Watching the Waistline

About 15 minutes after I posted the below update, little Cayman had a massive poo! I mean a real catastrophic failure of diaper function to hold it all!

Oh how wonderful that is!

And then shortly after she laid right back and drank an ounce of her bottle!

Ah, what a relief!

If she keeps this up we'll be heading out those hospital doors real soon.

Feeling hopeful.

This is going to be a short update with a short explanation of things because the wiggly Cayman is sitting on my lap right now while I type this one-handed.

Yesterday evening they started measuring Cayman's abdomen and keeping a record of it over the hours.

The size of it was much too large for the skinny little thing that she typically is.

It's a little smaller today so that's encouraging but not enough to leave us feeling unconcerned.

She's refusing to take liquids orally but is thoroughly enjoying the Go-Gurts.

A belly ultrasound has been ordered and hopefully can reveal clear answers to what is going on inside her abdomen. Hopefully it's just a lot of poo and gas.

I don't think I've ever been happy to read about poop before in my life. This is a first for me. But hooray for this hopefully meaning you can head home soon :D

I've been a silent follower of your blog for several months. As a nurse, I've celebrated the arrival of poop on many occasions, and today I'm praising the Lord for it again. Thanks for sharing your sweet Cayman. It's awesome to read about real life miracles.

Way to go Cayman. I hope you guys will be wheeling her out of the hospital in that wagon real soon.
