Afternoon Update (10-29)

No one seems to terribly concerned with the brown residual but it did keep Karsie from coming home tomorrow. They started her back up on pedialyte and we will start this process all over. It was good that they stopped it, but the surgeon said that she needs to keep her bowel functioning. Unless she throws up more than her normal she will come home when they get her to full feeds, which at this point looks like Sunday or Monday. The brown residual was probably dried blood which may have come from putting in her ng tube that night or from something else, but she continues to poop which means things are going through. I guess we just wait and see...

  1. I am glad the brown residual has gone....and she is getting something in her tummy.
    Still, you must be beside yourselves.
    He is beside you too.
    Hang in there....

    And you might possibly invest in a punching bag so you can beat something up now & then?

    Anyway, here's to the return of eating, pooping & growing.
    Love Jen.
