Appendicitis???

So Baby C gave us a huge scare yesterday!! She started screaming about her tummy hurting around 1pm and continued to scream so off to the drs. we went!!

Here's how the craziness went down:
~took Cana to her pediatrician...both peds. said it was her appendix & sent us straight to ER
~Both ER drs. said it was her appendix...they ordered blood tests and ct scan just to confirm
~Let's just say she is VERY strong & did NOT like getting IV one bit... surprised the drs. with her strength :)
~They started prepping her for surgery & ordered the operating room as we waited for the test results to come back
~Blood tests came back okay...her white blood cell count were high but at the top of the normal range
~CT scan came back kind of funny...funny in the sense that they couldn't see her appendix
~they say that if it was ready to rupture it would have shown on the ct scan but they "can't rule out the appendix, yet"
~sooo, they sent us home with a very drugged up baby...with everyone scratching their heads as to why she is in so much pain....basically, they still think it could be her appendix but it would be at the beginning stage if sooooo
~we have to go back in 24 hours to re-do her blood tests

She fell asleep groaning in pain and woke up perfectly normal today! She is still guarding her right side but she say nothing hurts. She's eating & playing just fine. So, we'll continue to watch our peanut closely and praise our Lord for healing her body!!
We were so relieved that she didn't need surgery. The last time she was under general, she stopped breathing and they had to perform cpr to revive her...very, very scary!!!!!! God's peace was such a comfort as I rocked my crying baby in ER yesterday. Knowing He was in complete control helped me to remain calm but my heart was breaking with every painful moan.

I started to think about our little Solomon. His sn is a complicated one and we know he will be subject to many yucky, painful tests once he's home and it's highly likely he will need surgery. I am really struggling with how difficult it's going to be on him! Cana has had almost 3 years to bond to us and to trust us completely. Solomon will only be home a short while once all his medical stuff will begin. Oh my sweet boy, we love you so much and are praying for God's healing hand!!!

So glad she's feeling better! My sister had to postpone her little one's bday party today due to similar pains in the bday girl. They are at the dr now.

glad she's doing better..I know those aching pains we feel when our babies are screaming, as I just cried and cried with baby S the other day when she got burnt...
