Iz had a little cold last week but Sunday night she started vomiting. We were at the doctor Monday anyway so Bryce could get the staples removed from his head so I had Izzy checked out. Doc says it is just a virus, no big deal, wait it out. She got worse as the day went on so off to the ER we went.
She had a massive double ear infection and was dehydrated from the vomiting from the virus so she gets IV fluids and IV antibiotics. We are released around 2am. She needs a second shot of antibiotics on Tuesday but her pedi doesn't do them so back to the ER we go. She had continued vomiting and started diarrhea after our discharge the night before so they start an IV and get more fluids going and do the antibiotics via IV again. After fluids, she still has not perked up and is still vomiting. She gets an ultrasound to check for abdominal problems. She gets some Zofran. She still vomits. So we got admitted (11 months to the day from her surgery. Happy surgeversary!)
She finally stopped vomitting and has even been able to eat a little today but she still needs the IV fluids so no going home yet.... And today tests came back positive for rotavirus. Fun times!
It feels very strange to be on a regular ward instead of the cardiac floor. The cardiac floor is a little more comfortable (private room, private bathroom/shower, more comfortable sleeping spaces) so I kinda miss it
