Cedie Lynn Mock's Blog

Cedie Lynn was born on 6/16/05 in Memphis, TN. She arrived 6 wks early. Cedie spent the first 11 & 1/2 months in the hospital. Although she endured many surgeries and spent 2/3 of her life in hospitals, she was a very happy, beautiful little girl who was full of love and who was loved by everyone who met her in person and online. She now watches over all of us as our own little angel.

Monday 4/17/06 Trach Scare

Cedie had a great day with the exception of a traumatic event around 2pm. She was propped up in her boppy pillow taking a nap. Her nurse was at a desk outside of her room charting when she heard all of Cedie's alarms going off. When she went into Cedie's room, Cedie was blue and her heart rate was dropping. Her nurse thought that she was having one of the episodes that used to be typical of Cedie (she hasn't done it in quite a while). The nurse started "bagging" her but her coloring and her heart rate was not improving. More people came in to help and then they realized that Cedie's trach had somehow slipped out, effectively taking away her airway. They did a quick trach change, bagged her some more, and she came back to her normal self. She was understandabley upset (heck of a way to be woken up) but her nurse rocked her for a while and she was happy again. When I suctioned her at 5:00, her secretions were a little pink tinged but they cleared up and she had no further issues.
Cedie was supposed to do 8 hrs of CPAP but it was cut short at 6 hrs because of this scare. She will do 8 hours Tuesday.
Cedie weighed 6.88kg (15.2 lbs) today.
She took 12 cc from her bottle but then she fell asleep.
No word yet on when she will have her heart cath done. Should be sometime this week.
