Fun with charts

We don't talk much (on the blog, at least) about our daily battle with Oliver's reflux. So, how much has Oliver been throwing up lately? We decided to feed our very detailed records into my scientific plotting package and see what came out.

The pictures tell the story... The tiny circles represent small spit-ups, while the largest circles represent more than Oliver's full feed volume coming right back out. (The fine print: Internal reflux and episodes of churning and heaving where nothing comes out are not recorded here. And we've grouped vomit times into five bins: early morning, post-breakfast, post-lunch, after-dinner, and late night.)

The regularity with which Ollie throws up after breakfast is pretty remarkable. Will the December chart tell a different story? Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of Fun With Charts!
