Gwyneth Rose's distention is all but gone! The barium enema they gave her did the trick (meaning it helped her make a few very large poops)! I went down to visit with her around 2:30am this morning, knowing that they had taken another x-ray at midnight and hoping for a good report. The nurse practitioner showed me the x-ray they had taken at 4pm yesterday compared to the one they had taken at midnight tonight, and the difference was incredible.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers!
They said they may wait a little while to let her intestines and tummy relax, but they should try the CPAP again and start feeding her both within the next few days, which is great news.
Please, pray with us that the distention is a thing of the past, that she will tolerate the CPAP well, and that she her belly will love the breast milk and her body will begin growing more because of it.
Tricia still needs your prayers. I'll share more when I feel comfortable doing so, but just know that the past 48 hours have been a huge setback for her.
Thank you (back to my break)!
