The NICU doctor just called to update us on the girls. It appears that Cameron does have NEC - they are calling it medical NEC and they are treating it as NEC. Cameron's belly x-ray is showing what appears to be neumatosis ( I guess that is how you spell it ) in a corner of her bowel. So, they will continue to not feed her for probably 10 days and have increased her antibiotics drastically. I have to say that this is one of the hardest days for me as a mom because NEC is the one nasty stomach infection that the neonatologist warned me about before I had the girls. The doctor says that he is encouraged by how well Cameron is doing clinically and hopes that she will respond well to the antibiotics. Obviously I would not be so upset about this if it were not so serious. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. Pray that if it is indeed neumatosis that it will not progress and that the antibiotics would work swiftly so that she can get better. The doctor was very right and said that we should take this one day at a time and not jump to what could happen - My head knows that but my heart is breaking for my little one. On top of all of that, she continues to grow positive blood cultures for the staph - which is completely unrelated. They have also increased her antibiotics for this and are running blood cultures again as well.
On the other hand I am so thankful for Reagan's report. She does not have neumatosis and her belly x-ray seems to be looking better. Her blood cultures are running negative.
