Now that her gut has had a rest it is much less swollen and she is quite chirpy. We have just started running some pedialyte at 20ml/hour to see how she tolerates it. So far so good - if she can tolerate it we will increase her feeds, get the IV out and get out of here (not today but maybe tomorrow).
Her kidney function has remained good throughout - probably because we started on fluids straight away. Today's creatinine was 33 - can't complain about that!
Ashlea and I are pretty bored in here. Don't tell Aunty Carolin but while she is running my kids to birthday parties, ironing school uniforms, making lunches and generally preparing for the week ahead, I am sitting here reading a trashy magazine while drinking tea and eating chocolate!! Shhhhh.
Hopefully we'll be able to come home tomorrow. I can tell Ashlea has had enough as whenever anyone medical comes near her she says "GO AWAY ABOUT ME" in a bossy little voice!
Here she is - yesterday in ED:
Today asleep under the ipad:
Not happy when I removed the ipad:
(Sorry for the blurry phone pics but I was giggling at the ipad marks on her face...).
