A Memorable Mother's Day

I am gonna keep this short, just a brief update on Keegan and our little family. He has been vomiting (only when in the sitting position) since Tuesday. After one emergency trip via ambulance to the ER on Thursday, them telling us it was only viral, it not getting any better and a return trip to the ER on Saturday night; we were life flighted from Evansville to Indianapolis at 2 am on Mother's Day so our magic and wonderful doctors at Riley can do what they do best.
Right now Keegan is sleeping, he has been in pain for the better part of 48hrs and up until admission in the ER last night hadn't really eaten much of anything. He has been resting comfortably all day on an IV and is to have no food till at least tomorrow depending on what his bowel decides it wants to do. The problem is he hasn't really pooped but about 2 times in almost 2 weeks, we tried suppositories=fail, we tried prunes=fail, we have tried pear juice=fail, and we tried apple prune=fail. We tried a warm bath with no luck and the vomiting in the upright position continued.
We are being monitored closely and should hopefully know more tomorrow about why Kee has been so sick! He hasn't even wanted to eat solids which is a RARITY! So if you pray, say a little prayer for us I want my baby to be better soon! He was just returning to his normal self after the Hydrocephalus and shut placement!
Happy Mothers day to all moms!


  1. Oh Beth, I'm so sorry to hear this. Big, big hugs to all of you guys. We are praying for Keegan and hope that he starts feeling better soon. You guys are such amazing parents having to deal with all of this!

  2. I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm just an hour away if you need anything - I mean it. We make trips to Riley all the time and I actually need some stuff from the safety store so it wouldn't be out of my way at all.

    Good luck to your little guy and you'll be in my prayers.

  3. Prayers for a fast and speedy recovery!!!

    I hope they figure this out soon!

  4. I have him on my daily prayer list. God bless the little guy. Luv, Sharron

  5. Ryan and Beth,
    I will add you both and Keegan to our prayer list. There is a prayer group every Tuesday, and they pray for an hour or more.
    They bible says by Jesus stripes if we have faith and ask for healing in Jesus name it shall be done.
    I am so sorry Keegan has to go through all this.
    There will definitely be a prayer chain for the little guy and you all as well.
    Riley is a miracle hospital. My nephew was born with left-heart hypoplasty at Riley, and he had to have 3 stages of the Norwood heart surgery done there to reconstruct the blood flow to and from his heart. He is 13 years old now, but sometime in the future he will need to have a pacemaker. So there is always hope.
    God Bless you and I hope you feel the prayers flooding in.


We love feedback; however, if you have nothing nice, encouraging, uplifting or insightful to say don't say anything at all. Thank You!
