We all know, how I frequent the ER. Well...yesterday, was BY FAR the worst. I left my house around 12:30, and pulled into my driveway, at 10:50!!!!! IT WAS INSANE!!!!!!!! People just kept coming and coming and coming. We were in the waiting room, for almost 3 hours. Once we finally got in a room, we waited another hour, for the nurse to come in. But we had GREAT nurses, and an AWESOME doctor, even though I went through a "visiting resident" first. My little Jackie, is SO complicated...the Dr came in, and said, "I heard all about this kiddo, I had to come see him myself."
The first thing she asked me..." Are you worried about his shunt?" How great is that? And then, "What do YOU want us to do for him?" I loved her. She ordered chest X-rays, IV, Labs, and IV fluids. She as so good with Jack too.
Jack was so cute, and sick. He was such a trooper. Luckily, the IV went in first try. I told them of his past IV's and how putting it in his foot seemed to work best. And what do you know...they said...COOL!
We just decided, since his fever was coming down, his electrolights were good, and his lungs were clear, there really was nothing more they could do for him IN the hospital. So we came home. The on call Dr from our Peds office came in, and we decided to leave his IV in, and if he needed it, we could go in the office today, and get more fluids, or they could take it out. I felt good about that. Although...that little bugger woke up this morning, and wanted it out, and wasn't giving up till it was. So I took it out. Like I haven't seen enough IV's come out, to know how to do it. *rolling eyes* Parker thinks it the coolest thing ever, and plans on taking it to school for show and tell! haha
I slept in this morning...till like noon!! YAY!! In that time, his fever went back up, he laid down for a nap, and he's been asleep since, almost 3 hours. He was so sweet, I had to take a picture with my phone.
So anyway, That's today. Hopefully, it's all up hill from here!
