Everything always seems easier to deal with in the daylight. It was a long night last night. I hope we never have to go through another scare like that again. I finally fell asleep around 3:30 this morning, and then they woke us up at 5:00 for blood work (which thankfully they were able to get from her IV) and a chest X-ray. For today, it looks good. There is nothing leaking out of her esophagus, which is what we are hoping for. They want that abrasion caused by the battery to stay closed.
Kellsey slept pretty well last night, she was a little restless, but that's normal, and this morning she is a little cranky. She's fine if no one touches her... Or her IV... Or any other wire coming out of her. I think she's been thrown off her routine for so long that she's just done. I'm sure as the day goes on she will make friends up here and perk up a bit. ;)
She continues to be on complete tummy rest and is getting IV fluids only. They want to give her esophagus a chance to heal and not risk anything refluxing up from her belly. Maybe by tomorrow they'll let her have tube feeds if all goes well, but she won't be eating by mouth for some time.
Long term they are worried about scar tissue forming where the battery was and so she'll be followed closely by GI throughout her healing process. All the nurses and doctors have been great up here and they are taking wonderful care of Kellsey. Hopefully in a few days I'll be posting that we are out of here!
