Baby Goes Back to the Hospital

The area around Bridgette's ileostomy has become extremely red and nasty looking, so we took her back to PCMC tonight. She will be there until at least Monday. They are going to try and get the skin looking better and find an ostomy bag that does not leak after two hours. Bridgette has been a very good baby and has not complained a bit!

Dr. Black will be examining her on Monday for the hernia of her stoma as well. Thankfully the hernia goes away when she stops crying, so hopefully he will give the thumbs up on letting her go home. We sure hope we can come to a good solution so she can live at home and have a great first year of life.

The first thing I thought when reading your other post was: follow your intuition--if nothing is wrong, the worst that can happen is that you had a short drive to Salt Lake. Best wishes on getting everything figured out.

We wish you all well! Bridgette will be in our thoughts as always. The boys said to give her a kiss.

I'm so glad for you guys that you have a great children's hospital so close. At some point, I'm pretty sure, you will regain some sense of calm...even if it isn't the kind of calm you expected!

Hang in there!
