We are not having a good day. Seems like everything is going wrong. So where do I begin....
When we got here her hemoglobin was 6. A little on the dangerously low side...they transfuse when it drops below 8. I had no idea thought that it would be that low. So she is getting a blood transfusion.
She has some bronchitis in her lungs. Some crackling. Not a huge deal BUT ....her ANC is already down to 60. The cold/cough is making her miserable. The doctor is starting some zithromax to try to help.
Her spinal did not go very well. Yelling, crying...they had to give her more meds. Which makes her more upset actually. She immediately starting vomiting up all the phelgm (she is not allowed food) But she was not allowed to sit up, she has to remain laying down after the spinal. Throwing up and laying down don't go very well together. She was begging and crying to be able to sit up, but we couldn't let her. This throwing up spell lasted about 45 minutes.
She has started a fever. Again. it keeps going up and down, but at last check it was 101.8...which means that she is now being admitted and they will start her on IV antibiotics also. She just keeps crying that she wants to go home. It is sad. She hasn't been this miserable in a long long time.
And it is snowing like crazy now. And we are both here with no overnight bag or anything. It seems like it would be much work to try to get home, pack a bag, get our other kids, and get the stuff back here. So we are considering just roughing it with the clothes on our backs. Or maybe sending Jerad out into the elements. At least Ally has her Bobo...but she did throw up all over her blanket.
No matter what...we have a sick girl on her hands and I just ask that you pray that she feels better very soon.
