Today has been another bad day. Mason's worse for sure. He has a virus in his intestine called NEC. They had to put a pic line in him. It has been super scary and I've been a wreck! The first time they tried to put it in it didn't go. He got dehydrated and looked terrible! It is probably not the best when the doctor says he is concerned and you can feel it too. The pharmacist and a doctor came and gave him a blessing (love the priesthood). He looked quite a bit better after and they were able to get the second attempt in. He is on 3 antibiotics, they've stopped feeding him breast milk and has a tube down his throat sucking out the air. It's very difficult to see my baby look like this!
I feel really blessed to have had the doctor we had because they think they caught it early (he has been amazing!) I feel like I've been run over by a couple dump trucks. I think they might have gone in reverse and run me over again. But right now he is sleeping which is good, and he doesn't seem to be in a lot of pain, which is great. I just love this little guy and need him to get better!
Also my awesome sister-in-law, Heidi, showed up right when this all started. She is staying with me tonight (my whole family is in Bear Lake) and I have really needed her today!
I'm just praying that Mason has an ok night tonight. I'm scared to leave him. Maybe I won't...
