My best laid plans to get Murray home today have turned to crap. Literally. Ashlea has gastro - I am typing this update from the ED - we are getting admitted shortly.
This morning I had to go up to Murray's hospital and convince the nurses that I should NOT bring him home. I think the bed had been allocated to someone else but I told them I would most likely have to take Ashlea to the ED this afternoon and they decided it would be best for Murray to stay in hospital for a couple more days. There is no way I could supervise him AND stay with Ashlea at the same time. Also he only has one kidney now too - gastro is a BIG deal for kidney patients and the last thing he needs.
So Ashlea is currently in resus but we are getting admitted to the ward shortly. Thankfully there was a very sensible nurse running triage who saw us in the queue and brought us straight to the desk and from there we were brought straight in. It never surprises me how many 'not that sick kids' are in the triage queue - thankfully we bypassed them all.
We are hopefully going up to Variety ward soon - where everyone is either contagious or at risk of contagion so it is all single rooms. I can't handle shared rooms anymore!
I'm not sure how long we'll be here. Ashlea is pretty miserable. Please pray for her recovery - and also for the rest of the family not to catch it...
