One guess where we are
Wednesday morning after a time of terrible constipation and a 105 degree fever I brought Livi to the ER. Her white cell count was seriously up, so they figured it was a UTI with constipation which happens pretty regularly, I guess. After A LOT of miralax she seemed to feel a lot better and the doctors, now knowing her well, figured they'd keep her a few days to keep an eye on her. So, yesterday morning I got to the hospital and she is still on oxygen from the night before. They did a chest x-ray and she has a little "schmutz" on her left lower lobe of her lung. Might not turn out to be too much since she's just on a bit of oxygen. This morning while I was holding her she had this really deep wet cough. *sigh* Olivia. Its my daughter, so nobody much knows how any of this will play out, so we're just waiting and watching. Livi seems to be feeling pretty good...sleeping a bit more than usual, but sitting up with Brian and I and reading books and watching movies a few hours a day.
Also yesterday morning Brian and I went to the perinatologist again. The baby is growing great except for her belly.? I know, right? Why the belly? The Dr. said not the worry about it (yea right) but her weight is right on track so far so we have a lot to be grateful for. We go back in 2 weeks for them to check her again. Maybe I just have skinny babies. Lord knows Olivia plumped up just fine. Anyone remember her tire arms? I do.
