was such a huge support. We packed up and went to the ER after talking with the on-call doctor at the pediatrician's office. We were there till 2 am, and after Jake emptied out pretty much everything and more., They think it was an allergic reaction to rice cereal. The only way we can know for sure is if we try it again. Great.


  1. aww..poor Jakie poo. hope the lil guy feels better soon.

  2. Poor Jake-babies just shouldn't have to go to the ER. But Eliot made his debut there too. Maybe he should just stick to strawberries.

  3. I hate the ER! I hope he's doing better... and I would wait a LONG time before giving him rice again. Eric threw gagged (worst reaction to food, thankfully) when eating avocado and he still doesn't eat it, even though we've tried since.
