Back up at Primary's

Tuesday night Zoey started to not feel good. She woke up Wednesday morning with a diaper rash. Thursday came and her diaper rash got worse and started to blister and bleed so I took her to the doctors. They gave me a prescription strength cream and off we went. Early Friday morning she started to poop blood so we took her to the doctors as soon as they opened. They did some tests and said they thought everything would check out fine. They gave me a special non-dairy formula to feed her and sent us home. We weren't home for 30 minutes when they called back and said that her tests didn't turn out fine and that we needed to go up to Primary's right away.

We still aren't sure what is wrong yet. They are doing some tests, but we won't get the results back until tomorrow and some on Monday. There is a possibility she has Necrotizing Enterocolitis which is poor blood flow in the baby's intestines. This may lead to an infection in the wall of the intestine or bowel. It can cause a portion on her intestines to die in which case she will need surgery to have that portion of her intestines removed. They are also testing for a dairy allergy and infections.

Hi its Tylers mom. I just wanted to let you know that Tyler had the same problem. The doctors treated him for NEC and he was not allowed to eat or drink for 5 days!! I hope Zoey doesn't have to go through that. They also had to give him a blood transfusion for the blood loss. It was so hard, he was so miserable!! I will keep Zoey in my prayers!!

Just doesn't seem fair to have more problems, when there was the worry over her heart. What is this intestine problem caused from--unrelated? I am sorry you and the poor thing have to go through so much. We will pray for you, and let me know if you need anything-I am only about 15 minutes away now:)
