On Monday we headed down town for a GJ change, labs and sedated ABR.
Keeping her busy on the long drive down.
A PICC placement was having complications(so sorry for whoever that was), so we got put into a different IR room. Unfortunately, it was a sterile room, so I had to dress up in the bunny suit in order to accompany Bella into the room. I never get to stay for the procedure, but I do get to make sure she is situated correctly and all of her machines are plugged in, suction available, etc. Last time they changed her GJ she was so mad and upset she was foaming at the mouth and her circuit was full of junk. But this time she was happy at the end. Who knows? Maybe it was my fabulous attire!
Sweet girl – her hearing is “essentially normal!” Amazing! That is such an improvement. She had mild hearing loss, then sensitivity loss, and now this. Incredible – tubes are wonderful! She will continue to be regularly monitored – the audiologist wants every six months. We’ll see about that. But being on gent and lasix, she is at risk for drug induced hearing loss. So we monitor. But she told me that the loss would start in the high frequency first – so s, ph, th. That is what I’ll watch for.
And finally headed home.
She is so funny. She has learned to laugh around the vent, but it beeps. She gets so silly and crazy at times. I just love her!
She is headed back to sick – yellow/green plug this morning and fever. We’ll see. Hopefully it’s short lived.
