Fine, I'll guess we'll stay a while
So, we almost made it a year without any unplanned hospital stays.....
We're at Children's this week. Samantha is fighting an infection but we haven't been able to find the source. She's been in a lot of pain and spent yesterday with a 104 degree fever. Last night took us from our 'penthouse' on the 8th floor down to the ICU so she could be closely observed as her stats started to drop.
We are keeping our fingers crossed that the worst is over. She's on two I.V. antibiotics that seem to be controlling the infection and her vitals look good. She's now sleeping and has her pink hue back :) Thankfully, she went through this without any breakthrough seizures.
We're hoping to be home by Friday. I'll be updating my blog with any news. If you have a moment, send her a smooch.
Thanks, as always, for the support :)
Heather, Bart and Samantha
