Skyler's respiratory status just kept getting worse throughout the night and into the morning. It got to the point where I made the doctors come in and do something before they even started their rounds. (I know Im getting kinda pushy around here, but I know what can happen if I dont make things happen) They ended up putting the bi-pap mask back on him to help him breathe. He actually is tolerating it well, other than the fact that he cant eat or drink, because he can actually breathe better now. He even told me he couldnt breathe before they put the mask on him, and you know its bad when a four year old tells you he cant breathe. They know that mostly it is due to being to fluid overloaded and he hasnt been able to pee it off so the fluid went to his lungs, but it also could be due to some kind of infection or he could be bleeding into his lungs. They have done some tests and we will get the results back in the morning. Right now they are giving him diuretics to hopefully get the fluid off of his lungs. If that doesnt work he will be have to be put back on dialysis or intubated. I mean, really? After he has been doing so well? Getting that tube out the first time was a miracle in itself, so Im terrified of them having to put it back in. Hopefully his respiratory issues are just due to fluid and he can pee it out with all these diuretics he is on.
So about the blood in his stool, they just arent sure what it is from. It isnt a bright red color, so they are just going to keep an eye on it. They have done a couple tummy x-rays and the only thing it showed was that his bowels have slowed down and arent working too great, so they stopped his feeds and he is now on TPN which will be his nutrition right now. It's a liquid that looks like Gatorade and it goes into his central line.
