Hospital & Home Again
Life is never dull around here! Noah just spent the last four days in hospital AGAIN!! During the night on Saturday, Noah's GJ tube came out. He has gotten very good at pulling at his dressings! When his stoma is leaking so much and all the dressings are wet, it doesn't take much for that tube to come out. Since the radiologist has to put it in and we had no way of feeding Noah, it was off to the ER on Sunday morning. He was admitted right away and an IV started, since he was already starting to get dehydrated. His stoma was also infected and he was spiking fevers, so he was started on IV antibiotics. It took until Tuesday to finally get his GJ tube back in place. He tolerated his feeds overnight, so we were able to switch to oral antibiotics and come home today. Hopefully this tube will last us a bit longer!! I was just so thankful that this didn't happen when we were in Florida that I didn't even mind that much being back in hospital! God was certainly protecting us out there! We are certainly happy to be home today though. I start work tomorrow, so hopefully my first day goes smoothly, as well as Brad's day here at home.
