Sarah, you can provide Eli with pain relief by dosing him with aspirin at a dose of 10 mg/lb with food and repeated in 12 hour intervals or acetaminophen dosed at 7 mg thrice daily. You must avoid the toxic ibuprofen and naproxen. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Hi Sarah,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Eli. How is everything going?
