Well last night was rough...(understatement). She scream-cried between 11 p.m. and 5:45 a.m. that she wanted to nurse, but they wouldn't let her. They wanted to give her tummy a break from putting anything in there because she's just vomiting it right back up. She wanted to nurse so badly - she did not sleep last night, and I haven't closed my eyes yet at this point.
They finally told me I could nurse her around 6 a.m. this morning and she's already thrown it up... so unfortunately even though she went all night without vomiting we are back to that. Definite blood in vomit now which has been absolutely terrifying and heart wrenching. They believe the lining of her stomach is slightly torn. As a mom, seeing dark brown vomit ooze from your child's mouth is one of the most disturbing things of life.
At around 10am this morning, the G.I doc and a team of doctors here at Randall Children's hospital examined her again and now the plan of action (which is already in action) is as follows:
We have gotten a urine sample via catheter. Waiting on results. Ouch. She is such a trooper and tearfully but sweetly said, "Thank you," to the nurses who helped insert it and told her she did a great job. 😪💔👼 Next we got a tube put in through nose to tummy (not sure of the technical term) in order to get dye pushed through her Upper G.I. tract. The pediatric radiologist happened to be here today (PRAISE GOD) so he has inserted dye, and has been watching the dye via x-ray as it travels down into her bowels. This process is taking a 2 full hours...and now I know there was a bigger reason God didn't allow Jazzy to sleep last night. She is so tired, she is not putting up a fight, and we are getting her on and off the table for X-ray every 15 minutes without her panicking like she normally would.🙏❤🙏 If everything looks good, but we still have continued vomiting and no signs of progress, an ultrasound will be our next step. After that, Endoscopy.
I will keep updating as I know more and get results. Thank you, Friends and Family for praying for and thinking of my sweet, strong baby girl, me, Darius, Dave, and my Mom and family.
