*Part 2* Well they had trouble getting the blood draw back and my poor baby’s heart rate shot up to 215 and his tongue started to turn blue. They finally gave him a little break, only for them to come back in 5 minutes later to try to squeeze the blood out again.
So this time his N-SamSam(his nurse) held him while they did it and mommy looked into his eyes, while patting his head trying to keep him distracted. It was all very stressful on all of us. Finally they got enough blood for the labs and no sooner then they gave him back his arm did he fall right asleep! So mommy took him and held on to him while Sam Sam got him a cold bottle to cool him down.
We are now waiting to hear what’s going on and will most likely be here for a few days. *Since I initially wrote this at 3pm they have come in to redo his EKG, because they were worried about the abnormalities or long QTs. They redid it and it came out with the same abnormalities again. They also redid his labs, because they thought his white blood cell count was extremely low. So we are waiting to get the 2nd test results back from the lab and to also have Cards come see us and review the EKGs as well.
Jeffrey had to take SamSam home and also get to work, so I am trying to keep Rycker occupied while also writing and posting this update.
If you all can please say a prayer for our Rycker Roo and specifically pray for his heart rhythm to return to normal and that there isn’t anything underlying that is going on causing this. Also please share this with your prayer warriors!
Again I am so sorry for not giving you guys your daily or even weekly dose of Rycker smiles!
I will try to get more updates posted this weekend and in the weeks to come! As we have had a lot of major milestones and happenings in these past few weeks to share with all of you!
We are home now after bring monitored overnight. Will post an update as soon as we get settled!
