Better Today

Everyone is feeling better today. Hana’s glucose levels are back up but her creatinine and BUN are still high. Last night IV fluids helped a lot. Today they ran some Pedialyte through her feeding tube, which she tolerated just fine. Then they mixed 50/50 Pedialyte/Breastmilk which she also seems to be tolerating. They are holding all her heart medications.
Hana is cranky because I think she is still not feeling well, her stomach is gurgling. She also is bored but is feeling well enough to try to climb out of her bed!
Tonight they are going to try her on straight breastmilk then her usual breastmilk/formula mix she’s been getting.
I definitely turned a corner and although I can only tolerate small amounts of food I’m back to normal. Paul is the same as me. My mom, on the other hand, is now sick!
I’ve heard different predictions as to how much longer we will be here – anywhere from tomorrow to Saturday. Either way, at least we don’t have to share a room with three other patients like last time we were on 3 West.
