A visit to the paediatrician again....
We went to the paediatrician again today because Jodie is ill ..... Her coughing is keeping her and us up all night. She is still, with God's grace drinking 90mls orally (Yippee). The visit to the doc went well, she smiled at him a couple of times and hey he couldn't help but to smile back. (I have to admit I have never seen him smile) I am so happy we changed her to Dr. Halkas, he is absolutely brilliant, God definitely led us to him as I can see the compassion in his eyes when he looks at her. Well, she is ok, her neumonia is better but still there, the viral infection from the gtube has still not cleared up. And of course after 6 months she has fluid in her right ear, which at a later stage (very later stage) will need gromets. He also mentioned that a little bit of fluid might be pushing up from her stomach to her lungs and it would be a better choice to remove the tube. (The tube also made the reflux worse) I am feeling really happy today for a change as my little baby is feeling better and the g-tube will come out soon. Financially we dont have money to remove the tube, after waiting six months but we know that God will provide.
