Hospital Update

Hi all,

Sorry no cards from me yet, we are still in hospital and havent had any time for crafting at all. Thought I would give you an update on madam.

Abbie is doing better each day and the meds seem to be doing the trick although the levels are still not right and they are still increasing the dosage each time till they hit the right mark. He temp and blood pressure have been up and down and she is struggling to eat after loosing her appetite completely. They have started her on some milkshake supplements to try and help her gain weight a bit but in all fairness they are not that nice and is proving a bit of struggle to get her to drink them. It took them 3 hours to get her long line in as she was having none of it, but eventually we got there and it seems to be working fine at the moment. I am being taught to draw up and administer the meds through the line myself and hopefully if she picks up we can come home at the end of the week and I can finish the treatment at home.  She is having to have lots of chest physio to keep her chest clear which is something she is not to happy about, it literally took 4 of us to do it the other day (1 to do it and 3 to hold her down lol!!!!).

Anyway hope to be back soon.
