The Good: Thankfully his fluctuating fever has slowly gone away. My fear of infection is all but gone. (Knock on wood).
The Bad: He is seriously cranky. Meal time has been the most difficult time with him. I believe his taste is off. It seems he cannot taste the things he loved to eat prior his most recent surgery. Now his desired food menu includes ice cream, frozen blueberries, and popsicles. (Who wouldn’t want that?) With all the cold foods you think he would be teething?
The Ugly: The most recent examples. He cried all through breakfast (it is his third day in a row) and chucked his bowl of mixed berry (frozen berries from Costco) oatmeal across the floor. Ugh, lovely! He normally loves oatmeal.
Later tonight he cried all through dinner and proceeded to hang on the freezer door in protest of grilled chicken, corn on the cob and rice. He even was signing and saying "eat ice cream". Impressive, huh? I was so after an hour I chalked it up to post-surgery recovery and let him eat ice cream topped with blueberries.
Alexander where are you? I am hoping you’re back to normal really soon.
