No big changes. For the most part, it was a VERY good day!
Praying she sleeps better tonight though. She tossed and turned most of the night last night, and was cranky on and off today, so Mommy got very, very little sleep. She feels SO much better when she gets a good night sleep! (and so does Mommy!)
They had changed her formula while we were in the hospital to help with her “bloody” stool, but I think it has had a not-very-swell effect. She’s pooping up a STORM… and it is pretty much liquid. Even though I coat her poor baby bottom (sorry for the TMI today) with diaper rash stuff… it is pretty much raw. I know it must hurt… which is probably part of her crankiness!
I made a Mommy decision to change her back to her other formula, as I wasn’t fully convinced it was the formula causing her issue in the first place. Will talk with the doctor on Thursday about it at our next clinic visit.
Did get a call from them today to confirm that all her labs yesterday were great or improving! YEAH!!!! Her BNP that had gotten up to >4000 (should be like less than 100) that showed severe heart-failure is now below 1000! It is always elevated after heart surgery, so we are very excited that it has come down that low!
Some other important numbers are trending lower too, which again shows that she is going the right direction. YEAH!
My Lacy had to go to the doctor today in NC. She has a “throat infection” although it isn’t strep… but they still put her on antibiotics. Poor baby was having horrible headaches and had ran a fever for quite a while. It hurts my Mommy heart not to be there with her to take care of her, but at the same time, I know it would have been SO hard to have her here too, as we have to be super careful with Annabelle and germs. Please pray that the antibiotics help, and that she gets feeling better SOON, and that none of the other girls or my inlaws get sick!
Another note (and main reason I am blogging tonight….) Please keep Anna Reese in your prayers tomorrow! This is Annabelle’s heart-friend at Vanderbilt… she is having a heart cath tomorrow due to the issues she has been having. PLEASE pray that this fixes her issues and gives her better blood flow so she can breathe well!!! She really needs STRONG lungs too so she can come down off her oxygen and be more stable at home.
THANK YOU all for your prayers!!!! You are AMAZING!!!
