Acidosis

We are back in the hospital.

Little girl took a nosedive on Friday... we at first attributed it to the anesthesia wearing off but on Saturday night when she emptied her stomach we knew there was something seriously wrong.

So off to the hospital and tests.

Her blood work agreed with what we had already figured out. Her ketones had skyrocketed after fasting for surgery on Wednesday. This caused a host of reactions including extreme dizziness, slurred language, lethargy,  nausea and vomiting.  

It’s a bit of a vicious cycle she is in. Vomiting equals fasting which increases her ketones which keeps her in acidosis. 


They are doing as much medically as they can... we have a few options to get her ketones down but the reality... little girl has to eat her calculated meals and get back on track.

So we are waiting it out here hoping anti-nausea meds will kick in and she can start eating without losing it.

Would again covet prayers for our little imp.

  1. OH, dear, what a nasty roller-coaster these last few days have been! I hope the ups and downs and dips and dives will soon settle down to a pleasant, level ride instead. Praying for better days ahead.
