Two weeks have gone by, I wish I could say they've flown by......but they haven't. It's seems like an eternity. SO much has happened to Davy girl in 14 days.
These little arms are filled with holes from the many IV's they've put in. She also wasn't getting the hang of eating so she needed a G tube put in so she could get some food.
These little feet get blood drawn from them constantly.
She had to be in an Isolette for 5 days under 2 sets of lights and a Billi blanket. The worse part of this was I couldn't hold her. Those days seemed longer. To top things off she had a diaper rash and an eye infection.
In a 6 day span she literally grew a tooth(overnight) and we watched it decay into a brown blob and then get it pulled.
Since the IV's weren't lasting, she got a central line. They shaved the sides of her head only to not be able to put it in her head. So they put it through her belly button. Which made it very difficult to hold her with. She's had 3 heart echoes, which showed 2 minor defects, PDA and VSD. These are being controlled with meds, with a possibility of surgery for the PDA.Then she was having trouble breathing, so she needs to be on oxygen from time to time. From this we found out she had an infection, so 7 days of antibiotics. She also started throwing up everything in her little belly, which started to include bile. So no more G tube, no more milk. Just IV fluids and a larger tube put down her throat to suck out the bile.
Then the central line needed to be replaced back to her head, which is better then the belly button. All leading up to her surgery for a Mal rotation of her intestines. This will happen on Friday. She has gone threw more in 14 days(medically) then I have in 34 years.
Through all these things, I have felt calm and know that she is being blessed. Life could be worse, much worse.
