June 14th, 2009

I think Kinnick is feeling better, but the diarrhea is really giving her a lot of stomach pain. We can't quit the antibiotic until she's taken it 20 days. The doctor said to give her 10ml of Mylanta 3-4 times a day for the stomach pains. She also said to give her 1-2 oz of Pedialyte anytime she has diarrhea. This is supposed to help replace all of the fluids she's losing with the diarrhea. We've only given her 1 dose of Mylanta and it seems to be helping. Last night she woke up at 3:00am crying with diarrhea in her diaper. It took me 2 hrs to get her back to sleep. He sats were mostly mid to upper 90's last night, so things are definitely looking up. If she has a good night, I'll try to reduce her O2 tomorrow - maybe to 1 lt. Her lungs still sound bad and she still sounds out of breath. We're still doing lots of breathing treatments. Poor girl, she just looks so skinny.
