We stayed one night at the hospital (Friday night) and Little Miss got some IV fluids, antibiotic to treat what was thought to be slight pneumonia, and let's just say a not so restful night ;-) Having to take vitals at 1am, 3am, and 5am got the princess a little ticked to say the least. She would do fine except for that pesky temperature under the arm get up. lol The girl has been poked so many times but what really gets her is a nurse taking her temp under her arm. Go figure! lol Getting an IV was a challenge to say the least. She still hasn't outgrown her access problem. Took them three times in three different spots to finally get the line in with her constantly screaming bloody murder the whole time. I would say it was about 30 minutes straight. Yes, she napped a little but following that ordeal, we had to take her down for a belly ultrasound to see if there was anything alarming going on. Nothing but hoping that we get a GI consult when we go to U of M on Tuesday for transplant clinic. Lindsay also received an echo which looked just great. AMEN! Rejection is and will always be in the back of our minds and relieved that it wasn't the case THIS time. She received a bolas of fluid and then maintenance from then on. Poor little thing is now puffy all over. But, I will say, it has improved her eating. I just feel in my gut that there is an underlying issue going on hence the wanting of that GI consultation when we go. Lindsay is also getting her ear tubes put in on Wednesday. We got home by noon on Saturday and have been taking it easy getting her to eat, drink, and produce stool samples. Yes, I said it. We have to collect her stools for 24 hours of time. Ewwwww was my reaction. ;-) Oh well. Have to get it tested! So, please pray that our clinic visit for the princess is successful in figuring out her belly problem which is related to her eating and then getting dehydrated problem. It just has to be. Momma knows something ain't right! Here are a few pictures during our stay.
It's a beautiful day up in heaven. Jesus is rounding up his tiniest angels, to go live on earth, and be born. One of the sweetest angels says to Jesus "I don't want to leave, I like it here, and I will miss you". He reassures the scared little angel that everything will be okay, and that he is just going for a visit. He is still not swayed on this idea. So Jesus kneels down, and says, "How about if you leave half of your heart here with me and take the other half with you, will that be okay?" The angel smiles and says, "I guess that will work". But the little angel is still a little scared. He asks,"Will I be okay with only half of my heart?" Jesus replies,"Of course you will, I have other angels there that will help out, and you will be fine." Then Jesus gives the angel more details about his plan. He says "When you are born, your mommy will be scared, so you have to be strong, and when you feel weak just remember that I have the other half of your heart". "Enjoy your time with your family, play and laugh everyday." "And when its time to come back to heaven, I will make your heart whole again. Always remember that you are not broken, just torn between two loves."
