Another night spent at the hospital...

Well, last night Kealani started violently throwing up (projectile and all!) and didn't stop for hours! At one point she started getting really pale and then lathargic (sp?), to the point where the doctor described her as "mildly unconscious (sp?)" and that we needed to take her ASAP to the E.R. Talk about SCARY! She just laid there lifelessly, not responding to us, etc. and I think you all know that that is definitely NOT like her, even one bit. Finally, she started to perk up more and at least look toward us when we talked and even got a half-smile here and there by the time we left the hospital, so we knew things were gettin' better -- though she still didn't stop throwing up for several more hours. It was to the point that all she had left to throw up was bright yellow stomach acid (too much info? ok, I'll stop! LOL!). Anyway, thankfully she is doing better today and has been able to keep down what little she's eaten, and seems to be hydrating herself again. You know I have to have pictures of EVERYTHING to document in her baby book so here's some I took at the hospital last night. Please pray for our baby's health as she's had quite a rough month or so with having R.S.V. and other illnesses back-to-back; she probably doesn't even remember what "healthy" feels like anymore, poor baby... =(

That's terrible. You guys really have had a rough time lately, huh? She looked so dang cute yesterday when I saw her, I can't believe you wound up in the hospital. We are DEFINITELY thinking of you all and praying for Kealani's speedy recovery and for some sick-free days in the future.

I'm so glad she is better; that must have been very scary! The pictures sure didn't show the usual smille Kealani!
