Back in ICU, Her 3rd admission

1/1/08 Skyla had a bad day today. She aspirated into her lungs after she vomited and had trouble breathing. I really thought i was gonna loose her today. It was the scariest day of my life. They started giving her oxygen but she kept dropping her sats. She turned blue and was blotchy all over. They hit the emergency button for a code blue. ICU came in and they managed to stabilize her. There was about 7 people in there working on her. The staff from the ward and ICU were fantastic. Without them my little girl wouldnt be here today. Skyla is now in ICU on CPAP. Luckily she didn't need to go back on the ventilator. They think we will be there for a few days to a week as long as she goes well. She is one tough little girl. They had 3 people holding her down as she was trying to fight everyone off. She is now 11 1/2 weeks and weighs 2.58kg. She is still very small but she is so strong. Must be the maori blood in her i think. Thank god she is a fighter. They have decided to take out her NG feeding tube and put in a NJ which goes further down past her stomach as she has really bad reflux. They will leave her with that for a while so that she will grow better and will probably have another operation to stop her reflux in about 6 to 8 weeks i think. They still have to discuss it but that is pretty much gonna be the plan. At least we will be able to bring her home on the NJ feeding tube. Its a bit daunting but at least we will have our baby girl home with us.
