- May 28, 2009Hi Lori,
I'm glad to hear Emily is walking better. Throwing up clear greenish
liquid could be bile, stomach acid or could be a bacterial infection if it's
Yes, it could be the new food, what was the food?
Usual dose of Pepcid AC is 1/8 - 1/4 of a 10mg tablet every other day to
IV fluids needs to be okayed by the cardio for Emily's particular
heart condition and then given on a very slow drip if the cardio says she
can have them and then given a specified amount.
Slippery elm bark, start at 1/8 teaspoon for the powder. If you are using a
capsule tap out about a quarter of it. Keep separated from meds 3 hours.
Is she is not eating you will have to start assist feeding.
Hope others who know more write..
