home real quick

It's been a long 24 hrs. Last night when I got back to the hospital Ari was trying to sleep. She started screaming every 3 minutes and this went on for 2 hours. Finally the nurse figured out that her IV had infiltrated, and was pumping the fluid into her tissue. this is apparently fairly painful and her little hand and wrist were horribly swelled. They took out the IV and she was asleep in 2 seconds. They decided to see if she would drink and didn't put in a new one. She played a little bit on the floor and tried to eat a bit but wouldn't really drink. Doc came in and was concerned about how her breathing and chest were sounding. He decided to do some breathing treatments and ordered a chest xray. He also wanted the IV back in. The chest xray came back showing inflammation but not pneumonia. Her blood works shows that she is still dehydrated. They also started her on iron supplements. When I left she was finally asleep and resting. so we have no idea what is going on with her little body, or when she'll be coming home.
I will go back up to the hospital around 9pm and brian will head home.
more updates when i can....
