Today there was talk of going home again; however, when we met with the doctors this morning they said Lila's fluid intake goal was 28 ounces. Yesterday we tried really hard to push liquids and made it to 10 oz., so when I heard 28 was where we needed to be, I knew we were not going to make it. She needs extra fluid because of her kidney issues. And you can lead a toddler to juice, but you can't make her drink.
After lunch we decided that the NG tube was going to be necessary, as much as we didn't want it.
A particularly nasty battle to get her medicine down confirmed our decision, but that didn't make it any easier.
Actually getting the tube in was pretty traumatic. It took two attempts and three nurses. We had the music therapy lady in the room playing music during it all. Bless her heart. And poor Lila. Let's all pray that she leaves the tube alone because if we have to keep putting it back in...
Looking forward to going home tomorrow hopefully a restful night! Thank you all for your prayers and support!
