Hospital, was an absolute nightmare,everything went wrong and I’m livid.
Zachariah had to fast from 2am as he needed 6 hours before sedation and we were arriving at 8.30 (unfortunately his usual feed is around 5am and 8am so at 2am he took around 45ml not much). Anyway when we get there they push us from person to person because for some reason the letter said the wrong place, when we finally ended up in one place they took a good hour to find the notes.(turns out we only have to be in for 8.30 because that’s when dr start they’re rounds and some patients don’t turn up !) The mri was scheduled for 11.30 so he was being sedated at 10.30 ( which meant I could have given him another feed before leaving!) At 10 they said there’d been an emergency case so we’d be delayed by about an hour. Fair enough, however after 2nd emergency, personally I felt starving a baby for near on 12 hours was an emergency, socail serv. would’ve had me for that!) Eventually after my poor baby had been fasting for 11 hours they gave him chlorophyll at 12! to sleep. He did, and so at 1 we went down for mri (having slept for a good hour, we were kept hanging around and he’d woken up) the mri people took one look at him and said ‘well we can’t do it today now, look at him!’ I was furious as far as I am concerned it was all down to their incompetence and had I known we were going to be delayed that much I could have actually given him a feed at the hospital. Anyway they said because he now needed feeding and had to have empty stomach for meds he couldn’t have anything more, esp as so little they were scared of double dosing him. So he has to go back and they are going to give him a general anaesthetic next time as he woke up ( but he was bloody sleeping they just took too long) Anyway we left, fuming, and he only went and slept for another 1hr30, I even shook the pram to see if he’d wake. So basically I took him to hospital to starve him and give him a fake sleep. And now am waiting to go through it all again but worse because general aen. I will not be patient with them next time though if they start playing us around. i can;t believe i have to go through the stress all over again, i was tense enough 1st time around grr!
