Bay update!

She is doing great now!
For those of you who didn't know, our little Bay Bay had her tonsils and adenoids removed & another set of tubes put in her ears Aug. 21, which was a Thursday. On Sunday we went to the ER because she was dehydrated. She would not drink! We tried everything from frosty's to Sonic drinks to SEVERAL different kinds of Popsicles. You name it we probably tried it. They pumped her up with IV fluids and we were on our way home. Well, she still was not drinking so Wed. we ended up back in the ER. This time the Dr. came and said that we were going to be admitted oh, this was after over four hours in the ER!! It was a shock, but on the other hand it would mean a break for us and Bay would not struggle so much! They kept an IV in and kept her full of fluids. She still would not drink. Friday after school, Koko and Lou came up to see her. Bay loved it!! She was so happy to see them! She even ate spaghetti with them. She drank two cartons of chocolate milk!! It was great! It was the first time she had eaten in 8 days!!!! That night her IV blew, it wasn't good anymore, and they had to give her the antibiotics orally! After puking all over herself, the nurse and me, and having to take it again. . . she wouldn't drink in the morning! By about 2:00 Sat. she started drinking again and we were released that evening. Now she won't stop eating!! It is good because she has lost weight! We are all doing much better now. That week we were not getting much sleep at all! We are thankful things are back to "normal"!

They did do another hearing test, ABR, while she was asleep after surgery. She passed the left ear but failed on the right ear in the lower tones. We go back to the Pediatric Audiologist in early Oct. We will find out what's next. We started speech therapy this week.
This one was taken on the 31 by Koko.
Both of these are before surgery. She so does not want to be here!

On the way home from surgery.

Poor Bay! I'm so glad that she is doing well now. What a blessing.

Sideways pics -- when you pull up the little window in blogger to add pics, then you select the ones you want, just right click on the thumbnail of the photo and there should be an option to rotate it.

I am so sorry that Bay had to have surgery. I guess in the long run it will be a good thing. My Cierra had to have eye surgery when she was 4 and it was so hard. Bay is such a sweet little girl. I am glad she is doing better.
