(I just can't think of a title today)

1:40 p.m.
So...Shelby slept great once she fell asleep at Midnight! Her wonderful nurse Heather managed to sneak in this morning and draw her labs off her IV without waking her - go Heather! I wonder what her plan was if Shelby caught her...Anyway, it was very nice that her little bruised arms didn't have to get another needle stuck in them today. Labs are o.k.; of course her ANC took a nosedive, but, hey, we're used to that now. We are just waiting on the GI on-call (not our beloved Dr. Deutsch) to decide what the game plan is. She is less yellow today, eating some and drinking a bit, but the diarrhea just keeps on comin' and comin'.....Scott is with her right now and I'm home with Baby A so she can nap. Grammie & Papa are awesome and she loves them so much, but she needed some Mommy & Daddy time. I don't know who was more excited to see each other this morning, Avery or me?!?! I'm going to try to do laundry and general keep-your-house-from-looking-like-a-bomb-went-off stuff. I'll let you know when we know what's going on. Please pray that she gets over this quickly!
8:32 p.m.
Home. Discharged. Broke out of jail again. On a different antibiotic now that is supposed to be more sensitive to Shigella. But, if she has a temp again or is acting like she was yesterday, back to the ER we go. Tonight, as she was getting undressed for her bath, I noticed that her tummy is HUGE. I measured it in a couple of spots. We'll see what it measures tomorrow. Please, prayers for no re-admits. Thank you.
