Back in Intensive care

Matthew was transferred back to a special care nursery today for about 10hrs. Now he is back in the intensive care unit with Inflamed Bowel Disease. Absolutely GUTTED.

Awww hun big hugs

Its so hard to see them like that, especially when you feel like you are making no progress.

Remember, he is in the best place.

My best advice, having been there is to ask questions, never sit and stew - I did this for 2 whole days and ended up on the verge of a breakdown because I didn't understand what was happening.

Really hope the little fella gets better soon xx

The Doctors are REALLY good there. I spent the whole day there yesterday and just forgot about the guilt that I was feeling about my other 2 kids and just listened. It felt so good. yesterday morning people would ask me things about my son and I would say "I don't know." now I can say he's had this it was neg and that plus they think it's this and they are going to try that. Not I have no idea what's going on.

Thank goodness it was not IBD or a twist in the bowl. They just think they started him too early and too fast on Breast milk and the blood transfusion he's had explains the bleeding from his bowel because it is the thinnest area so all the extra blood is seeping out. We hope anyway other wise it's exploratory surgery and I don't want him to go through that . So for now it's 5ml feeds every 2 hrs and just watch and see.

Heheeh! I changed his little nappy yesterday and he weed all over me. LOL!!!!!!!!!
