On Tuesday I called the GI Clinic nurse to have her fax in a prescription for more Elecare. After trying to convince me to do it, she finally agreed to take care of it and asked if I needed any flavor packets. Seriously, there are flavor packets? I’m currently using strawberry syrup so of course I’d like some flavor packets.
The stipulation she gave was that we could start replacing formula if Averi was taking 300 calories orally a day. I decided to add it up and she’s averaging 320 a day. I called back today to let the nurse know and she changed her tune again. She informed me that we should not do any substituting until after doing a weight check in 2 weeks. Then she flat out told me that all they care about is weight gain. Do I even have to tell you that I didn’t listen to a single word she said?
Note to self: keep your big mouth shut!
