Quoting Cassandraz:“ shes doing alot better,shes more alert and she wakes up when i come and see her.They have her on 4 different ... [snip!] ... still not bottlefeeding her yet shes fed through an iv but her stomach is still empty I cant wait to bring her back home.”
It's really rough seeing your child like that. I know how you feel, Momma. I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. Is this your first baby? [sorry I didn't look at your profile.]
My daughter was intabated for 24 hours and then she was taken off of it. They let me feed her day 5 of her stay. I was BF'ing and supplementing with the bottle also.
My daughter had so many anitbotics I can't even remember how many to be honest. She had some powerful ones too that gave her a horrible diaper rash. She had 2 blood transfusions of platelettes because she was losing those somewhere... she was in bad shape for awhile. It was touch and go if she was going to make it.
*Sigh* Rough rough time. I will pray for you and your little girl.
Did you ask when she will be fed from a bottle or breast? I'm not sure if you were breastfeeding or not. Or when she will be able to come home since the infection seems to be going down?
