4.6 kg or 10.1 lbs
Bella is zonked out. I had a really hard time trying to wake her to eat last night. She is sleeping now – which is not normal for her. She is the queen of the micro nap.
Sigh. I should know better than to get excited when a doctor talks about discharge (or surgery or any of our other plans). We have a new attending today who has a new idea of what is wrong with Bella. Sigh. Maybe a few more days.
Today Bella is having another echo done and another x-ray. They will be messing with her formula and placing an NG tube. They are going to lower her methadone again. They are trying. I understand and I appreciate it, but they are also guessing. At least it’s an educated guess.
She woke up at one point today, so I gave her a bath and got her dressed and hoped that would wake her up enough to eat. She took an ounce and a half, not as much as I had hoped.
So for today I am hoping we get some good information from the tests and that we can get some good food into her belly.
Still praying and hoping and being part of your journey! I know about the guessing...it`s so hard. We hope and expect that the doctors know and can help. But those tiny little bodies...they can react so different. Hopefully the results from x-ray and the other tests can show the way.
She looks beautiful!
