Vomit episode

This afternoon Kaelyn vomited. Thankfully it didn’t seem to aspirate into or aspirate enough into the lungs for her to cause any collapse of her lungs.

She desat abit. Thankfully we were around her when it happen so we could do something immediately. I performed suction for her while my helper turned on the oxygen supply immediately.
I think we fed a little too much too fast. It was some fruit purée through her NG tube. But it happen during the feeding. It only happened awhile later when I propped her up and then she started to vomit.
Best not to be too enthusiastic with the additional feeding next time round. Although small amount of food but her underlying condition leads to weak muscles, including those of the sphincter leading to her stomach, this disabling her to hold back food in her stomach.
