Sam’s going for drips

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

The last feed that went in without being vomited was approximately 36 hours ago. Sam has lost weight and is showing further signs of dehydration. We’ve consulted the doctor and he has asked to admit Sam tomorrow morning. We’ll be sending her to PCMC as Dr. Choy will be available there in the morning.

We’re hoping that this time, the doctor will be able to find what is and prescribe the proper medication. May God continue to guide each of us on what to do and continue to heal her.

No conclusion

Monday, May 31st, 2010

We brought Sam to doctor today and he checked her. Samantha was sent for brain and abdomen ultrasound. Her urine sample were taken again for another lab test.

The results from the ultrasound came back with negative for Plyloric Stenosis, the problem which Sam’s brother had when he was 3 weeks old. Doctor also has ruled out UTI as the urine sample taken did not contain any signs of infection. However, the ultrasound on the brain shows that there is sign of water in it. This would need further MRI on the brain for clearer picture. According to the doctor, this was present during the first week when she was in PCMC.

Now, the cause of the vomiting is still not found. We would need to observe her condition for the next 2 days. During this time, complete hygiene is to be practiced so that viral infection could be ruled out too. If the vomiting still continue for these 2 days, she will be admitted into hospital and get thorough examination.

As for Samantha, she is slightly active compare to yesterday. We could still see from her eye that she is tired too. bWe’re hoping it is just a reflux and could go away after few days.

God, please guide us to find the cause for the vomiting.

Vomiting and Lethargic

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

These 2 days, Samantha has been vomiting and shows signs of fatigue.

She would at times woke up from sleep and vomit. At times several minutes after feeding. We’ve contacted the doctor for advice and he informed that there were no UTI as per my previous update, but the white blood cells has shown abnormal counts. We’re to bring Samantha back to hospital on Monday for him to check and get some antibiotics. Gosh.. Additional medicine again.
