This last week has been a week of ups and downs. We started out the week with Daxton having excess vomiting. He wouldn't keep anything down. I would feed him his bottle and then an hour later everything came up. I tried holding him the whole time and not lay him down but that didn't make any differance it still came up. He also had a lot of diarhea. I was covered in poop and puke, yuk! We have been through every outfit Daxton has, every towel and every t-shirt of mine. It was a fun couple of days. Wednesday night he cried and cried. He literally cried from one in the morning until seven am. He stopped crying when I put him in his car seat to take him to his doctors appointment. Ryan and I were both saying that they were going to admit him for sure. Well the appointment went well, Daxton was super happy and smiled and everyone(little stinker) All of his test results were excellent his echo looked really good. The consensus-Gas! He is now on medicine for acid-reflux. They also let me take out his feeding tube so we could see if that was causing some of the throw up issues. After taking that out he has only thrown up twice and it has been minimal amount. It is like night and day differance. He sleeps better, he eats better. He is just a happy boy! He is doing so well. Tomorrow marks our two month mark from transplant. My heart is full! I can't believe how far we have come. I feel so very grateful for our many wonderful blessings.
Thursday night I got to go to the Utah vs. TCU game! Oh man that was awesome!! It was so much fun. I am excited for the Utah/Byu game. Ryan and I get to go together on a date!! Yeh!!
We gave him rice cereal for the first time. He didn't seem to mind it, but we put that on pause until we get all of his stomach stuff taken care of. I will probably start again tomorrow. Ellie was such a little helper, she took lots of pictures for us. She loves her little brother.
We got our final bill from the hospital. Any guesses on how much three months in the intensive care, on a ventilator, and a heart transplant are? Give me your guesses and I will tell you later. This number is not including doctors, just the hospital. All I can say is thank heavens for insurance.
