Worried

More bloody diapers.
He had 2 while I was there last night and they did an X-ray and said it looked fine. He's not "acting sick" at all. Everyone seems to agree that he has good color, good tone, his belly is soft, he has good bowel sounds, he's tolerating his feeds, his temperature is good. These are all things they look at and all of them are perfect.

The NP came last night after the X ray and found a small fissure. Okay, maybe that's it.

But when I just called for the morning report, the nurse was concerned. She said she changed his diaper 30 minutes ago and it was pretty bloody. So X-ray was coming agian, and they were doing some bloodwork. The NP was in again and she does see the fissure but doesn't see it actively bleeding.

It's possible that they've over-fortified his milk and it's just tearing his poor insides up. After the tests, they may discuss changing how it's fortified. I'm to check back in about an hour and a half.

I'm trying really hard not to freak out. I'm going to work very shortly. I only have to work a half day, so I can be with him around 2, but I think it's going to be a very, very long few hours. Please pray with me.

What's bigger than a moose?

I was thinking elephants, but whales are definitely bigger.

Praying for you ...

Beavers. Not bigger than a moose, but they eat more.

Even though I am dead against whaling, I was going to suggest whales as well. Robbie is worth it.
Praying very hard that they discover the source of the problem and fix it pronto.
Whale-size hugs to you too Tricia.

I was thinking buffalo (in case we ever need to work our way up to bigger animals), but I think I'm with everyone else. What about a whale with a buffalo on its back? That way we could cover land & sea.

I check on Robbie, you & David every day whether I post a comment or not. Know that I'm thinking of you and praying for you as well. I hope the NP can find the source of the blood and STOP it. Take care of yourself also . . .

Trish, still sending hugs as always. I hope that they have figured everything out by the time you get there after work.

Tessa had bloody diapers, and she was diagnosed with a milk protein allergy. Any chance it's something like that?

Sending you lots of prayers!
