Day 15

28/12/16 – Day 15

Today is Daddy’s 29th Birthday. Seems the excitement proved too much for Arlo. He had to be intubated this morning.

The ibuprofen has done a bit of a number on Arlo it seems. As well has bleeding from his stomach, it’s also caused a grade 2 Intraventricular hemorrhage or ivh for short which is basically a brain bleed. Added to this the antibiotics he was given for nec have caused his kidneys to stop functioning as they should. His feeds have been stopped angain and he’s been started on dopamine for his kidneys. The ivh is another watch & wait job.
