Kayli's New Year's Eve 2011 in the hospital

Kayli was admitted to the PICU at a local hospital because she was having heart rate drops and horrible seizures.  She has been in the hospital since Thursday afternoon.  She has had a battery of tests to find the reason for changes in her seizure activity.  We know she has an infection(s) but can not figure out where.  There is suspicion she has more than one infection.  She was started on an antibiotic and has been doing well with it, no allergic reactions this time! Yeah!  Tonight, I noticed something in her feeding tube that looked like blood.  Upon further examination, there were a LOT of clots in her feeding tube.  The clots were tested, and they are blood clots from her stomach.  We do not know as of yet why (bowel obstruction, twisted bowels, ulcer) and the surgeon is already in an emergency surgery with another emergency surgery lined up after that one.  She is cramping in her stomach, but otherwise she is quiet and is not crying anymore.  I will update more tomorrow.  Please keep her in your prayers.  From our family to yours, Happy New Year!!! <3
