Yet Another Roller Coaster

Well the past few days have been a bit crazy. Mattie had a horrible reaction to something (possibly a formula change) on Monday afternoon. He ended up with severe diarrhea that left him completely dehydrated and very very sick by Tuesday morning, with very high heart rate and very low blood pressures. We are very grateful to “A,” one of Mattie’s primary nurses who came in Tuesday morning and alerted the doctors immediately to what had sadly been overlooked the night before. “A” is a rockstar in our book and we are so grateful for her impeccable nursing skills and compassionate care for our son. We watched the nurses and other medical staff pull together to nurse Mattie back to health.

It was a frightening morning to say the least, but we are so blessed that Mattie is feeling better.

We are still waiting for a final determination on the cause of the massive diarrhea, but in the meantime he is being well hydrated with IV fluids.
