We went to the consult...as soon as the doc came in the room he was upset with how we had been handled. He told me that is was very unacceptable for us to be using a bad line that was clearly a problem, had been repaired twice already, and has been grown out of...Summer was only 8 pounds when this line was put in, and is now 19 lbs 4 ounces...big difference! He said we never should have been sent home and that this was just a recipe for disaster. He didn't want us waiting until next week to have the surgery done and got on the phone. He made some calls and got us admitted in a flash. Summer will spend the night with a temporary IV delivering fluids, and have surgery tomorrow.
Summer has been very hyper today. turning herself inside out with smiles, "jumping" with her legs while on my knee, babbling, all around slap happy! So glad she doesn't have the memories from this place...the nursed love it :) Me too!
I had ignored my instinct to grab my overnight bag on my way to the consult, so I called my parents and they gladly gathered my bags, my computer, and a blankie for Summer, and headed up to the hospital. Thanks mom and dad....the other day I brought my computer, but accidentally left the power cord...my computer lasted about 10 minutes, then croaked....gotta have my life line! This is great blogging time too :)
The heart monitors that once took up her entire chest, now rest on her chubby side...hardly noticeable :) This is a good shot of her war wound....I don't like to photograph it a lot, but at least it blends a little better now...the scar shows how wide her once 2 lb 11 ounce body was...
