Day 3 at MGH and an NG tube?
Today has been horrendous. Poor P has had several attempts to get IV access, between the PICU doctors, and the IV team, and floor nurses. It has been horrible. The doctors came in this mornign and decided that they wanted to put in a special NG tube that goes past the stomach, and therefore whatever went down it would not be able to be thrown up. They are now looking inot malabsorption syndromes, more specific immune issues, severe allergy issues etc. And due to the reaction he had to yesterdays antbx they are unsure of how to treat the intenstinal infection... So we wait. For now please keep him in your prayers. I will update this evening if I can
