Peyton had a very quiet day. He literally slept the ENTIRE day. Maybe because he was up the entire night throwing up. Yes, the entire night, not one feeding stayed down. They switched it to a very slow continuous feed today and also started him on another anti-nausea medication (so now he is on two) to help keep his feeds down. Unfortunately, this makes him very tired. He woke up for the first time about 15 minutes ago and is watching Wreck It Ralph and talking to me. Still no pain, they haven’t taken the epidural out yet. His seizures are under control because of this so we are happy for that. The unrealistic dream that we get to go home on Friday was shattered this afternoon. The doctor said he needs to start keeping feeds down, we need to think about taking the epidural out maybe tomorrow, and see how seizures are with oral pain control. He said best case scenerio would be the weekend, realistically probably Monday. 🙁 Peyton is so fragile. There are so many other things we have to take into consideration, they don’t want to rush him home to have him readmitted because he was not ready. So, here we sit. He’s coughing more which is a great thing, his lungs are working and moving air through them again. He spiked a slight fever again last night, but it didn’t get high enough that the doctors wanted to remove the epidural and it hasn’t been back since-thank goodness! His swelling is still pretty significant, we are packing him in ice packs. He swollen everywhere! Poor thing! They said the third day is always the worst and they aren’t kidding!! My scrawny, bony baby looks like a stuffed turkey. We had a visitor today, Our friend Kathy came up for kisses, hugs, and brought a spider man blanket to snuggle up to, magazines for mommy to read, and snacks. She also took me to the cafeteria for lunch and gave me a ride to the Ronald McDonald House so I could shower and change clothes because BRRR! Its cold out there! I was very suprised and happy to see her being I’m up here by myself today. Daddy is returning tomorrow to stay up here with me. Not a fun way to spend your 35th birthday,- guess we will have to celebrate when we are all under one roof so if you see Brian, wish him a happy birthday!
Thanks everyone for your continued love, support, prayers, and well wishes. To our family, thanks for being there and taking care of our girls and our home while we are here. Our friend, Guenna for taking care of Ally after school while we are away-I don’t know what we would do if we couldn’t lean on you! and My besties that have been texting me to make sure I still have my sanity, checking on Buck and putting a smile on my face when I need it most! You are ALL appreciated more than you know! Keep our Buck in your prayers! They work! I will post again tomorrow! God Bless!
A night of vomiting….
To Peyton’s friends in 1P: To answer the question-YES! You WILL get to sign his spider man cast! I promise!
Pretty swollen, but happy tonight!
