Good morning everyone and thanks for coming back by to check on sis.
Things are finally looking better for our girl 🙂
She slept like a rock last night. LOL, she even snored and woke me up. Hehehe this girl doesn’t snore, so she had some catching up to do.
Her abdomen xrays looked good. Her cecostomy procedure that we do every other day is doing its job and emptying out her bowels.
Her blood work showed that she’s still iron deficient but she’s at a level that we can just watch for now. She doesn’t need a transfusion, which is wonderful news.
She’s still getting around the clock iv fluids and antibiotics which is bringing back her color and she said she’s feeling better. Her dizziness has gone away and her urine is clearing up 🙂
Doctor said she was dehydrated and that caused alot of her symptoms.
Her stoma is looking less angry too. The redness is gone and the swelling is going down. The plan today is to have ceci try to catherize through it, like she would normally and see if the internal swelling is easing up.
We need to make sure the bleeding has subsided with this treatment too. Normally with infection she’ll have a little bit of bleeding from her stoma but this time around the bleeding has been out of control. With her already being anemic this has been a big concern.
Fingers crossed tightly for our girl that it’ll be better this afternoon. I’m thinking if we get good results with access, I’ll be able to take sis home tomorrow.
I know she’s ready to get back to our boys and back in her own bed. She heals so much quicker when she’s at home like so many of us.
We want to say thank you to you all for the prayers and for keeping ceci and our family in your thoughts.
The past few months have been very exhausting for us all. It’s hard on all of us seeing sis sick for so long and we’ve had so much bad luck going on.
So knowing you all have our backs means so much 💜
I’m going to sign off for now, but I’ll be back soon with another post.
I need to convince our girl to get some food into her system and I promised her I’d run down to the activity room and grab a game for us to play.
Be back soon.
Lots of love and hugs,
Alexis (mom) and Ceci Marie
