I had a perfect pregnancy and was induced at 39 weeks on the 4th July with my twin boys, Joseph and Jesse.Weighing 6.4 and 6.5 pound. Both boys took straight to breast feeding. Jesse passed his first stool but Joseph didnt. After 2 days of Joseph not feeding, pooing or weeing and vomiting bile the nurses at the hospital finally agreed with me that something wasnt right. The doc came and took one look at his belly (wich was quite distended) and he was transferred by ambulance to the JHH NICU. I was totally freaked out!!!
Jesse and I followed in patient transport.
Joseph spent 8 days in NICU before he was diagnosed with HD. Once he was diagnosed, we were allowed to take him home. We had to do daily bowel washes and wait for him to fatten up before he could have his surgery.
August the 4th, Joseph had 10cm of his bowel removed with pull thru surgery. We then spent another 7 days in hospital recovering. We went home and 2 days later he was admitted again as he wasnt passing his wind and was quite bloated. The poor bugger.
He is now home and doing well.
We are dialating him (which breaks my heart as he screams) 3 times a day. We also still have to insert a tube to allow his wind to pass. I cant wait for the day he has a pooey nappy that he has done all on his own.
Its nice to find others going through or have gone through the same. Hope all is well. smile
