Our trach class is completed. More and more items are getting checked off from our Discharge To-do List. I just wish that Bella would sign off on the plan. :)
Tuesday the vendor is coming to help us order a Kid Kart. It is a stroller and a wheelchair combined. There is a place for the ventilator and the oxygen tank. Plus it will have the trunk and head support she’ll need.
She’s had a pretty good day. No major desats or bradies. Not too tachy. I was feeling pretty good until the doc says that she is a critically ill child who would be in ICU if she was anywhere but here. (He was talking to a PA, not me.) Oh well.
Her tummy is a little distended. We checked her residuals (what’s left in her belly) and it was way too much and looked like straight milk. So her feedings were stopped for a while. We re-checked and she had resumed digesting – good. So her feeds have resumed and they will watch it closely. Hopefully nothing.
Here’s hoping for a nice, quiet weekend!
