Hangin tough

We are on the floor. No more fevers. They've started feeds, very slow. 10 mls and hour and their staying there through the night. His stomach is distended so they don't want to rock the boat.
He hasn't done well pain wise this time. They've had a hard time controlling the pain, and when he is awake he is extremely agitated. When he gets mad he drops his sats and turns blue as blue. He is on 1 liter of oxygen, so not too bad. Carter had his last baseball game tonight so Jax hospital "babysitter" came up to sit with him so I could go.



Don't know what the plan is. Just increase feeds. They've flushed the cecostomy, but nothing has come out below yet. His bowels are still in shock from the surgery and not moving too well, so I'm trying not to freak out that its not working. Give it some time. We have a good attending. One that knows Jax well, and has also seen first hand how naughty he can be so she is not taking any chances. It makes life so much easier when you have a good doctor that you don't have to argue with.

I better get my but in bed, I know we won't likely be getting much sleep around here.

they have also told me that the narcotics slow down the gut - so that might be slowing things down a little - I am so hoping that things go well and this is an uneventful stay - just heal and go home

Two nights ago as I was lying in bed saying my prayers, I think I dozed off before I finished and couldn't remember if I go to Jax (I know you shouldn't do it while lying in bed). So last night, I made sure that Jax was the FIRST person I prayed for because I felt so guilty about maybe missing him the night before. I just want his pain to go away and for him to be BETTER so you all can enjoy your summer.

Sweet little guy...praying he gets to where he needs to be so you can take him home. How long do you think you'll be there, any plan? I am tryin to plan out when we can drive down. I do have all the kiddos though! Much love to you and Jax!

Hang in there Lacey, Jax is gonna come around!

Mama Mason-Mann said...

AS always we're thinking of you and Jax!!! Hugs from CT!

Stephanie said...

I'm glad you got to go to the game, and don't freak out too much. The after effects of the anesthesia and the pain meds can plug up a healthy set of intestines so it's just gonna take some time and patience. Take a deep breath Mama and try to get some rest. You've earned it.

Kim said...

What a tough cookie! Continued prayers. Glad you got a chance to get away for a bit. Mommies need a break once in awhile.
