Basically the title- true story. (the stench of the medicine not the death o.o)
My baby brother has to have this vitamin medicine which literally all the vitamins in the world (exaggerating) in it. This is because of his diet being really restrictive. The dietician prescribed this and told us to feed him to medicine for as long as we can. So, being the loving and responsible family that we are, we do what we’re told. I remember opening the bottle, and the stench (smell) of it hit me. It was just naasttyyyy.
Whilst I was helping my mum to prepare, I was thinking ‘how on earth is he supposed to get this down?’. My fears came true when he refused to have it- I don’t blame him, just looking at it made me gag. And its really frustrating when we went back to dietician and she doesn’t seem to understand that it is I M P O S S I B L E for him to have medicine that smells like crap. He’s not going to have it. Even if you try and force it down. He usually has his medicines- he knows he has to take them. However with this one, it just smells really bad and he’s not budging.
So we’re in a bit of a smidge. The dietician said that we should feed him it and then quickly give water but IT WONT WORK. I don’t know what makes it smell so bad. I’d say the name but if you have a memory like mine, its pretty useless.
I held the bottle out for my mum, and I just sniffed my hand and the stench… *dies*
So my brother was having one of those days where he’ll refuse to eat his tea. He had just come back from the dietician and she said that he’s improved which is always great to hear! 🙂 But oh no, coinkidinkily (pardon my use of random words that aren’t from the english dictionary) he came back refusing to eat. My brother has this thing where he’ll eat but only if the channel is switched to 998 which for those who have Sky and live in the UK know that its one of the channels where Sky go on about their awesome whatsits. But yeah- that channel was on so he was refusing to eat. So mum got out his storio (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_kUSTO85AS-c/TLrFTtvwfOI/AAAAAAAAB9Q/O-1cJJ1b-yM/s1600/storio.jpg) which he absolutely loves but he still refused to eat. In the end though, he had weetabix. I don’t know why he does that and I don’t think we’ll know anytime soon. I wish we did.
So he’s currently on his Storio, playing away but oh wait- the batterys dead and now he’s crying. He does this really cute thing where he’ll try and turn it on (despite the battery being dead but he doesnt really know this or maybe he does o.o) and if its not working, he’ll grab the finger of myself or anyone in the family and he’ll indicate that he wants them to turn it on. Its really cute c: Though it gets a bit much when he starts crying again and you have run round the house, trying to search for more batteries and when you do find them, it can be a bit difficult taking the toy off of him o.o
Oh so I have a question in my head. The dietician said that its not good that he drink from those plastic cups with the straw thing (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41WcAxeeWfL._SL500_AA300_.jpg) because it’ll change the shape of his jaw or cheeks o.. o But isn’t that the same as drinking from the straw? It makes no sense o.o
Just remembered. We have this mat with numbers on and in the morning, I held my brothers hand and we went from one number to another and then I said its his turn. Not sure whether he understood that it was his turn but anyway, he managed to say ‘One’ C: like not with confidence I guess but more of a whisper? And he tries to say ‘Two’ he’ll say ‘T’, just the T but its massive improvement! I guess with lots of repetition, it does pay off. I mean if you keep saying it and show them the numbers- they’ll put two and two together (see what I did there? Pun wasn’t intended ^___^)
Still googling on the flapping thing. So far I’ve read that its their way of expressing themselves? o.o *googles some more*
