They had to add the tube back to her mouth that sucks junk out of her belly. They had taken it out when she was extubated day before yesterday bc it was not getting much out. Well....it came back.
She has had a lot of fluid on her lungs and a lot more drainage from her chest tube than normal. That was all enough to concern me this morning and then the doc told us her white blood count was high this morning which might be the sign of infection but they didn't want to give antibiotics just yet. The reason being that she needed all the good bacteria in her body and they didn't want to kill it if not necessary....that's how I understood it anyway. She is actually back up on meds and the vent because of this set back. She was super uncomfortable all day.
Her X-Ray did not get any worse and her vitals along with her gasses were good so they are watching her closely for more signs of infection. Please pray this is not the case! They said the white blood cell count could be due to stress/pain. I am very worried. Of course the worrier and pessimist comes out in me.
No clothes today.... But soon!.....
