Kellsey's GI doctor came in earlier and told my mom that Kellsey will be in ICU at least until Monday. I was pretty surprised to hear that!! I thought maybe she'd be moved to a regular room tomorrow or Thursday. However, they're not even going to attempt to feed her through her gtube for a few more days yet while they allow her esophagus to heal. Even with me knowing that she doesn't feel pain like a typical child, it's still so hard for me to look at her and see her smiling and playing and acting normal and comprehend that she's actually quite sick.
Here are a few pictures in case you're not on my FB page...
In pre-op last night... she had versed here and was feeling... well... happy!
The batteries they got out of her... one is on top of the other. I don't know which one was where.
I try not to think about it. Ugh!
This is how she spent most of her morning... she had the right idea!
On Thursday they plan to do another endoscopy so they can see how bad the damage in her esophagus actually is. They will get a better understanding of things once the swelling is down. I guess that will determine when she can start tube feeds. They will have to watch her really closely because if she refluxes the pediasure it would be really bad on her esophagus. One day at a time...
Anyway, I'm going to go take a hot shower and head to bed... please keep praying for my girl.
