Friday, 28 March 2014: Three Hundred and Sixty One Days Old.
We’re still in hospital and although Ayla has perked up a bit her symptoms haven’t changed.
After being on a drip all night Ayla had put on 200grams by this morning and we thought she was on the mend.
The doctors removed the drip and asked us to give Ayla 10mls of an electrolyte fluid every 15 minutes or so via a small drinking syringe instead.
But since then Ayla has had four bouts of diarrhoea and a massive vomit, which meant that by her evening weigh-in she’d lost 75grams in just a few hours.
Ayla definitely seems happier though and despite having a mild fever all day she’s been smiling and waving and blowing kisses at everyone.
But Hubby and I are worried Ayla’s health is simply restarting the same cycle it’s been on for the past seven days; mild fever > upset stomach > lack of appetite > high fever > severe lethargy > REPEAT.
I guess only time will tell (or the test results we’re still waiting on!) and for now it’s another night in the isolation ward.
