We hope everyone had a great New Years........
Caleigh had a good day and the doctors bumped her feeding up to 10 ml an hour at full strength. This morning though she started her usual 'dumping' where her stools are watery and don't have any substance to them. So we didn't change her feeds today and just decided to stay where were at. Caleigh's G-button site looks absolutely horrible. The past 4 day I've been telling every doctor, surgeon and nurse practitioner that came by that it looked infected and that we should do something about it but they just kept saying that we would watch it........don't they know that is what I have been doing and I knew it was getting worse. So today I think it must have looked bad enough for them to do something. She was running a low fever and the area is red, warm and oozy. They started some antibiotics and sent off some blood cultures to see what type of infection it is. With the dumping and infection, Caleigh just doesn't feel very good. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon and things will start clearing up. As far as the feedings go.....I don't know, I guess we will just have to wait and see.
