We have been busy this week with a very sick baby, who finally landed back in the ER again this morning:
We have had some weak heart beats and sick lungs and too fast heart beats.
Her heart has been working too hard again to help her breathe, and she is just worn out even when taking it easy.
She also hasn’t had any food intake for three days, except what we put in the ng tube. That means IV fluids, which she was not thrilled about, as well as some medicine while she was plugged in anyway.
She also got chest X-rays that found pneumonia and a collapsing lung.
She also tested positive for three viruses, one of which they think she maybe had last month and it is just still showing up. She is just one sick little girl.
She just catches everything. Little sicknesses are big for her. But she is trying and we so appreciate so many prayers.
The good news is that the ng tube saved her, in that she weighed in today at 19 pounds! That’s great for her, and the first time she didn’t lose weight when she was sick. So while she isn’t a chunky monkey yet, she at least held her own for the first time. That counts!
The viruses should run their course in a week, which in Kyrie time may be two or three weeks.
Many thanks for your prayers!
