Abbie Update

First of all I would really like to thank all of you who left a comment for Abbie, it really makes you realise the friends you gain in this blogging world.
Thought I would give you a little update, if you a tickle stomach look away now!!!!!
Abbie was taken back in last night (thursday) with bad stomach cramps, high temp & ugly rash. They have determined that she defiantely has a viral infection and possibly a water infection test results were inconclusive on the ward and have been sent down to the lab. However thats not the worst news, as you know she has cystic fibrosis and part of that condition affects her bowel movements. Her movements are much thicker and mucusy than ours and if her meds arent working properly it will cause problems, as it can turn to something that is very much like old sticky chewing gum. After a long story cut short (wont bore you with the details) and xrays this morning it appeared that she had a blockage in the bowel/intestine, now this is what she had when she was born and had to have an operation to remove the blockage. Her consultant is hoping that we have caught it in the early stages and we have been sent home today with various medicines to hopefully break down the blockage, so it can travel through the system. We have to go back up on Tue for her consultant to check her over and see if they have worked, if not then she will probably have an operation. So fingers crossed!!!!!!!
