Oh pooo poooooo!

Last night was one of the worst nights I've ever had with Rowan. She had been trying to poop all afternoon with no luck. She gets bound up often. I think its because she eats a lot of dairy and on top of that, she goes through streaks where she doesn't really drink enough. I don't know if she just feels to busy to stop and drink or what.. but she'll go a few days drinking very little fluids.

Anyhow, we put her down to bed at 6:30 and she woke up at 9 screaming in pain. I had to take her downstairs and hold her on the couch so she could sleep sitting up. I tried many time to put her back in her bed only to have he come back into my room a few minutes later crying and trying to push out her poo poo.

After hours of this, Barney finally got dressed and headed over to the 24 hour Walgreens at 2 am to buy a toddler enema. Let me tell you! That thing did the trick. Not even a minute after giving it to her, she "moved" her weight in poop! Even her stomach looked smaller... After we got her diaper changed she completed collapsed and slept very deeply until 7 am... when I groggily got up and went to work on 4 hours of sleep.
Barney stayed home with her. She was exhausted as was he... and since he works with electricity all day its not really safe for him to work when he's that tired.

She pooped another 3 times during the day, so apparently whatever was stuck in there has worked its way out. But man.... what a night! blah!
