Stumbling along!

Jaxson is sick!
Not quite sure what it is.
The last few days I noticed he wasn't tolerating his feeds as well, and has been kind of cranky. Yesterday after his 1:00 feed, he was super cranky, so I vented his belly. I pulled out 70 cc's of formula! That was a half hour after his hour long feed stopped! I talked to my ped and she thought maybe he was backed up a little. As you may remember, Jax bowels don't work at all. I give him a liquid suppository every night to make him go. She said we may not have been getting it all out. So its slowly backed up. So last night we did two. Didn't get much the second time, but I didn't really think that was the problem. I also told her I'm noticing a little more edema on him. You know how he likes to sleep on his face! Well when he wakes up from naps his eye that was down is full of fluid, like it all drained to that side he was laying on. She ordered some labs for today.
I went out with some dance friends to dinner last night, and had a fantastic time!! We always have so much fun together! But when I got home and went to put Jax to bed, he was cranky again. I took his temp and found a low grade fever of 100.8. His sats were lower, I had to turn his oxygen up last night from 2 to 4 liters. I'm not sure if this is a respiratory thing that's just starting different than normal, or if its something else all together. But I'm calling my ped today before we go in to tell her these new developments. I'm sure there are a few more tests she's going to want to add!
Prayers would be appreciated!

I usually know that Gavin is about to get sick when he starts getting fussy and gagging and spitting up more. I'm not sure why this is though!

Get better Jax! You and your Momma have lots of planning to do this month! Love and Hugs little buddy!
