Sam has it. We’re beyond lucky he had the replogal in because it allowed us to see something was wrong almost immediately.
The pediatric surgeons and GI doctors have all been briefed with the latest. Again, we’re lucky. It’s not a surgical issue yet, hopefully never will be.
He’s on his 4th platelet transfusion; his body can’t keep up while he’s fighting this. They’re most likely putting in another PICC line to get him the fluids and medications he needs.
We’re thankful right now, but we’re constantly reminded about how life threatening NEC is and can be. Babies who are just days away from discharge have gotten it and died. I’m thankful my favorite nurses are here today/tonight and all weekend. We need the best people caring for him.
We’ll get through it. Just a few steps back.
