Not so Fast

No floor yet. Mia decided to spike a temp hours before they were going to give us the boot... so we are still in ICU. They are having problems with her line, and will probably just take it out. It won't draw back, and it may be causing the fever. The fellow stitched it into her skin- she just can't keep that line in. I like the Hickman because they can draw her blood as often as they want. If they take it out, it will be needle city for us. They decided to put the milrinone back on for a day so now she has an IV in her scalp. This is her third unicorn crown.

Everything else besides the fever is going great! The nurses love her to death- I will miss them when we're gone. The new ETA for the floor is Monday. It would be so nice to flash forward to the day we go home... yes please!

Doctors do NOT like it when kids with Hickmans have fevers. Hadley spent nearly an entire summer in the hospital because of fevers and blood infections. I'll be praying her cultures come back clear.

Hang in there.

I found your blog through someones give away or something.. and I love to come here and see how wonderful you little darling is doing... My niece also went through the same thing.. she is four now, and is so incredible...she does everything a normal four year old girl does!! I just have one question that is totally meaningless but do you pronunce Mia like Me-a or My-a?? sorry i just wanted to know..

A change of Heart said...

We pronounce her name Me-a. It is funny but I never even thought there would be any confusion. She has been called "Mya" quite a bit. Thanks for asking :-)
