Nothing monumental...

...to report yet. All of Megan's blood tests regarding her organ functions are OK. Her urinalysis was good. Her white blood cell count is double what it should be. I guess this means that she is fighting "something." We do not have her blood culture results to tell us if she has a bacteria growing there yet.

Megan still has no fever. Good. Her oxygenation levels have returned to normal. Good. The medication to stop her vomiting seems to be working. Good. She has not vomited any medications in her g-tube since 9pm last night. Good. She tolerated a small amount of pedialyte in her j-tube last night. Good.

They have started small amounts of her formula in her j-tube today. They are giving her about an ounce an hour and will increase it by an ounce every four hours as long as she keeps tolerating it. She is still taking the anti-vomiting medication. After she gets back up to her regular formula dosage, we will start weaning that to see if she is able to tolerate everything then.

In the meantime, we wait for the cultures to come back and see if that points to the reason why her white blood cell count is elevated. She looks good and is making eye contact and responsive to us. This is good because when she is really sick - she doesn't do that.

That's all for now. Thank you everyone for praying. Boy, do we need it.
