BR: Thoughts and Prayers Please (Updated)

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.  

Re: BR: Thoughts and Prayers Please (Updated)

  • Lots of T&P's for you all! Please get some rest and keep us updated.
  • Lots of T&P's for all of you! I hope the doctors get things figured out soon.

  • Oh no!  I hope they get everything figured out and you get to take Bumblebee home again soon!  T&P coming your way!

    I can't imagine how tough it must have been for you and your DH to leave him at the hospital tonight, but hopefully you are able to get some good rest tonight.

  • Lots of thoughts and prayers, Heather.  Bumblebee is in amazing hands at the NICU.  Shady Grove?  If so, definitely wonderful hands.  Liam was in the NICU there for 5 days, and they were amazing, so wonderful with the babies and the parents.

    If you need anything, please let me know! I am not far away.  Hugs to you and Greg!

  • Sending them your way!!  Get well Bumblebee--get some rest mommy!

  • Thank you all. 

    Terri, he is at Holy Cross.  It is much closer to where we live than Shady Grove and our Ped has privledges at both, so he wanted us to be closer to home. And thank you for the offer.  We have been offered/brought enough food to last a month!

    He is doing much better.  He is sleeping constantly, but they said that is because he is being feed through IV and has no hunger cues.  There are still no indications of infection from the tests they've done.  They are doing another abdominal scan tomorrow, this time with contrast.  The Dr seems to think it is one of 2 things, either a blockage (which should flush when they give the barium enima for the scan) or the opening is simply too narrow.  If it is the second, they said it is fixable, but didn't give us any further detail.  They did have to put a tube down into his stomache for a little bit today to get out gas that was building up.  However, they have removed it and he is farting like a champ!  He is still having trouble maintaining his temperature if they take him off the warmer for us to hold. But I am freezing in there, so I think its because he is naked in a cold room.

    I will keep you updated when we know more.

     

  • Lots of T&P's headed your way!
  • Lots of prayers for little Bumblebee and your family!! Hopefully they can figure it out and fix it soon!!

    Well, I am glad that you are close to home.  Hopefully, the tests tomorrow show whats going on, and they can get Bumblebee all fixed up and he can go home.  Keep us updated, and the offer stands that if you need anything at all, I am here:)

  • I sure hope that they can figure out what is going on with Baby Bumblebee soon. T&Ps are with the 3 of you!
