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.


  1. So sorry to hear this. Praying that she starts feeling better soon!

  2. dang it. well let us know what we can do for you.
    and your babers in your belly will be fine. sometimes those tests worry us more...
