Well here we are, blogging from Primary Children's Hospital. Lily was admitted yesterday with severe dehydration and dangerous sodium levels. She has had a bad bout of the flu. Friday her pediatrician gave her an IV bag and some meds to stop the vomiting. He left the IV in but by Saturday she was in such bad shape that she was sent straight here. She is doing much better than the last two days. Her sodium is normal and she is so full of fluid her eyes are a little puffy. We get to stay here until monster Diarrhea leaves for good. I am just glad to see her eat a little this morning and get a little grumpy with the nurses. I can think of little worse than watching your baby lay, unresponsive, sick and dry. Thank heaven for modern medicine. I am so grateful to live in this country with this wonderful hospital.
