NICU Stay Extended
We were about a day away from bringing Karsie home when we got a call from one of her nurse practitioners saying that they were pulling up brown residuals from her stomach. We're not sure what this means and what the residuals are, but they stopped the feeding. We're not sure if they have a plan, but we will have to go through the introducing food to Karsie all over again once they figure out what's going on. We of course understand the need to stop feeding, but we were so close to having her back and, to be honest, this is really starting to wear on us. We are going to wait for our surgeon who may or may not be in today to talk to us about the plan, but for now we just have to be patient which is not something we are good at in such an uncomfortable environment. We should know more later on today.
