Further updates

15 Jun

I feel very rested after a very good night’s sleep at home last night. My procedure went very smoothly, a little bit painful but not too bad. We got to see bubs which was very nice and from that side of things, everything looks very good. We won’t expect the results until at least the 27th June so a bit of a wait ahead.

Plenty to keep our minds occupied with Tilda still in hospital and still vomiting. We came back to the hospital after my ultrasound and were immediately taken downstairs so Tilda could have one too. They wanted to check the position of the Jtube and make sure it was in the right spot. Unfortunately as she was in the middle of a feed, they were unable to see it so after fasting from 3am this morning, they did another one at 10am. And still couldn’t find it indicating that food is not moving through her system as fast as it should be. Whether this is the cause of the vomiting is unclear, we have not yet had a proper conversation with the doctors. Who are quite elusive. And frustrating.

There is a possibility of a new medication that might be able to help but we are waiting approval from her neurologist as it may interfere with some of her anti-seizure meds. It is used to help move things through her system.


Ok, the gastro team have just visited and we now have approval for the new medication which we will start straight away. We will also resume her feeds at a slower rate and take it from there. There is still no concrete answer to why she is gagging and vomiting but let’s hope this new med will help her.

Thanks to all for your thoughts.
