Child in hospital

Postby Salty Skipper on Fri Jun 06, 2014 6:22 pm

One of my girls is in the hospital with a serious intestinal infection. We thought that she just had the stomach virus, and after two weeks of waxing/waning/dr. visits, we took her to the ER at the local children's hospital on Wednesday night. She started getting antibiotics last night, and is veeeeerrrryyy slowly turning the corner. She is so very weak. We are having to force her to take sips of fluids. Please pray that the meds will work quickly and her little belly can heal. She may need a second round of meds, but maybe this is all it will take. This is my "well" kid. Not the one with congenital heart defects. My heart baby is doing fantastic. Please pray her sister can soon come home and play again. It hurts my heart.

You are kind, 4givenmuch, but I've not had the time to be around as much as the old days. Life got hectic. :lol:

Anyway....wanted to check in and let you guys know that it has been a rough weekend. It is a shame how much of an advocate you have to be for the health of your children, yourself, your incapacitated loved ones....it's just unreal, sometimes bordering on the absurd.

Bailey is doing much better. She was on the verge of toxic megacolon when she entered the hospital last Wednesday. It was not yet to that point, but so very close. It seems like she is turning the corner. She will probably be in the hospital a few more days because she still isn't allowed to eat yet, but I think we are on the up side of this.

Please pray that the meds will work and that she will be completely healed. Thank you all!

Salty, I am an advocate for more (less invasive) whole treatments of the body. I know "traditional" medicine doesn't allow for colonics and digestive enzymes, but I do hope you'll do some homework (or send me a PM) on this....I believe it's better for your child and in particular, I believe it's critical to understand this whole side to medicine and health (particularly in this day and age) so that your child and family at large is as healthy as possible.

I wrestled with myself about whether to write this or not, because in all honesty, I cringed when I read she was taking antibiotics for a sick colon, but.....I've done a lot of research in this area over the past couple of years and I genuinely believe the alternative doctors have this right, and it's better for us.....so I will report and you can decide. :mrgreen: :hugs:

She is very much better, drdos! She will likely be discharged either today or tomorrow. Sweet little thing is likely getting the same upper resp. infection we have all had, and as she is getting stronger by the day, it shouldn't be much worse for her than it has been for us. It's yucky, but NOTHING like what that child has been through for almost the last 3 weeks. I'm just so happy to see my little girl's personality emerging again. :grin:

Hi Godstudent,
I appreciate your input. However, in this instance, probiotics and/or colonics would have been too little too late. I should have given her probiotics quite some time back. There is some chance that it could have prevented her illness. In her case, if we had not done something drastic, we could have very likely lost our little girl, or at minimum, she could have lost a significant portion of her colon. The antibiotic she is taking is life-saving in her case, and is actually not absorbed into the bloodstream. It passes straight through the gut. Yes, her bowel flora will be disrupted, and it will take work to get it healthy again. But sometimes...you have to do, what you have to do. I believe that there is a lot of good in alternative medical methods. However, there is a great deal of bunk. Just as there is a great deal of good in traditional medicine, and a great deal of stuff that can do tremendous harm. It's all in the application...regardless the paradigm. :grin: Feel free to pm me the information if you like. Again, thanks so much! And y'all please continue to pray!

Do they have any idea what caused the problem in the first place? Like, celiac? Or candida?

http://thetruthaboutcancer.com/

Hi Salty (and others):
I know...the link says "the truth about cancer" and we're not talking about cancer. For me, it's my central nervous system, for the next friend, it's incurable skin conditions, for another, it's autism.....I have a scientist friend who I've known for about 20 years who came up with a way to manufacture Beta Glucan affordably. Since the people in the field of cancer use Beta Glucan to naturally cure cancer with it, enzymes, colonics and whole foods, juicing, etc...I've been exposed to a lot of information over the years just by having a friend who is rubbing shoulders with all of these more natural cancer treatment facilities both in the US and all over the world.

Recently, the friend sent me a link to a 7 night docu series that focused on treating cancer naturally, and they did many, many hours of interviews with all of the people in the field. They narrowed it down to 7 shows they did over a period of 7 evenings and I watched them, taking in a lot of information about how God's foods work, how God designed the body and so forth. I learned a lot watching and am anticipating delivery of the full episodes of interviews (I think there were something like 27 interviews). This is no "small time" thing here.....we are talking about lots of information in and to the body.

Anyway, since we aren't all alike, it's not one size fits all, and everyone should watch the series and learn from what it presents, even if, right now, and/or even never, cancer is not an issue. The fact is, this is about cleaning our bodies and keeping them clean. This is about the fact that while our medical industry is exceptional in the treatment of more trauma related issues, for a lot of other issues, such as heart disease, skin diseases, cancer, etc, there is a lot of treatment of symptoms and not treatment of the body.

I can't begin to tell you how many of these specialists talked about how the immune system is connected to the gut, and or digestive tract, and how important it was to keep that thing clean and healthy. Little or no processed foods, non gmo fruits and veggies, enzymes, colonics to keep the digestive tract clean....probiotics, and so forth.

It looks like they are offering private viewings of the docu series at this link and if anyone *including SS* is interested, I've provided the link. Its turned my way of thinking around and I am moving in this direction of cleaner eating, cleaner living, etc.....

Im not trying to convince anyone....only wanting to share because of what I know...but I didn't learn by being strong armed and so I put a link up there, if you want it.

SS, so glad to hear your daughter is doing better. How traumatizing it is....mine was in the hospital last year....very upsetting process to say the least. I will continue to keep you all in prayer, sister!

http://thetruthaboutcancer.com/experts-info-sheet/

This link should be direct contact information for those people in the docuseries I linked above, for anyone who might need or want it. I got this in an email from the makers of the Quest for the cure series....and I can only imagine how vital their websites and webpages could be for people who suffer from conditions in the body.

Again, this is not just about cancer...it's dis ease in the body, be it arthritis, fibromyalgia, autism, cancer, heart disease, etc., etc.....skin issues...the list goes on and the information is about cleaning out our gut, eating healthy and keeping the digestive tract/immune system clean and healthy.....

She had taken two rounds of antibiotics earlier in the Spring. Of course, now I know better, but at the time I didn't. It's the same type of antibiotics people take all the time with no further issue. She had a bout of conjunctivitis and a pretty severe ear infection (the only one she has ever had) within about 6 weeks of each other. I would have given her probiotics back then if I had known it would have been the thing to do. But with a young, otherwise healthy child, who eats lots of whole foods, I didn't think anything about it. Then three weeks ago, out of the blue, a full 9 or 10 weeks after the last round of antibiotics, she developed severe, and sudden diarrhea. We're thinking...ok, stomach virus, no big deal. By the weekend the smell was horrific. On Sunday, the 5th day of diarrhea and terrible stomach cramps, my husband took her to an urgent clinic where he voiced his concerns about C. diff because he was working in a nursing home at the time. His concerns were completely blown off. Then on the following Friday, I took her to a pediatrician where they did a rectal swab that came back negative for a whole array of maladies. Then, she seemed a little better, and I actually took her to church on that Sunday. She went to preschool on Tuesday. On Wednesday, I took her back and by lunch time she wasn't doing well. Her stomach cramps were back with a vengeance and the diarrhea had never completely stopped. It was ramping back up again. I knew that she was headed toward sepsis, and we took her to the ER.

Of course, she had C. diff. She was on the verge of developing toxic megacolon. We were so scared she was going to need surgery. She could not tolerate Flagyl and had a significant reaction to it. They switched her to oral Vancomycin, and it is working like a dream. I have my child back. There is lots of work to do to get her back to 100%. The moral of the story, don't ever take antibiotics unless you have to, and keep your gut healthy by eating healthy foods and supplementing with probiotics. If we had known that in the beginning, she likely wouldn't have gotten sick. HOWEVER...the other big thing here is that my husband was working at a nursing home that isn't known to be a exactly a world-class facility, and my child also had this habit of putting her mouth in the bathtub water. We corrected her several times, and she had done it probably 4 or 5 total. But, one exposure is all it might have taken. Even with the best of precautions, a kid is going to be a kid. And of course, she attends daycare, where something may not affect one person the same way it affects another.

Either way, I have my child back. :grin:

SS,

Unless your daughter is on IV antibiotics round the clock... It probably wouldn't hurt to discuss probiotic doses, inbetween the antibiotic doses.

Yes the antibiotics will kill off the good guys... But by constantly replenishing, you don't provide an opening for bad guys like candida to gain a foothold, and the good guys that survive will be stronger, more resistant hopefully.

Then continue the probiotics for 2 full weeks after the antibiotics stop... To ensure strong recolonization by friendly bacteria.

I always try to take the broadest spectrum probiotic I can find.

The bad guys are always gonna find their way inside us... But by ensuring a strong colony of friendlies, they will out compete the bad guys and keep you healthy.

Every time we take antibiotics we risk a GI tracked recolonized by a resistant bad guy, like c. Diff, or candida, or h. Pylori, etc...

I'm glad to hear she is doing better. I hope she has a doctor who understands the need to recolonize with good guys.

may the Lord bless and keep you and yours.

Definitely! We are going to follow up with her primary care pediatrician on Friday, and I'm going to ask for prescription probiotics. I figure I'll go that route for the first round and then use a commercial product thereafter.

:praying:
Gal 2: 14-19 But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, "If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law ( the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus ), died to the law ( the law of sin and death ) that I might live to God. Parenthetical remarks added are mine.
