Good evening my lovelies how are you all? Are you ready for the weekend?
Well Natalie is back home now safe & sound. As most of you know Natalie has been through at the Alan Shearer centre since Monday so we took these few days to decorate her bedroom cus its near impossible to do it when she is here..........hence why it still hadnt been done. We finished the last of the painting yesterday & then all we had to do today was wallpaper the one wall, make drapes & wait patiently for the wardrobes to be delivered.
However the Alan Shearer centre phone about 5 last night to say they were having a problem with her peg site. As a lot of you know Natalie is fed through a peg in her stomach as she cant handle any solids or liquid via mouth. The carers couldnt get anything in her out & they phoned us so we told them to check it hadnt burst. A peg stays in an open hole in her stomach & inside it has a small balloon that we fill up with about 6ml of water obviously that balloon can burst at times which then means the peg is not secure & if a peg falls out the hole can then close & seal in a matter of hours. They took out any remaining water but couldnt get the peg out so the only thing they could do was take her to the A&E department. Unfortunately it became a long night as they had been a crash & a stabbing apparently so it was really busy. By the end of the night none of us could get the peg out so they had to admit her for observation & insert a NG tube down her nose & throat to be able to give her her important meds. If it couldnt be removed today it would of meant an operation to re-site it & while this is not a big operation Natalie has had over 20 ops in 18 years so I didnt want her to go through yet another.
Anyway as luck has it we managed to free the peg today.....a valve inside had broken stopping the balloon from fully deflating which is why we couldnt get it out........phewwwwwwww....
So we are back home & Natalie is in bed watching a dvd..........yeah she doesn't sleep well lol.
Hopefully we will get her room finished over the weekend & then I can start Jakes as I have 4 wardrobes arriving any day for his & his sisters bedroom. I have to say tho that hubby has done most of it as he wont let me do much bless him.
