Anyway - all was good and then at the end of my shower - Kyle flipped out- really ... screaming, shaking, turning purple - he has only acted like this one other time and that was when his hernia was stuck! So I checked it and after an hour of trying to reduce it called kyle's surgeon. He said I could try for 30 more minutes and the chances that it could strangulate were slim but I would have to bring him in. So after 30 more minutes of trying to reduce it (something I have been able to do everyday for the almost 4 months he has been home!) I could not. I even made my NICU friend come over and try - medical professional - not mommy NICU friend! After no luck from both of us - I headed down to Hermann.
GOOD NEWS! It is 2:30 am and we are home. Kyle hernia was stuck but not strangulated! There was an air bubble in his bowel (better known as "gas" to us moms!) But she said the air bubble was trapped and keeping me from reducing it. This has not happened to kyle before. She squeezed the air out and then instantly could reduce the hernia. She was able to show me how to do this incase it does happen in the future!
The highlight! - I got to see one of our NNPs. It is always so fun to get to show these people the Miracle babies they have grown up!
So anyway - I am thankful that we did not have to have surgery. If a hernia is strangulated it is immediate emergency surgery. Kyle is still on oxygen and has not worked out all of his lung issues. This is the reason surgery would be dangerous fro kyle right now.
So we are great - tired - but great! Thank you for praying!
