That was a disaster.

We are back on Neurontin. My Peanut was up all night screaming for numerous nights. She was crying in pain when we were catheterizing her, and she never does that. She always fights it, but it doesn't normally hurt her. She was so grouchy during the day.
Yesterday I was bolusing her morning baby food in and halfway through she started gagging and retching. Within literally seconds, all the food I had just bolused in her g-tube was thrown up. Explain that to me, when they insist her fundo is intact. (we spit up constantly, the food that was g-tubed in. Obviously refluxing)
So as of last night she is back on Neurontin. She slept all night, and has been her normally cheery self this morning. I am bit disappointed that the wean didn't work, but even more so I am thankful that we have this medication that clearly helps our Princess feel good. :)

I'm sorry she was miserable. I hope you find a comfortable weaning regiment soon.
