Support for Baby Parker
Baby Parker is here. He is currently in the NICU and will be for a bit longer. Please support Nate and Nikki by donating money for expenses so that they may spend their time caring for him. Please give what you can. Updates will be posted as hopeful progress is made.
However, on Day 7 home, Parker started to become very irate around 8:45pm. We tried feeding, bouncing, etc. and nothing could console him. Although we've only had 6 Days with him, both Nate & I could tell that his crying fit (which was to the point you'd have thought someone was physically hurting him) was abnormal. His body started wrenching up as he was crying, started to struggle with his breathing, and very quickly he started to deteriorate and his coloring changed and Nate had to provide a few puffs of oxygen to help Parker. We had to call 911 and we are now back at Dell Children's.
While at Children's Parker's condition quickly moved us out of the ER to IMC where they had him a few hours before moving him to PICU due to his condition worsening. We were greeting with familiar faces and have a lot of the same care team supporting Parker. This is great, as they are very familiar with his condition and background. We've had to sedate and intubate again. Thus far, findings have shown two issues going on, his heart and a respiratory infection.
It's been a bit touch and go these last few days to figure out exactly what the course of action will need to be to get Parker back on the road to recovery. We will keep everyone updated once we know more.
