Quick Update

I ended up taking Ashlea over to the ED for bloods, as the most likely reason for her to be unwell is an electrolyte imbalance.

5 hours and 1 blood test later we are home as her bloods were surprisingly good.  She is still quite weak when trying to crawl or sit up, so I will speak to the renal team tomorrow and see what they say.  She has no other signs of illness so I doubt if it is related to the swine flu shot.  I think it is more related to her kidney disease - especially as we made changes to her medications recently.

Anyway, not a great way to spend the public holiday, but there are still a few hours of daylight left, and the local council is putting on a big Australia Day 'thing' just up the road from our house so I am about to take Emma and Audrey up there.

Happy Australia Day!!!

PS Do you know what I realised on my way home from our 5 hour trip to Emergency???  Ashlea's kidney doc has an iphone.  I have her email address - so I could have gotten in touch with a kidney specialist today!  Hopefully I will think of that first next time.
