Thursday Update

Last night was by far one of the longer nights for us. Delaney went to sleep about 7pm and woke up around 9pm feeling a bit nauseous. We were able to get her back to sleep, but around 1am Delaney had her first episode of vomit. Daddy cleaned up while mommy comforted Delaney and tried to get her back to sleep, but again at 1:30am she vomited again. Daddy only got about 3 hours of sleep last night. We were able to get Delaney back to sleep close to 3am and from there she slept until about 5:30am. We hate to see her get sick plus we can't afford for her to lose weight. The dr said if she begins to lose weight or can't keep food down we may have to give her IV nutrition and/or hydration through her Broviac at home. Today was the first day Delaney really had no energy. It's not easy watching your baby feel sick all day long knowing there is nothing you can do for her. Majority of the day was spent napping and watching movies with the occasional playtime with brother. We drew labs at 6am and luckily her counts are still good enough that she will not need any transfusions tomorrow, but rather Monday. Delaney did not vomit for the rest of the day. She did not eat anything today on her own, so we tried as best we could to catch her up with NG tube feeds throughout the day. This was successful, but we would still like to see Delaney eating. The rest of the night was very mellow. Delaney was asleep by around 9:30pm and our nightly clean began. We are hoping as the days pass her nausea will subside. Thank you all for the love, prayers and support. GO TEAM DELANEY!!
