I always forget how sucky hospital times are. Add in the strict no visitors policy and it's double hell! We got Peanut back on formula feeds, she is tolerating them fine. For now we are stopping the blenderized diet, to give her a chance to settle back down.
Her blood sugars were low during our stay, so I am waiting to pick up a glucose meter and test strips. I am NOT excited about doing this to her! Hypoglycemia is a symptom of her metabolic disorder, but it is one that she has never had before unless she was REALLY sick. She was not symptomatic at the times that they tested her yesterday, but her sugars were still low. We'll see if they stabilize now that she's home and better, or if she's truly having episodes.
After two days of IV's only, the retching stopped and she was fine. Her blood counts were all fine, but they are still saying it must have been some sort of virus. Whatever it was, I am glad it's over!
Thank you for the posts and prayers. I really appreciate them! And to Emily's mom from The Tender Scribe - I got the cross. It is SO amazing! Did you make it yourself?? It's gorgeous.
