An ok day

Jax had a little better day today. Didn't wake up screaming last night. I had to make a few trips for beeping monitors, but thats nothing new. He still needed pain meds pretty regularly today. I had to change his dressing twice. Tonight when I changed it you can clearly see were the skin is breaking down around the hole. Also, half of its covered by a dressing I can't remove. I hate to see the breakdown under there, he's going to get an infection just from that. We are going back to the ped tomorrow and the surgeon on Thursday. He may take the whole dressing off, heck, he may even say to just go ahead and put the button in. Hopefully that will help. If the button is going to leak like this I don't want it. Its not like a leaky g-tube, this is stool that leaks out. (Sorry for the grossness. Don't look at this next pic if your grossed out.)


Tonight Lily and her mom brought us dinner. She was very nervous at first around all of Jax tubes. She didn't want to get to close. But after a few minutes she warmed right up. She even posed for a couple of pics for me. She insisted on taking a pic of us. Sorry Lily, I'm not posting it, I look way to fat.

Thank's so much for dinner, its a huge burden off me right now. (Maybe now I can clean my house a little)

I am glad to hear today was a tad better. Poor Jaxson's 'hole'. That looks like it hurts! Poor baby! Praying things get better for you soon!

Lily said...

Holding Jaxson was the best. I could hold him for hours. Thank you for letting us barge in today. Lily told her dad all about it, no mention of how nervous she was at first ;-)

Poor little man!!! I'm sure that breakdown would be painful, like a bad diaper rash! I hope that they have a good plan for fixing that soon!

I'm glad to hear that he had a better day and night! I'll be praying for an even better one for you guys today!

LOVE, HUGS and PRAYERS!!!

Lacey, you are definitely in my thoughts and prayers. You are an inspiration to me because you continue to roll with the punches no matter what comes your way. I am glad to hear that Jax is feeling a little better and I pray that you don't get any more bad news when you go to the pediatrician. Hugs!

Cute pictures of Lily and Jaxson. I am so glad today was a little better day. His hole looks really sore - hopefully they can fix it before it gets really bad. Good luck at the pediatrician today!!

Michelle said...

So glad he slept better! Hopefully it's better days ahead. Although that site looks horrible, it looks like it hurts! Glad dinner came again too! Please keep me posted (email) on your needs and I will make sure I do whatever I can to help! :)

At least he isn't screaming 24/7!

I am so jealous that Lily's mom got to come by and hold Jax!!! I'm glad they came and y'all had dinner

Lacey, I am sorry that you are feeling so overwhelmed right now. It would have been nice for them to tell you that the hole could leak so you could have been prepared. It seems like such an infection risk to have stool on broken skin.

Poor poppet. I pray that he is in less pain soon!

My name is Sarah said...

Hey Jaxson, How cool that you got to meet Lily. You are looking better to today little man. I keep hugging my bear and saying prayers for you.
