The bean v-e-t told Cole's mama that he would be in the hospital at least another month. They are gonna start him on a sugar-free formula today & see how he does on it. They have an idea what's wrong with him but his mama couldn't remember what they called it...she's 19, away from all her family & friends & pretty overwhelmed by all this.
Auntie Lori (Cole's grandma) hasn't been able to go back down because she tripped up the steps, then fell down the steps at her house. She has a hairline fracture on her arm & wrist & has to wear a splint on it. She also has a hairline fracture on her foot & ankle & has to wear a big boot-like thing on it & use crutches! She can't drive for at least 2 weeks. Good thing Granny didn't name her Grace!
As for us, we're still eatin, sleepin & poopin...our normal efurryday stuff. Thanks again for all the purrs & prayers, they mean the world to us!!
Baby Cole is still in the hospital, still having awful diarrhea & the doctors are no closer to finding out what's wrong with him. He can have nothing by mouth, he's getting nutritional feeds through his central line. The uti & e-coli are cleared up so there's obviously something else going on. It's just wearing on everybody, especially little Cole. Please pray that they find out what's wrong with him so hopefully they can treat it.
You know how Mama was whimpin & whinin about not getting to see Baby Cole? Well, she got a chance to go afterall but she couldn't because she came down with pink eye...WTH?? She"s been wipin her goopy eye & runnin into things cause she can't see furry good. She managed to get herself to a FastCare clinic & got some antibiotics but she can't be around anybuddy for 24 hrs. Hmmmmmm...what about us?? We don't want her nasty pink eye!! Oh well, as long as she doesn't get her goop on our food or treats, maybe she can stay.
Baby Cole seems to have stabilized again. They aren't sure what's goin on with him. Auntie Lori sent us a new pic of him, so if you wanna see somethin real cute this is it!
Friday Baby Cole was doing so good there was talk of him getting to come home this weekend. But Saturday he started power puking & power pooping, all of his levels that had been back to normal went sky high again & they had to put in a new IV to rehydrate him again. Monday they are going to take him to surgery to put in a central line. Efurryone is so upset & wishing they would figure out what's causing all this & fix it already!!
Mama wants to go down & be with him & his mama, but she can't drive in St. Louis...she does good to drive around here. Auntie Lori's fiance` is mad at Mama for pointing out that he was being a jerk to Auntie Lori, so she can't ride down with them.
Anyway, if you could keep the purrs, grrs & purrayers going, we would really appreciate it...maybe send a few to Mama so she doesn't go completely crazy with worry. Thanks efurrybody.
Mama's too tired to hunt for a picture, but we want to wish Sammy a Happy 9th Gotcha Day!! Mama can still remember seeing him in the cage with his brother at the animal shelter...she poked her finger in to pet his brother & Sammy promptly pushed him out of the way so HE could get to Mama! Mama said he chose her, so he came home with her & "Daddy".
Baby Cole is doing much better thanks to all the purrs, grrrs, purrayers & prayers! He still has a ways to go, but he's getting better & that's what counts. Two attempts this week to put in the picc line were unsuccessful & Mama's not sure what the baby v-e-ts are gonna do about that. We'll let you know when we find out more.
Thanks again for your concern & your comforting words. They mean more than we can ever say.
First off, we would like to thank efurryone for their purrs, grrrs & prayers! It really means so much to all of us. Thank you also for the badge, it's sooo precious!
Now, on to the update. Baby Cole is out of picu for now. The doctors say it's still day to day, but things are a little better. He has to have a picc line implanted in his little arm for the high power antibiotics he'll be taking for the next 10-14 days. They are going to do an ultrasound on his kidneys to check for any abnormalities. When he was admitted to St. Louis Children's hospital they found he had a severe UTI & e-coli. Not sure what other problems he may have. We are just praying that the antibiotics take care of everything.
Again, we are so very grateful for your kind words & your prayers. May God bless you all!
Guess we don't get to be happy for long :-(
Our little Cole was airlifted to St. Louis Children's Hospital a few hours ago. They're not sure what's wrong with him but he is in very critical condition. Please send purrs & purrayers for our little blurp, he needs all he can get. And if you can spare a few more, his mama & grandma could use some too.
Yesterday at 11:19 am, Mama got a new great-nephew: Cole Alexander!! He's our Auntie Lori's first grandchild. Mama's gonna go check him out this morning but we told her NOT to bring him home! He's pretty cute, but we don't need anything like that here...
