One of my premies in the NICU had two stools with blood last night. She's had two X-rays and both have shown a small blip of "something" a potential irritation, some sign of stress or infection. I dunno. The dr said it did not look like NEC because the looks of NEC on an X-ray are very clear. She also does not show any other symptoms of NEC. However at a NICU they have to treat for the worst and hope for the best. They stopped her feeds and started anti biotics.
I'm freaking out. I'm reading that the mortality rate of the surgery is high and she will have life long issues if NEC is the case. Please tell me someone has had this issue and it turned out ok?
