I don't usually start threads here but I am asking for prayers
My daughter had a "routine" tonsillectomy on Wednesday. They are hoping to cure her apnea so she doesn't have to be on oxygen at night (along with her epilepsy, autism, ehler's danlos, and g-tube, she has now begun not breathing and we have had to rescue breath for her several times in the last couple of months)
so far she has refused all liquids and foods, spiked a high fever (she is on alternating oxycodone and advil right now...she never registers pain but has been crying...it is the only noise she makes...and clutching her throat)
she also has about a 2 inch long and 1/2 inch wide area on her cheek where she had tape placed when she was in surgery. She is allergic to tape so it actually pulled all her skin off...right now, despite our best efforts, it is scabbing over and continues to ooze.
she seized today and rubbed her face against the pillow and pulled the scab/skin off again.
we could use some prayers. we have been able to keep her hydrated through her tube but if she goes much longer she will lose all oral feeding skills.
if she is still running a temp, we will need to bring her back to the hospital.

You're in my prayers. D17 had hers removed some years ago, and it was awful. She, too, did not react well to the pain and bleeding. She wound up going into cluster seizures and was readmitted for another 4 days. I think they wound up sedating her so she was not awake, which also helped with the seizures. I pray for a good outcome for you. Hang in there, sweetie.
