Hey girls - just wanted to let you all know I'm going to be a little missing for a few days again - Last night Caden started throwing up so we took him to the ER and he was readmitted. We're not sure whats going at this point but Robyn knows about as much as I do. I'm confident the little guy is going to be okay but I hate to see him going through it all again. I'm hoping we just might get to come home tomorrow (a week from when we were released the first time, ha!)

Sorry to keep up and going - I haven't slept since sunday night/monday so I'm too exhausted to drag my laptop with at this point and hopefully will be a little more reliable soon! If you could keep my little guy (and Parker, too, don't want him catching any hospital cooties) in your thoughts it would be very much appreciated ::

Carrie you and Caden are in my thoughts. I hope he is feeling better by now and he can soon go back to being a healthy little boy.

Hey girls in a huge hurry but i just posted an update in my DDC so here it is copy and pasted.

ALso, amanda, I just remembered I completely forgot to mail out your prize (we've been here since monday basically) so its going to be a little late - sooo sorry!

update:
We've basically been here since Monday - its been really rough. I'm worried about my supply due to stress, lack of sleep (7 hrs in 3 days), etc so I just popped on one of the hospital compuers to grabe the lactation cookie recipie and MIL is going to make me a batch (and I've started fenugreek to be safe - any other tips welcome) and thought I'd update.



Everything was going great and then Monday night Caden started throwing up so I took him into the ER - they did an ultrasound and xray which didn't show anything - we considered a CT but wanted to avoid it if necessary due to the radiation. Caden was admitted for observation and was doing great! We had a rough patch Tuesday morning but that was more due to them trying to make him give a urine sample and he'd rather let his bladder explode but I finally got it. Anyway...



Yesterday he was doing great, drs couldn't believe how great he looked and we were released around 1:30pm. Once we got home he started saying his belly hurt and I knew we were going back. I hoped it was just gas and it wasn't in bad pain and everyone just said watch him but I knew. by 7pm I had enough and called the surgeon and at 8pm we decided to take him back to the ER to have the CT scan done.



The CT scan showed a small bowel obstruction and he needed emergency surgery. The hope was that it was a simple adhesion they could snip and be done - sadly that wasn't the case. They had to fully open my little boy up and remove part of his bowel I have got different answers from different people from exactly what happened but the basic is that something didn't heal right and adhesions or whatever caused one part of the bowel to loop around and connect to another part and will all the inflamation it closed the bowel off at that point. The surgeon did get it undone but with all the inflamation and how the bowel was acting he was worried we'd end up in here for a third surgery so he removed that part (several inches) of Caden's bowel. He has promised me this is the end of it and I pray he is right. My little boy has been through too much - his belly is all sliced up, 3 admittances and 2 surgeries in 1.5 weeks.



He is in a lot of pain - the morphine isn't doing too much it seems. We did get him up and walking a little just now and it seemed to help.



Sorry for typos - no sleep and no spell check on the hospital computer, boo to IE! And I think I hear Parker fussing so I should get back into the Ped wing.



Please keep Caden in your thoughts and prayers - we are all at the end of our ropes and some moments I wonder.. I don't know. We're doing okay though.

Oh wow Carrie!! I really hope the surgeon is right and Caden doesn't have to go through any more. Makes me want to cry that he has had to go through all of that. Still keeping Caden and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Really hope he gets to feeling better soon!!

Carrie I am hoping and sending positive thoughts that this is it for Caden. The poor boy has been through so much. I hope he is on his way to recovering. Sending you lots of hugs and healing thoughts.
