It is official, my friends! We get to go home today!
Pain control is MUCH better since we made a little tweak yesterday. The nurse talked with the peds pharmacist and let him know that she wasn't getting adequate pain coverage (I was, slightly, concerned that she was still having enough pain to require narcotics...but we need to keep her comfy.) with what she was on...so they increased the dose of her Percocet to one full pill every 6 hrs vs. 1/2 pill every 4 hours.
Just what we needed...well, that and a little something else...
After talking with one of the nurses up here, I decided to ask for a pediatrician consult yesterday.
Best move ever. I have been very pleased with the care our surgeon has been giving us, but why not have two minds looking over her, right?
Well, the pediatrician that happened to be on was a female (I don't think this would've been caught with a male)...AND, she discovered that poor Belle had a little something going on that girls get when they're on antibiotics...
So, they treated her, and already she is having less pain (she was having some pain associated with peeing...)!! Praise the Lord for a second set of eyes! (Although, I still feel like we hurt our surgeon's feelings...doubt that I actually did, but I can't help but feel like he maybe thinks we don't trust him...)
One more dose of antibiotics this afternoon, and we'll get our walkin' papers!
It's gonna feel sooooooo good to be home!
Praise the Lord!!! I've been following Belle's hospital stay. Been praying for you all!ReplyDelete
Don't feel bad! Sometimes people who are close to the situation for awhile see things with a narrower focus! I'm sure your surgeon is just glad that she's being taken care of! I'm so excited that you guys are going home! Yay!! I'll keep my prayer hat on though, that she keeps making a good recovery and that there aren't any funky bumps in the road for her! Hugs! You guys are troopers!ReplyDelete
