Quick Update

Still a lot of unknowns but Karsie is still doing well. She is being treated for a possible infection as some of her lab work is suspicious for that, but they won't be sure until about a day or so when the cultures have been grown.

Dr. Saenz came by and looked at her. He said everything by sight still looks real good. She had an xray done to see more but they couldn't find anything conclusive on that so they sheduled another one tomorrow morning without her dressing on to see if they could see more. She still had a poop today which is still very good news.

The plan is to continue draining her bowel and start her on feeds tomorrow at some time. The feeling from everyone, assuming she doesn't have an obstruction, is that she had a bug (or small infection) and she should be out in a few days. That's our hope too.

Karsie is still acting like Karsie. Mad as heck she is not eating, but still consolable and happy.


  1. Goodness... I was a little behind on reading! I will be praying for Karsie to kick this bug and get back home!

    Hugs - Tiffany

  2. Thanks for the update! Glad to hear that she's doing pretty well and is still acting like herself... we're hoping that it's just a little bug or infection, that is easily treatable, and that she gets to go home ASAP!

    I bet she's missing the ceiling fan...

  3. I am so sorry she had to go back in....yikes!
    But so glad she is holding her own and doing okay and everything seems to be under control.
    I hope and pray she is back at home soon.
    Meanwhile, get some extra SLEEP!
    God has her in his hands, and will be giving her back to you full time very soon.
    Much love, Jen.

  4. Yay for poop! Hope she breaks out again soon.

  5. Praying for a quick recovery so she can once again be home where she belongs!
