Our next challenge

15/11/07 I rang the hospital this morning to see how Skyla went through the night. They said that the feeds have been stopped cause she had lots of vomits but this time there was blood in them. Came straight to hospital. Drs think that maybe the NEC is back. (bowel infection) but they cant be sure. Did blood test, they came back ok. She did one poo. No blood in that. Her tummy seems soft and she has no temperature but they arent sure why the blood is there. Her xray showed a pool of something in her abdomen. So at the moment they arent real sure. The plan is to start antibiotics just to be on the safe side and no milk for a few days again, maybe 5 to 7 days. Hope she will be ok. We were so close again to leaving intensive care and then we go back down. Its so hard. The Drs did warn us she would go up and down but its hard coming so far and then this happens. Not sure when ill update next as will be staying at the hospital for the next few days.

Dear Kristy and Joe
Thinking about you all, hope the weekend brings better news and little Skyla settles.
