Samatha re-admitted

Samantha has been continuously having constant vomiting even after the last admission. For the past few days, we saw that she became lethargic with sunken eyes. She don’t even cry for feeds anymore, only cry when uncomfortable. She has very mild absorption of food that we feed her, even with breast milk.

On Tuesday, we made the choice to admit her again to hospital. This time, we’ve admitted her to KL General Hospital. She was immediately put on tube feeding and oxygen gas. 10ml on every feed with 5ml of water through the tube.

Doctors there are trained for metabolic disorder patients. Samantha will be reassessed again on her symptoms.

Her lactate acid is now at 17 mmol/L (normal human is 2 mmol/L).

On Wednesday, her feeding is controlled by a profuser machine which will evenly feed her 30ml of milk over a period of 3 hours. She stills vomits but hardly could notice milk stain now. She has also gained some weight from 2.9kg on admission to 3.15kg this morning.

Doctor is suggesting that Samantha to continue using the profuser until she gain enough weight.

Get well soon Samantha.

    Sorry to hear about this, Julie. I hope and pray that KL GH will be able to help little Sam more especially as there are specialists.

    If you have time (and energy) do get to know the other parents there. You always finds out a lot of useful info this way.

    God bless and watch over your little girl! She sounds cute 😀
