Ava is back in the hospital. She’s febrile and tachycardic. We’re waiting for an ekg to see if we can find a reason for her high heart rate, which is high even when her fever is down. She’s on feeds and maintenance fluids (D10 H.N. saline). Blood sugar is good, for once. Hopefully we can get her fever to stay down, her tachycardia figured out and she can go home within the next day or two. We are really trying to keep her outpatient as much as possible.
My name is Hope. I have amazing children that I'm lucky enough to spend my days with. I'm also a molecular biology major, which I really love. I'm a Neuroblastoma Stage IV survivor still dealing with the effects of that not only with myself, but my children as well. My youngest daughter is medically fragile. She has a metabolic disorder, airway problems, and many more issues. My blog has turned into a way to chronicle these problems, but I do pray for a day that she has no medical problems to write about! Welcome to my life!
