Last night my older daughter had a Halloween slumber party. Anaya seemed to enjoy listening to the ruckus of little girls screaming and running through the house. I had fun playing games with them and freaking them out by putting severed plastic fingers in the pasta dinner. I should have made less, because after that they wouldn't eat it. I had to bribe them with cookies.
Anaya has had a good couple of days since our last trip to the hospital on Tuesday. Tuesday was awful. We couldn't get her feeding tube through her nasal passage. She ended up with a bleeding nose. This has never happened before. I've been doing her tube insertion every week for a year, and this is the first time we could not get it in either side. Both the nurse and I tried. So we took her in to see the pediatrician, who said her nasal passages are swollen and blocked.
I started having nightmare imagery of an emergency trip to the childrens hospital, but my fears were quickly put away when the Dr said we could put the feeding tube in her mouth. She placed it with ease and we were able to feed the baby. Phew!!
On November 18 we have a surgery consultation with Alberta childrens for a G-tube again. Maybe this time they will deem her stable enough to proceed with it.
