Bouncing Back

Thankfully Nora is recovering very well from her weekend tummy episode. She’s back to eating her formula after a 12 hour break with Pedialyte only, her poopies have slowed down and have more consistency than they have in the past couple of weeks. We already got the results of this mornings blood draw and were very happy to see that her electrolytes are in balance after having so much diarrhea and vomiting. We were also very encouraged with her weight this morning. Nora’s nurse Virginia was very pleased to see how good she looked this morning after hearing how sick she was over the weekend. We’re going to go another day of just giving her Elecare and will reintroduce solids on Wednesday as long as she continues to do well. Her follow up appointment with Shands Peds GI has been moved up to next week to address the weight she’s lost since going off TPN. Now that her system seems to be getting back on track hopefully she’ll gain back some of  the weight she lost and more some.

    I would say that it sounds like just a stomach bug, but i suppose there’s no such thing as “just” a stomach anything with SBS. glad to hear she’s feeling better. keeping her in my prayers anyway.
