After five years of trying to have a baby, we were blessed with Baby Isla (eye-la), a princess warrior born at 25 weeks & 3 days only. It was an emergency C-section and our miracle baby needs to be in Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) for the next four months to help her develop in full term.
Seeking for your prayers and any form of support to help us get through these trying times. We have set up this account to help raise P4M to keep Baby Isla in the best hospital care.
Hello, this past week was a little bit tough for this little one. She's weaning off and on the ventilator and her blood culture showed gram-positive, this is the cause of her infection. A bacteria found in our skin. Dr says it happens when they do a peak line for IV. The good news is it didn't reach her brain. The CSF culture was negative of bacteria growth. Her eye scan findings of ROP Stage 1 Zone 2 didn't change as well as her brain bleeding.Her creatinine level is on a high and the doctors have been trying to get the right dosage of antibiotics so they extract blood every other day to check and had blood transfusion twice in a week now. I know Baby Isla is fighting as she's been actively moving. In Jesus name she will get through this. . . .
It would have been a great day but it turned out not to be. Isla's stats became better after her blood transfusion and her feeding increased from 1ml to 2ml every 2hrs, her white blood cells count improved as well indicative of her recovery from infection. However, we learned that she had an overdose of her antibiotic, 150% more of what she's supposed to take, a mistake made by her bedside nurse 😢😭😭😢😥 They took some tests to check any symptoms of OD, to check her liver and kidney, tests that are unnecessary that will take some toll on her already fragile body. So far all tests are okay for now, they will continue to observe and do another test in a couple of days. It is very unfortunate and why it has to happen to our little princess. I think I'll go crazy from this rollercoaster of emotion of doubt, pain, love, anger, gratefulness. But we have to stay positive for my little girl. We know she is a fighter and we have to fight this out with her.
