Bond, how is Toby?
Bond, how is Toby?
Hoping he's ok. I ended up with the surgery as a 4 month old.
Hi guys, he's ok now thank you and is home. The second procedure has held up so far, so no need for anything further. Thank goodness. He's very clingy to me at the moment though and still has the pads from the monitor during sedation stuck to his chest as won't let me remove them! After having lots of things stuck on then taken off, plus canulas etc, he's over it and exerting control however he can. Poor little guy. Bought him Lego today as a bravery present. He's had the odd tummy ache a couple of times but think it's just everything settling down, as nothing terrible like before.
Yes Becca they said it's more common in younger kids and babies so at 4 years old he was quite unlucky to get it! His only symptom was intermittent stomach pain and appeared totally fine for hours in between!
Yea it's also more common in boys rather than girls too. Glad he's ok xx
Glad he is better and home now
I'm glad he's home now and better. Poor little guy
Thank you. It was super hard seeing him spaced out on laughing gas when he had the first canula put in (especially when it made him throw up) and when doped up on ketamine to sedate him. I know it was all necessary but I didn't like the thought of it all in his body somehow, I think because he was so different to how he usually is. And ketamine I associate with drug misuse!! I wanted him sedated after the distress the first time but freaked out when I knew what they used! Anyway thank goodness it's over now. Please be aware of this if any unexplained stomach pains for your little ones!
How is everyone else going?
We're struggling with sleep issues at the moment. Takes an hour or more to get Sienna to sleep, then she'll wake during the night and take over an hour to get back to sleep. 18 month sleep regression?? Quite possibly.
We're off on our cruise next week. I'm hoping the rocking boat will help her sleep better.
She had her 18 month health check on the weekend. She's 83cm and 10.8kg. She's saying so much now, and likes to repeat what we say
