Bella and I are a little sleepy today, but we spent all night in the ER, so what did we expect? Nothing major, no worries.
The balloon that holds her g-button in place burst and out it popped. We had no spare on hand because that was her spare! That’s the third time it’s popped out in a little over a week.
Since the stoma closes up so quickly, the doc said we needed to get down to the hospital and get a new one placed. So the ambulance was called and we left. My sweet kids see way too many paramedics and EMTs!
They had to stretch out her stoma and then finally were able to re-insert the button –yeah. We had another contrast study done to make sure we were in the right place. I’m glad they do those, but on the other hand, they have to lay her flat to do them. They insert the contrast and she refluxes. She was coughing and choking by the time we got back to the room – and then she vomited. Her fundo is not working. Gotta figure out what to do about that. We are trying to get a wedge or something to put in her bed, so that she’ll always be at the right angle – our blanket creations only work so well.
We are home and Bella was a champ through the whole thing!
