Jaxon had blood venting out of his g-tube this morning. I took pictures of the overnight diaper (that was venting his tube) and then the morning diaper that had 3hrs of stomach contents in it. I sent the pictures into the GI clinic at the hospital. I received a call back requesting Jax have a blood sample drawn at the hospital and to do a couple other things:
- Only give Tylenol rather than Motrin (I had given him Motrin overnight which is Ibuprofen).
- Take him to the ER if he is pale, uninterested in normal activities or has black stool.
- Use his uresil bag to catch his stomach contents instead of the diaper so I can measure what comes out.
- Try giving him Mylanta 4x's a day for 3 days to coat his stomach.
I told the doc that Jax has been up a lot at night screaming, and he's vomiting a lot more again. The Zoloft seems to be losing its effectiveness.
So we went to the hospital and had his labs done. I haven't heard anything tonight, so either that's a good sign, or the doc didn't receive the results yet. I assume they will call me tomorrow. I was pretty nervous all day about it, but am starting to relax and hoping for the best. I'm not seeing much blood at all anymore draining out. It always seems to be something, doesn't it? Poor Jax...he had two RSV shots in the morning and then blood drawn in the afternoon. My heart breaks for him.
When we got home from the hospital, Brady kept rubbing Jaxon's head very gently and it was so sweet to watch. These babies steal my heart.
