Teddi’s Recovery: Back to the Hospital

 Hello Everyone

Not such great news today, as I announce that Teddi has been re-admitted to the hospital

After 36+ hours of nausea and vomiting, we decided to take her into the E.R.  She was very dehydrated and extremely low energy.  This was a sudden turn around from the steady improvement she had been experiencing, and is very disappointing for her.

Yesterday, around 2PM, she was admitted to the E.R.   The fluids and hospital grade nausea medication helped her out a lot, but the peritonectomy team decided she should be admitted.

So that meant the no-fun-day-ruining-make-you-want-to-scream N.G. tube up the nose was back, with regular aspiration of her stomach contents and she gets a bed in the oh-so-joyful hospital ward.

Currently they are discussing the possibility of an intestinal blockage, reviewing C.T. scans and talking about a minor surgery to expand her stomach outlet (which is apparently something that is needed post-peritonectomy).  I will keep you all posted.

On the flip-side, Teddi’s pain has significantly lessened and her various wounds are healing up well without any complications at this stage.

The bouts of nausea and readmission to hospital have been really hard on Teddi, and she could use some #LOVE! So won’t you please send her messages, leave her loving comments below or consider donating a reflexology massage?

More Soon,
