4/7/17 – Day 203
29 weeks old today.
And yet again we’re reminded of how fast things can change…
Arlo’s poorly again. He just suddenly went downhill at about 5pm last night. Heart rate over 200, high temperature and high pitched crying. He’s fighting… something. We don’t know what yet though.
Could be his line, could be his wound, could just be something viral. He’s had the usual septic screen, TPN has been taken down and replaced with clear fluids & he’s started antibiotics.
It’s been a loooong night and but he’s a little bit better today. The surgeons have decided to push feeds up quicker than planned and hopefully he’ll tolerate it and we can forget TPN and get that line out for good. So he’ll be going up 5ml every 3 hours now which should see him reach full feeds by tomorrow at 1pm. Keep your fingers crossed for him please 💛
I think I could probably write another 3 paragraphs of pure self pity today. I’m tired and grumpy and feeling a bit worn out with it all. It won’t change anything though will it I suppose. Just keep swimming 🐟
