Super Ivy!

Pin It Just a quick update, I hope to have longer ones and lots of pictures this weekend.

But for now, Ivy was taken off the ventilator this morning. She held her own all day. They are now starting cpap treatments every 4 hours just as a preventative measure. She is more awake but not awake.. if that makes sense? The real Ivy is not back yet, still in a daze.

She is bloated!! Not with fluid, with air. Her little baby tummy that is usually the boniest flattest tummy I have ever seen is the size of a VW Bug :(  If she does not look better in the morning they will have to do a procedure that requires sticking another tube down her throat! Oh Lord please let her toot or burp or whatever it is that will relieve her of this miserable froggy belly!!

Sweet baby girl takes it all on like a super hero as usual.

 Thank you for your prayers!!!!! Pin It

Oh Sweet Super Baby! :( She's been through so much. She's so strong. I can't wait to see her running around. Her sister will have a wonderful life with this little super companion.
God bless you all.

I hope Ivy can work that trapped air/gas out on her own, but it's not very likely. It requires movement and she's not quite there yet. I can tell you from experience that it HURTS and it moves from the belly to the chest and HURTS WORSE! Almost as bad as surgery and nothing short of knocking you out will relieve the pain. I've had over a dozen abdominal surgeries. I've been checking on Ivy every day...many times a day and just keep hoping she turns that big corner. Hang in there mom!!

Oh that gas from the air they put in you can be soooo painful!!! I sure hope she has done something by now! That pain can last for a week. I'll as tooting to my prayers! ;o)

I can't wait to read a longer post and see pictures. Prayers are still coming strong!

SO thankful things are going well!!! Also praying her tummy goes down! XOXO

Checking back frequently today for progress with the tummy and for more pictures as promised by her mommy. Can't wait to see the picture of her running with family. Sounds like from others that tummy can be painful so prayers that her medical team, including the ultimate physician can find a way to resolve it without any more pain.
