Thank you to everyone for your kind words and support. It means the world to me to know that there are those out there who care about this little girl.
Larkin is feeling much better. She spent the night in the hospital with an IV going. She has a cold and a barking cough but she stopped throwing up and is sleeping well. Even though we were there for 24 hours – it still felt like a week. This time I made the right decision to take her in right away and 24 hours vs our normal 10 day stay – made it all worthwhile. I think next time we will go to the ED and per a fix I have put in place, maybe we can just get the fluids and go home in 4-6 hours. If I stay calm and persistent – then it all works out. I can usually manage both of those things when it comes to her.
Today I called our pediatrician and asked him to write a note in L’s chart that says “Mom isn’t making this stuff up”. He agreed with me and the fix is in place for the next time. And we all know there will be a “next time”. I think he might have written something a little more medical sounding but at least the bottom line is there. PAY ATTENTION TO MOM!
Tomorrow is our transition meeting with Unit 4 for Larkin to begin school on her birthday. I have my list. I have my thoughts. I have my goal. Hopefully it will all go well and I’ll post tomorrow on how it goes.
