Fast post before I get back to the hospital. Saturday night, Fearless broke his arm while playing with his bike. Thankfully he had his helmet on; if he hadn't, his nose would currently be part of the pavement. He is in a soft cast at the moment, he'll get his hard cast tomorrow.
Miss Banana was started doing worse and worse; by Sunday morning, she looked...transparent. Dr. C took her to the ER and they immediately admitted her--her heart rate was 199 (should be in the 120-160 range) and her O2 saturation was only 74 (should be in the 94-100 range). The discovered that she has pneumonia in her left lung and they have given her 3 antibiotic shots, breathing treatments around the clock and she's in a O2 mist-tent (basically a high-powered cool-mist humidifier with extra oxygen) just to keep her O2 levels up. Southern Dr. Kids was the one doing rounds yesterday and I am totally confident in her ability, but today I had to fight with Clueless Dr. Kids (the one I saw at my 2nd office visit last week) to keep him from prescribing a drug that would speed her heart rate back up. I really wish I had gone to medica l school. I'll post more when I can, our little county hospital (which I will probably not ever go to again if I can avoid it) doesn't seem to have wireless, so I can only update when I get a chance to come home.
Please keep Miss B in your prayers. She is one horribly ill little lady.
