Hi everyone - I wanted to let you know that there will most likely be little to no content posted here for a while. My two year old, Nathan, threw up Monday morning, had traces of blood in his diarrhea, and was admitted to the hospital Tuesday night. Wednesday morning we were transfered to a larger hospital, and Thursday night we were transferred again.
Nathan has something called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, which means he got a bacteria his body couldn't handle and his kidneys went into shock. The bacteria is gone, but his kidneys are not doing well. He is going to need dialysis, which they cannot do on a pediatric patient at the second hospital we were sent to, so they transferred us via ambulance several hours to our third hospital late last night.
They are saying he seems to be stabilizing, but at this point but he is definitely not improving. Hopefully dialysis will give his body a big boost and turn things around.
Please please pray.
And from last Sunday...
Yesterday, he was only hooked up to an IV, so when he said "mei tai?", I was easily able to put him in my mei tai in a front carry and give him some closeness and snuggles. That was very comforting for both of us. My husband has been doing a lot of wearing too, with our 14 month old. He's been using the mei tai and our HugaMonkey as well to give her some security and comfort and have hands free for carrying bags, etc.
