Quick update

Sorry for not updating sooner. Will give more details later. Skyla made it to the ward on 5th March. That night she pulled out her gastrostomy tube in her belly again. So they are now feeding her NJ into her intestines. Her gastrostomy is on free drainage. She has been doing lots of gagging. Lots of desating (lowest 46%sats), lots of temperatures, at least one a day. Next week she will go back to ICU for a day or two as she is going to have a LBO. Thats where they put a camera down to check out her airways. That means another general and back on the ventilator. They are hoping to extubate right after the procedure is done. But like the Drs say, it is Skyla so she may come back vented for a few hours only hopefully. Will try and update again soon.
