Preliminary negative!

A had a tough night last night. He stopped breathing. They had to give him oxygen and a dose of anti-narcotic. His lungs had stopped due to the pain medication. After the anti-narcotic he snapped right back. It was the scariest thing I've even seen in my life....never again.

On a better note, the preliminary test for CF has come back negative! They will test for more rare strands but for now, we are convinced, no CF in our house!

He has also eaten for the first time in days. He was alert and looking for more afterwards.

Thank you for your support, he sure is getting those prayers!

Just came over from the Lost and Found to let you know that you three will be in my thoughts and prayers. It all sounds very scary right now and I am wishing you much peace in the midst of everything.

Phew. So glad to hear that things are falling more securely into the negative camp. That must be a BIG comfort to you both.

I can't even imagine the scare of watching my little boy stop breathing. You guys have had so many curve balls thrown at you - hopefully there will be no more & before you know it, the three of you will be at home where you belong!

Poltzie said...

Oh you two must be exhausted with worry! I am thinking about you and little A all the time and wishing him much health.
I'm glad that CF has been banished from your house and hopefully a healthy baby will soon be in it's place!

Jen said...

Wow. What a horrifying wild ride. I'm glad he's progressing so quickly and I hope he continues on the same track.

i can't imagine the terror of the moment he stopped breathing. oh, friends, i am so sorry that you felt that sucker punch. but god bless the doctors who revived him. A is such a strong boy, and clearly wants to be here with you.

may it all be smooth sailing from here. and lots of rest for all of you.

we continue to hold you up over here.

Oh that is wonderful! Thank you God! Holding you all up in prayer.

Robbie said...

I can't even begin to imagine how terrifying that was for your family. Thank goodness he snapped back so quickly. Congrats on his first meal and the neg tests!

Mrs. Bluemont said...

How frightening! I'm keeping you in my thoughts and hoping things just keep getting better. ox

Casey said...

You don't know me - this is my first visit to your blog but I wanted to say that I am praying for you all as your navigate their path ahead.

My daughter stopped breathing once - actually more than once over the years but the first time is seared into my memory. I do not wish that visual on anyone and I am so sorry it happened to you. I am thrilled for the preliminary negative on the testing and over the moon that A is back in your arms.

I'll be back often to check on you and offer you my support. Big hugs to you both - this is such a sucky way to start out on the parenting journey. :(
