2 am update

So, it's 2am. I had finally fallen asleep when they came in to do her vitals. I now am having a difficult time falling back asleep on the board they call a couch. Callie, fortunately is sleeping well in her "crib". They are giving her another round of antibiotics in an hour. I am debating if I am just staying up since they are going to wake me anyway. Her blood work is coming back on the high end of normal (Her white blood cell count was on the higher end of OK). They are sending out more blood work to determine what the infection might actually be, but we won't get the results for another week. So, right now she is on a cocktail of antibiotics to fight the infection.

Becky W. stopped by earlier and brought me a blanket and pillow. I'm tired, but just not tired enough to fall asleep on the couch...especially knowing it will only last an hour. I hate that it takes me almost that long to fall asleep. Ugh. I'm being whiny. 2 am is not a good color on me. I am very thankful that Callie seems to be doing pretty well all things considered. She is still smiling and content most of the time, despite the tubes coming out of her hand. She is a trooper. I will give her that.

Well, I should either close my eyes again, or get some food because I'm feeling a bit hungry. Peace.

Ugh, hospitals are not good sleeping places for anyone. When Harmony was in for the croup (two nights) I ended up sleeping the crib with her (O2 tent). Every time we fell asleep, it seemed they came to do a test or give her a shot...hope you got some rest!
