Here are some pictures from this hospital stay:
One of the few times she's been awake...for just a couple seconds. NG tube inserted to deflate the gas in her bowels.
Not feeling well at all. But resting.
First night. Not feeling well.
Waiting to wake up.

Things have not been going well for our little bug. Last night, she spent most of the night retching, so much so that she had a few bloody retches (obviously this was a freaky thing, but the doctor said that it was from the intubation tube irritating her esophagus, and it was later confirmed as it went away). On top of that, her bowels became distended again, causing the doctors to suggest giving her an NG tube to suck away the gases from her bowels. Therefore, we are stuck in the hospital until things settle down. Then, she needs to eat and drink, which she doesn't want to do because she's gagging, which is caused by the gases. So, hopefully, things will start improving afterwards. But a 4-year-old with a new NG...sigh.
