Yeah ummm add throwing up to the list and when you have a child in ketosis – you get ketoacidosis and you spend the night at Carle. Larkin was getting worse and I brought her in. They know when I come through the door with her it’s an overnight.
Her bio-carbon levels were at 15 and they need to be at 20. We will stay here overnight on IV fluids and a check of her blood sugars every 4 hours. This time I brought her in early enough that they could find a vein and catch it early before everything goes haywire. Haywire is a technical term in all medical books.
She is still throwing up …. poor punkin. I got into bed with her and said “gosh you smell like throw up” and realized she had thrown up in her sleep. Good times. Neat. Wish you were here?
I am sure she will feel somewhat better tomorrow after the IV.
She is still sweet – might have to brush her teeth though 🙂
