MY TRIP REPORT INDEX
Only just seen this thread, Hope everything is ok and he is home soon.
Sending lots of pixie dust,
Thank You Johnie for being there for me and to everyone for your kind thoughts and pixiedust . Yes, hes ok, Thank God ! I was still pretty shaken when I got home . I slept through the worse part of it . He was taken by ambulance to our local hospital and transferred to St Lukes . The staff was incredible . I can't say enough good things about them .
Dr Bailey explained everything to us . From the test to holding him . She asked whom in the family has acid reflex and Kim & I both put our hands up . She then said, ah, I see both sides . I said, yeah, like right now I feel like I'm going to puke . She walked over took my coffee out of my hand and threw it away . She directed me to the gift shop for Tums & a Ginger Ale .
Jared will now be on a special formula which has rice in it . He had an IV of Zantac to dissolve what was inside his tiny digestive system . We have to hold him over our shoulder to burp him and hold him like that for 30 minutes after each feeding . And he has too sleep elevated . We're getting a wedge tomorrow .
And yes , the fractured collarbone was undetected after birth . The doctor said its common when they are helped out . Gee Whiz !!!
Also, I have to add what great parents Pat and Kim are . Kim hears every whimper and although she really panicked, Pat took control and called 911 . Patrolman Lance (a friend) recognized the address and in Pats words was there in a flash . He took Jared , pinched his nose and breathed into his tiny mouth . Jared left out a wail . Pat said he got on his thingofabob and radioed and expletive word too the EMT's or I'm taking this baby in the patrol car .
Thanks Again to you all ! Going to lay down now and try to catch a few winks .
My mother in law said in Europe & UK its common to have a wedge . When she gave birth, she was distraught the US didn't have them here . Tells me over the pond is smarter than wee .
poor little mite - so much to deal with so early!
I am so glad you have such good people supporting you Tinker!
And I too send you much love and support!
Gareth had reflux as a baby and it has recently reappeared in his teens! But the Zantac does really help him so I am sure it will help Jared too!
Next trip - Bali! (March 2015)
