Bit of a scare

Friday, August 15, 2008

Last night around 10:30, Caro started to have a fair amount of blood coming out of her trach tube and we thought we were going to have to go the er, based on a talk with one of the ENTs on call (not her normal ENT - just another one in his office who's not a pediatric specialist).

But, then we called her pulmonologist, who told us to give her some special breathing treatments, which mostly stopped the bleeding. Then this morning she woke up w/a temperature and a high heart rate. We were told to give her some Motrin and that got rid of her fever until just recently when she woke up from a nap w/a fever of 102.6 and a high heart rate again. She also has some mucous coming out of her nose.

We'll see what happens, but I just wanted to update everyone and ask that you remember her in your prayers - we really hope she won't have to be admitted to the hospital.
