Hello ladies, its been hectic, and I was planning on posting tonight with a birth story and to thank you for all your kind wishes. ***Please nothing on FB about this***
However, I am instead going to be asking for some thoughts and prayers for Bumblebee, myself, and DH. Bumblebee is currently in the NICU, after being taken to the ER this afternoon. After he stopped passing meconium, he started passing bloody stools. By this afternoon, there wasn't even any stool, just bloody mucus. (Sorry for the TMI) When we go to the ER his temperature was low (around 95) and he passed more blood.
Once up in the NICU, they did a ton of blood work, including an arterial draw, a abdominal x-ray (which showed no blockage), and a spinal tap. So far everything from the spinal has come back negative, but they are still waiting on the bacterial cultures. He is currently on bowel rest (no feeding, all nutrition is via IV). As of when we left tonight, he was doing much better. His temperature was normal, his color was improved, he was becoming more alert again.
DH and I are under orders from the NICU staff to get sleep and come back rested. I will update when we have information.
Thank you again for your thoughts and prayer.
