My youngest sweetest girl has been admitted into the hospital for the second time in her short 3 year 3 month life.
The first time she doesn’t really remember. It was the day after we were released from the hospital. I delivered her via c-section just 5 days prior and she was jaundiced. That stay lasted less than 2 days. She was a very compliant little baby girl.
This time she’s in because she has pneumonia caused by RSV. She started really not feeling well on Thursday. She was seen in urgent care & they did the chest xrays & blood draws. We went home with the pneumonia diagnosis and possible UTI. They prescribed Tylenol for her fever and amoxicillin/augmentin for the pneumonia. Fast forward to this morning. She still isn’t doing well. Not keeping her fluids down including her medicines. She wasn’t sleeping well because her cough would wake her up. Her fever was still high. So the doc decided to admit her.
The IV placement was difficult. She cried a lot but was tired enough that she couldn’t fight. Right now they’re giving her strong antibiotics and the Tylenol/ibuprofen combo for her fever. Were also doing chest percussion treatments to loosen the yuckies on her lungs. Poor thing has to wear diapers again because she can’t control her peeps and poops. She hates it.
She was extremely sad and crying when she found out her daddy & Lia had to go home. She kept crying “I want my daddy and sissy. I want to go home too. I’m all better.” Breaks my heart.
The machine for oxygen saturation keeps beeping because her level keeps dipping below 91%. They might give her oxygen later if this keeps up. She’s tried to pull her IV out 5 times already while in deep sleep. I guess this momma isn’t going to sleep any time soon.
The doc says she may be released Monday but most likely Tuesday. I’m so happy she’s in good hands. The Lord is watching over her and a ton of people are praying for her quick recovery.
