2:30 pm Update

My poor girl has had such a hard time these past few hours. Aside from the obvious discomfort we have not been able to give her any thing to eat or drink for two reasons. First, she has been so hysterical the whole time that she won't quit moving long enough. Second, because she is laying flat both the nurses and I are extremely concerned that she will choke or aspirate whatever we give her. But aside from those things the worse part was that because she is so upset she made herself throw up. Normally this would not be that big of a deal but since she was laying flat it went up her nose and down the top and back of her head right onto her pin sites. This is NOT GOOD. The pins sites have a high risk of infection to begin with which can lead to meningitis. So, having throw up in them is the last thing we need. We are still in the process of trying to figure out how we are going to feed her but it looks like a feeding tube is the most likely choice. The next visiting hours from 4-6. I will updated again shortly after that.

  1. Poor thing!! I know that is complete torture for her. I hope that she calms down soon and can get some food in her. Hang in there, mom! Praying for you both!! Daphne
