Today was better.
Jonah only had one big throw up this afternoon, but I'm pretty sure it was my fault. I was giving him yogurt, 1/4 of a banana, and two ounces of formula. It was very liquidy, and I think I might have pushed it too fast. And he may or may not be able to tolerate bananas. That's yet to be determined. I know he can't handle banana pudding, but I thought it was the sweet flavor. Maybe not. So it was either the bananas, the formula, how liquidy it was and/or me pushing it too fast. It was a fluke. I'm sure it was a fluke. It had to be a fluke, right?
I ordered my Vitamix 5200 today. I have read The Simmons Family Blog, and she highly recommends this blender. It will pretty much blend anything to liquid. Right now I can do veggies and fruits that aren't seedy in my Magic Bullet, but I have to use baby food meats. I can't do rice because it's too thick and pasty. And I haven't tried beans, but I think I would have a similar problem with those. The Vitamix can do rice, beans, meats, and grains to liquid. AND I could just blend up whatever we're eating - casseroles, lasagna, steak - whatever, and give it to Jonah. I'm excited. It's expensive, but there's a medical discount of 25%, and I ordered a reconditioned one instead of a new one. It also comes with a seven year warranty. I'm committed to trying this for Jonah, and I just don't feel like I can give him the protein and grains he needs without a better blender. And I definitely can't risk having chunks and clogging his tube. So the Vitamix it is! I'm pumped.
Life's an adventure, I guess. It seems like we're always trying to figure something out.
Thanks for all the continued prayers and support. You've got to be exhausted.
And is it just me or is this episode of Glee even more weird than usual? That Lady Gaga is a strange bird.
