Hospital stay #5

11 Jun

20130611-191013.jpgDoes this baby look sick to you? : )

We saw Rosalie’s GI dr this morning & that appointment went pretty well. Since she started taking the medicine they put her on last week her symptoms have improved. So we are going to stick with the vancomycin & omeprizole right now. If what happened last week happens again, they will scope her.

This afternoon, Rosalie saw a pediatric oncologist. She has severe neutropenia. She is starting IVIG therapy tonight. The link explains more about what it is. hopefully it will help her build up an immune system & kick the C diff.

As long as she does not get a temp of 100.5, which unfortunately the doctor said is highly likely, we will go home. He said if her temp reaches 100.5 they will have to keep her for several days because she is medically fragile. His words, not mine. It’s hard to look at her & think of her as medically fragile because she looks like a perfect sweet little baby, but I guess your immune system is not something that is necessarily visible.

So the doctor told us to think “cool thoughts” so she won’t get a fever & we can go home tomorrow.

Thanks everyone for the sweet messages, prayers, food, & thank you Rhonda & girls for taking care of MB! 🙂
