Okay so Miss Ava gave me another scare yesterday. Her NG (tube that goes down her nose to her stomach) put out 1,000 ml's of green bile in about 19 hours. Plus she threw up another 200 ml's by her mouth. So I was very concerned as I just didn't know where it is coming from. I called the doctor and he wants to start her on more hydration and another round of Flagyl. (by NG tube)
So the good news is she doesn't act any sicker. She's still dancing and popping about everywhere! Over night she was very nauseous but today she has only thrown up twice this morning. SO the plan is to keep up her hydration with bolus saline through her central line and to start the antibodics. If the output stays high she will have to have surgery in the next few days. I'm hoping we can keep it all under control until she is really ready for surgery in a few weeks.
Nothing like scaring us, the little stinker!
Thanks again for stopping by and please pray that Ava improves.
I put her video on the right side of the screen so if you haven't seen it please take a look as it is her story. The ups and downs of her battle with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
