Moderate Care to a Suite!

Well, the title means that Princess Lindsay thought that her birthday celebration should be spent with concierge service along with 24 hour room service!!! Yes folks, she got her #10 suite in the PCTU for the occasion. Miss Lindsay wasn't feeling herself today and not keeping her feeds down since 3pm this afternoon. Long story short, with the attention of 4 attendings!!, they didn't want to take any chances with her crashing in Moderate Care, so they made the decision to move her to the PCTU hopefully just for the overnight stay. It started out with noticing that her heart rate all of a sudden spiked up to the 170's and a slight fever, which go hand in hand. Then she started to act very irritable and just not herself. She had barely even taken a nap all day and was uncomfortable. Cultures were drawn, blood gasses were taken and came back just fine, and the consensus was that she might be a little dry since her lasix at noon didn't have a very good result which was only 26. Her normal after lasix is around 80-100. This means that she didn't have much to get rid of. So, after a bolus of fluid and a short nap, she was much better but doctors still wanted to move her just in case. So, tonight before I left the hospital, the princess now has a courtyard view, privacy, concierge service, Mary Poppins was playing, and pedialyte on the food menu. Praying for the move back to Moderate Care tomorrow. Whew! What a day and mom is exhausted! More tomorrow.......
Love, Suzie

Little Miss Lindsay deserve nothing but the best!!! Especially on her 9month birthday! I always feel so much better leaving Owen when he's in ICU. I love the one on one attention they receive!

Praying that Lindsay can go back to her moderate care room tomorrow, because that means she's feeling better. I'm anxious to hear if the cellcept is doing it's thing?! I'm sure you are too!

If it works, I'll let UCLA know. ;)

PRAYERS to our princess!

Oh my...I guess Lindsay just wanted some special treatment on her birthday! I'm reading this late so I'm hoping that she is doing much better and is back in her moderate care room tonight. So sorry, Suzie, that YOU had to endure a stressful day yesterday... I hope you got some rest! Prayers for the princess continue... I'll ramp them up a bit tonight :)
Love,
Danielle

Hi there. I stumbled upon your blog and wanted to ask if you would like a free, custom blog design? I run a scheme called "write from the heart" from my blog and I offer free blog designs (backgrounds, headers and any buttons you need) for people who are sick or who have sick children. It's my way of giving something back to people. If you are interested you can find out more information here http://thepimpmyblogblog.blogspot.com/search/label/write%20from%20the%20heart. Thanks :)
