So, when you've spent WEEKS in Children's, you learn the ins and outs. You learn that it really is ok to question the docs, disagree with protocol and push back.
I've been pushing back.
Nothing extreme....I've insisted we get Infectious Disease involved. I make lists and ask for follow up...we're running the business of getting Samantha well. Yesterday however, one of the I.D. residents mentioned to the nurse that she was afraid to talk to me about a delayed meeting for fear she would get yelled at.Yelled at?!! I'm not a yeller...a little short perhaps....it's all about the business of Samantha :)
Speaking of, we are now on the 8th floor; out of the ICU. YAY! They are thinking Samantha had a super-infection behind her ear. She also tested positive for MRSA which is a nasty staph infection. All is being treated with a super-dose of anti-biotics. We will be here at least through Monday.
Samantha is resting well. She's pretty worn out from days of high fever and intense pain. We both slept well last night!
Thank you again for all the well-wishes, thoughts and prayers. We love you guys :)
