Hi all,
 
After 7 weeks of days filled with horrible cramping, bloody D, fever, D waking her up and 11 days in the hospital, Hailey hasn't gone to the bathroom in 24 hours. I can't believe it! Maybe the meds are starting to kick in?
 
Just wanted to share the good news! :-)

Thanks! Hailey is eating a lot at this time..........probably due to the steroid but at this time it is a good thing as she recently lost 13 lbs and she only weighed 78 to start.
