G Update!

Edited to add: I will be picking up G this afternoon. We'll have some things to watch for, but here's hoping he'll have smooth sailing after his arrival at home!

Thanks for prayers and good thoughts! G's white blood count went DOWN overnight, so the surgeon thinks he is NOT in any danger with the appendix. Maybe a virus. But they will feed him, wait for him to poop, and test that for e coli and assorted nasties before they send him home.

He's still in a little pain, but they haven't given him any meds except his IV fluids. So I think overall he is doing a fair bit better. Here's hoping he can come home today! :]

  2. Whoa, I didn't see this until this morning.

    Lord, I ask that You will clear all of this up with G. Give the doctors wisdom and may he get to go home today. Amen.

  7. So gald to hear that he is going home. I hope his stomach pain is better. Did they have any idea what was causing that, since they don't think it's his appendix?

  11. I hope G is OK now. Having your kid get sick like that is one of worst feeling for a parent. It was nerve racking for us when our Little Monkey was hosipitalized for a week.
