Hope has not thrown up, gagged or retched since the formula was stopped and the breast milk was started. Clearly her problem is with the formula and not the potassium. She is a lot happier and is feeling more like herself, although we are still lacking in the smile department. We were able to get a couple teaspoons of pureed meat into her yesterday and hope she will continue eating it today.
After the vomiting stopped and the diarrhea decreased, Hope had way more fluid on board and her low dose of diuretics was no longer enough. Last night the fluid in her lungs must have shifted and her oxygen level plummeted. She spent some time on 10 litres of oxygen to keep her going! She was able to get back down to 1 litre and given a larger dose of diuretics to help her get the fluid off of her lungs. Stopping the vomiting and diarrhea was good, we didn't anticipate how quickly it would happen and the fluid it would leave in her little body. Hopefully we can balance things out today and get her off oxygen completely!
Sadie and I are heading over to the hospital to pick up Hope for her big day and bring her home. The hospital has been amazing to work hard to be sure we can have her with us for today. I'll try to update tonight on her big day!
