Possible Blockage :(

He was a little fussy all night even without anything in his stomach. He recieved Ativan at 2:00 am and then settled down. Dr. Such Neibar has added Prevacid to his medication list to help his tummy feel better and is going to check for a blockage to cover all the bases. She said there is a "small" possibility of a blockage that may make the process of moving food through go slower. He will probably go for a stomach X-ray today to see. His Miralax has been decreased so if he does have a small blockage the food won't just go around it so we will have a better clue. The nightly suppository seems to be doing the trick just fine. His feeding is currently back on half speed (20) and he looks to be slightly uncomfortable but not too bad. Now that the storming is a lot less severe and he is tolerating touch more, we are asked hold him more often as part of therapy. Sounds like good therapy for us as well as Charlie.

Nothing better than holding babies. I'll enjoy following these doctor's orders!

Best kind of therapy there is!

Any idea when you all might head home yet?

All that is left to do before heading home is to recover from the cochlear implant surgery (Monday), get his feeding figured out and medication consolidated.

We have followed the ups and downs of little Charlie ever since you started this blog. We don't know you, but we read constantly to see how this tough little kid is fighting thru his trials. Just know that you have a lot of people (family, friends and others) that are praying for your boy every day, including us.

We have no doubt that little Charlie will keep fighting and that he will continue to be a wonderful light to all those around him. --the Johnsons, SLC

What could be better than holding and cuddling your little one??? Enjoy your therapy sessions.

I know that you all have a lot on your plate. But you are all so strong and the people who post are so dedicated to praying for Charlie that I would like to ask everyone who reads this to pray for a 3-year-old little boy. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor and is not doing well. Those of us near this family are trying to get as many people as possible praying for Jack and his family.

Thanks and keep up the good work with your precious Charlie. I hope you are all able to go home soon.

Angel- I don't even know if you remember me but a friend referred me to your blog...imagine my surprise when I saw my 7th grade locker partner! You look so much the same as way back then at Millcreek Jr! Charlie's story has really helped me, kept things in perspective. We keep you in our prayers! You have an incredible family.

Love,
Jamie
