Thanks to the wonderful bug that made it's way through the Christiansen clan....we are now worried about dehydration. Dr's are slightly nervous that she hasn't had a lot of urine output in the last 24 hrs. This of course is due to the fact that she spent a majority of that puking on her parents. Yes, the score is now Daddy 2 Mommy 1 -- in this case me being the winner. I think we did 3 loads of laundry last night purely for pjs....I did not pack enough to make it past 4 pukes! Good news is she doesn't seem to mind the puking. We finally called the dr last night after the 3rd time and she indicated that when someone has a bug like this the body is not so receptive to lactose products. Hmmm.....that would explain her puking up the PediaSure and Formula for the last 3 days!! She is now drinking PediaLyte and water only. Dumb us.
We had an ultrasound done today on her kidney's just to make sure everything is working right. They also hooked her up for fluids for 30 mins and will hook her up again tonight when we go back in for days 8-12 of chemo. All in all she looks great and is acting fine and so far has not puked today.
On the up side....it is freezing rain today. Target House is 4 miles from the hospital and all staff were let go early of course -- can anyone say dejavu? (this was the case in the KC hospital as well -- weather or holidays) And one last topper for the day is Avery is teething. Are you kidding me?! The kid has 2 teeth -- got them at 6 months, and right now is when the others decide to join us? Thank the Lord this girl is a tough one!
