Setback #2

Alright. I'm taking back that last post.
Olivia started feeling a whole lot of pain last night around 9:00 or so. She screamed for a good hour and a half until she finally got some Fentanyl. That put her to sleep for most of the night. When checking her g-tube, the nurse pulled back a lot of blood. The residents have their own theories on this, but the nurses have never seen this happen before. I'm with the nurses. They know way more than the residents. I'm anxious to see what the surgeon makes of this. So, they stopped feeds again and gave her a break. They started around 2:00 with 5 ml an hour and here we sit. She seems to be tolerating the small amounts fairly well, but obviously she needs more than that. The doctors should be making rounds soon, so we will know more after that. Hopefully.

Seems to me that sometimes nurses are the best source of information!!
