HOSPITAL UPDATE#1

Kaidence had a good night. In fact, I think it was the best night that we have both had since last Thursday. That says a lot for hospital sleep. This morning she still is not producing much urine for the amount of fluids that she has been given, however that seems to be improving slowly. Her numbers for kidney function look much better today and will hopefully continue that way. That is a BIG relief for us. Also, her white count is down from 22 to 18 this morning, so the antibiotics are doing there job and hopefully it will be back to normal soon.

Kaidence held down some feeds last night and this morning wanted some yogurt. Her oral aversions have come back, but always do when she has been sick. It is almost as though she has to learn to trust herself swallowing again. She wants to eat the food, but is too afraid to swallow it. She looks so much better today. She is sitting up and has taken over the rocking chair and food tray in the room. She insist that the food tray stays in front of her, like a sense of Independence being able to feed herself when wanted.

Our plan for today includes playing a little hospital BINGO, getting a chest x-ray and waiting for our blood culture results. Thanks for all of your prayers. If things continue well, we may make it home just in time for dinner tomorrow. I will post a little later today.

Oh my goodness. I am staying at my in law's home over here on spring creek drive and have driven past your house several times over the last several days, wondering how you are doing. I can't believe she is sick again! I had no idea H1N1 could do that. Poor baby.

I will be praying for you and your family!
