Annabelle is 2 weeks old today (or will be at about 11:17 this evening!)
She had a good day today... still trying to get her sedation just right so she doesn't get so agitated, but I'd be agitated if I had 4 tubes sticking out of me, a tube in my mouth, a tube in my nose, and who knows how many IV's! (Okay, so there are 2 that I can think of...)
They also restarted her feeding tube today (they had to turn it off yesterday for chest closure.) PLEASE be praying about this though, as Scott and I got back from dinner tonight and the nurse told us that Annabelle had blood in her stool, which could be a sign that she's not tolerating feeding. They are going to do a stomach Xray to see what is going on, and have now turned it back off. :-(
Personally... I think the poor baby hasn't eat in 2 weeks so OF COURSE her stomach has to adjust ... evidently though, they don't like this. Probably has something to do with her still being on blood thinner as well. But anyway, feeding is hugely important, so please be praying that she tolerates it and that they can restart the feeding tube!!
Below are her 2 week birthday pictures:-) She was opening her little peepers good for Mommy at about 2:30 this morning!! Then she got mad so they gave her some more of the good stuff... :-)
