The vomiting urge has subside

All praises and glory be to God.

Today is the 13th day Samantha stays in the hospital. Her conditions are getting better with her urge to vomit stopped. The urge gradually lessen after blood transfusion were done on Wednesday and Thursday last week. This apparently helped to further reduce her lactate acid from 17 mmol/L to 10.1 mmol/L. That is great news for now.

She will still feel pain in the stomach and discomfort from time to time due to the acid level and air in the stomach. Sam is also very clever girl. Even if the medicine is fed via the feeding tube, she can still “feel” the medicine taste and would try to cough/vomit it out. Hopefully she will get over with it and take it willingly. 🙂

Doctor is now monitoring her progress and is expecting to discharge her by end of this week.

Julie and I are doing well. We’re blessed with Julie’s mom who is helping to take care during the day while we are at work.
Thanks to all of you for your concerns and prayers.

God is listening and answering our prayers. May all praises and glory be to our God.
