Poop and Discharge

Well, since I couldn't post yesterday, I will give you a little update. Yesterday was a little frustrating because we were told "no" again about going home because she was still pooping too much and not taking enough fluid in to maintain what was coming out. They wanted to hydrate her some more and see how she does and if her stools subside a little. If she tolerated a "bunch" more fluid, then we could leave tomorrow (which is today). So, we were bound a determined to make that happen and the princess succeeded!!! However, what started this whole thing was the concern of her higher than normal heart rate thinking that this was a little to do with her being dry. Well, after a fabulous day of drinking and lots of peeing, the heart rate didn't hardly budge and her rate awake and playing is still in the 150's. This should be around 120-130. (that seems to be her normal anyway) Things that make you go mmmmmmmm. All in all, she tolerated more fluid and they don't seem as concerned with her heart rate so..........we got to go home (hence the discharge title in case you were wondering what that meant!! ha ha ) YEAH!!!! Thanks for all of the prayers! They continue to work. God is good!
Love, Suzie

So glad you're all home safe and sound. I had to comment because, ironically, when our son was in the NICU we had the exact opposite predicament...we were "praying for poop"! We couldn't go home until he pooped which was a sign that his bowels were "awake" again! I never guessed that I would EVER be including poop in my prayers but it worked! Glad it worked for you, too!

Glad you all are home! I know you'll be happy to be in your own bed again tonight. Will they being doing anything to figure out why her heartrate is higher than normal right now?

Excellent ... glad you were able to bring the Princess home. I hope her heart rate doesn't continue to be an issue. Do you have a pulse-ox at home to help you out in monitoring it?

Yea! I hope you are able to figure out the heart rate situation. I will pray that Lindasy continues to do well!! She is such a doll!

I love the way you title your posts! :-) So glad to see that you're all back home again. Hopefully her heart rate will make its way back down to her normal range. She sure does like to keep everyone on their toes, doesn't she?
That's why we love her!

Hugs,
Aimee & Family

So glad you are home! Everyone does better in their own beds! Prayers still going on to get her heart rate down, but maybe being home will do it for her. God Bless all of you! Sara D

Hope you're all warm and snuggly together this morning at home! Lindsay stays in our prayers...as all of you do, too!
Taken from the nuts-o show Jon and Kate Plus 8..."we're a family and we're in this together!" At least you know this family is ALWAYS behind you!!!

Love you~ Rebecca
