ICU update

20/1/08 Skyla seems to be getting worse with her reflux episodes. They are happening nearly every couple of hours. Tomorrow we are going to meet with the dr and surgeons about surgery. Im pretty sure she will have surgery this week. She really needs it, she is in so much pain. They will do a LBO first. Thats where they put a camera down in her airways just to make sure it definitely is the reflux and not something more. If it proves that it is reflux, then they will continue on with the operation. They are also going to nick her tongue tie. Hopefully that will help her to suck her bottle easier. Not that she has had the chance to try it yet. Fingers crossed she takes to it well. It will be harder too because she also has a cleft palate. Other than that she is going pretty well. She now weighs in at 3.1kg. She is now 14wks old.
