Aubrey Posted November 9, 2011 Share Posted November 9, 2011 They've got baby in line for the xray machine in NICU. I'm trying to just think about the machine & not hear only "NICU." He hasn't had a wet diaper yet (36 hrs), & his belly is tender. The dr just came in to talk to me & said he may have blockage in his intestines & be dehydrated. The range she gave me is something like cleaning out the intestines to surgery. None of it life-threatening, all fixable. Right now I'm calm because I tend to go into Spock-mode when there's a problem. Rationally, if they can fix it, why would I freak out? Once he's fine, I'll probably freak out plenty, though. But you guys know so much & pray so effectively, I thought I should let you know/check w/you. I can't even tell if I'm remitting info or asking a question, but there you go. Oh, background (it's in the birth story, but that's long)--they've suctioned his belly 2 times for amniotic fluid. He wasn't eating, but after the 2nd time, he ate really well--went from not latching on for 6 hrs or so to eating every hour on the hour (all night, of course!). He was spitting up a lot. They were concerned at first because it was clear/white & foamy--indicates amniotic fluid, they said, but since then it's been green, & they really don't like that.
