Our Puke-Free Streak is Over

So much for no puking.  Out of the blue with no warning, Abby got sick tonight after being asleep for over an hour.  She was on her side and puked all over her picc line.  Not good.  So in addition to washing her up, cleaning her hair, changing her clothes, and remaking the bed, (all while standing and being in pain!) the poor girl had to have her picc line dressing changed (with lots of tape removal) at 11:30 pm.  No fun.

If you read my last post, you know she was already teetering.  This just pushed her over the edge.  I held her after the nurses left and just let her cry.  Thankfully, she's asleep again now (still needing oxygen) and hopefully the rest of the night will be calmer.

Julie....
It is no fun to throw up anytime, much less when you are already suffering through so much physical, emotional and mental pain!! Poor little girl!! Although I am sure it was heart-wrenching for you to hold her and let the tears fall afterward, {Oh.... I just feel for your sweet Mama's heart!!} I am glad that you let her cry. I know it is hard.... But Abby will thank you for it later!! ;)
