ok love. short and sweet and right to the point. we went to your check-up with dr rodgers today. we told him what's been going on lately, the most important things being that you slept all day yesterday and your food wouldn't go through last night-it just kept coming out of your mucous fistula. that you hadn't gotten food since 2am. that you don't seem yourself, etc. etc. they drew some labs and immediately admitted you when they saw how crazy out of whack your electrolytes were. before dr rodgers came in to talk to us about it the nurse poked her head in and said (in a subtle, but frantic, voice) "he's gonna admit her-you just keep watching her, ok?". and i kept wondering what exactly i was supposed to be watching for. so i finally asked somebody and they said that your sodium was so low that it could cause seizures. your sodium was 105 and he said he really didn't believe that because it was so unusually low. that it must've been a diluted sample and they'd repeat the labs when you got to the picu. well it wasn't diluted sweet baby. and your sodium that low means you should've been seizing or unconscious, but you were neither. lots of thanks for that. what a strong fighter you are lovey. everyone kept saying so today when they realized your sodium really was that low and you were actually awake and aware at times. so we settled into the picu and got you some fluids and electrolyte replacements and soon your sodium was coming back up and the other lytes were evening out too. you were still so grumpy it was almost funny. not actually funny, but almost, just because as soon as you'd wake up you'd look around and start making these groany noises. sweet sweet baby. it's pretty pitiful just thinking about it actually because it's so unlike how you usually are, before this most recent saga began...
ok so here you are. back at uva in the picu with your friends coming to visit throughout the day. we love them, don't we??? i'd be ok with not seeing them quite so much though;) you'll be there for about a week. we can do it=)
love you babe-
ps-i actually asked dr rodgers, with a big smile on my face while laughing at myself, if you kind of licking a dandelion could've hurt you. he started laughing at me too=)
