The last two days, Lindsay has been doing just great. She has been very happy and smiling all the time. I just can't get enough of her!! Doctors adjusted her oral dose of K when she was moved back to moderate care and then today they brought it back down a bit to try and prevent too much of a drop after her diuretics. Last night she caused quite a stir because after her 6pm diuretics, her K dipped to 1.8! That is waaaaay too low! Now, before, she had a problem when she hit the 2.0 mark so needless to say, 2 attendings, one fellow from the PCTU, and a few residents just watched her for a minute to see if she would have the same drop in heart rate as before. Well, now they are stumped because she didn't even have a PVC! (irregular heart rythm) Meanwhile, nurse Mindy was hanging her IV dose of K and the next draw was just fine. So, pray this adjustment goes fine and that she doesn't go that low again! Man, we need a vacation!!!
Otherwise, things are going well and I am looking forward to my husband and boys visiting this weekend. Not sure what we are going to do since it is -5 degrees!!! Yes, all of you southern folk.
-5 degrees!!! So, i might have them bring lots of movies and some microwave popcorn. Maybe a few board games too. All for now. I will post more pictures later. The wireless internet has been acting up here at the house and the managers said that it seems to do that when it gets super cold outside. I hope Dad and Sue are having fun in Florida. (sense the sarcasm??) ha ha Hope you have a good time!
Love to you all!
