This is a blog for my daughter Scarlett. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. She is my little hero.

Buddha Baby

Dr. Lane came in to check on Scarlett around 10pm and he said "Does she always sleep like Buddha?". So I had to post these pics. ; )   [btw: the answer to his question is no... she usually sleeps on her side]

Well, here's the latest update. She is not line-free anymore. : ( After her barfing episodes last night, Dr. Lane decided that we needed to put her back on an IV drip of nutrients to make sure she doesn't dehydrate. So for now, she has just one IV line in her. Claude said that while I was sleeping (between 11pm-3:30am), Scarlett woke up and he was able to feed her a small bottle and she kept it down. So that's a good sign.

No more bowel movements yet. But she just had another gagging episode at 5:30am. Claude just tried to give her a bottle and she completely gagged and sounded like she was going to vomit, but luckily she didn't. It's kind of touch and go at this point. Come on baby girl... please don't get sent home on a feeding tube!
