Back for a Tune-up

26 Jul

Yesterday my lil Ladybug started to vomit a lovely shade of green, a call to the surgeon brought us back to the children’s hospital last night. Combine the fact that the ER was empty and the surgery team was waiting for us, we had an X-ray done and a room in 2 hrs – a new record for us. It also helped that she recreated the Linda Blair puke fest scene in the ER, narrowly missing me. 

The hope is that it is just an ileus, meaning her gastrointestinal tract still hasn’t kicked in after surgery 3 weeks ago.  Today she will go for a contrast test (injecting contrast into g tube then take several images to see if it’s moving or there is indeed another bowel obstruction), and another  X-ray to see if the air in the tummy has moved since her last X-ray at 01:00 this morning. 

I’m hopeful she just needs some extra time to get things moving and we’ll be home within the week.
