It is a mindset, hospital stays, you have to be able to relinquish some control over your child’s care, and be at the mercy of everyone else’s timeline. I, personally, have to stop trying to plan in my head when things are going to happen,
when if I learn to do this, I will be less disappointed when things don’t go “according to plan”. This morning Lucy woke early with telll tail signs of a fever, high heart rates, sick eyes, and temp of 101. Lucy’s culture’s from yesterday and they day before, if I forgot to mention it, are positive for gram positive cocci. The hope is that it is the same weird bacteria, because if it is we are well on our way to treating it. Dr. R is not sure, but he said he wouldn’t be surprised if she is growing something else…ugh. The other thing he mentioned is that she will not be getting a new line this week, which means our stay at the hotel DuPont has just tacked on another weekend. Oh, and we are officially on isolation until we get discharged. What a way to start your day.
Our little love bug is not feeling well this morning, I really hate it when they are sick. Prayers for her health and my sanity would be very much appreciated.
