KayTar's Stages of Hospitalization


Scary


Calm


Scared...not to be confused with scary.


Silly


Mad. Or so she says, but the poor kid can't be mad even when she tries.


Hilarity.


Surprise.


Now I need one for: allergic reactions, vomiting, and being awake from 1:30-4:30am.

Stories to come. We're holding up. I intended to write a real-ish post while she napped, but she woke up after 20 minutes and is sitting next to me eating chips. I'm estimating she's going to need me right about---oh crap...now I need a photo for diarrhea. Gotta run! No pun intended...well, maybe a little. ;)

PDC (post diaper change): The LP (lumbar puncture) is tomorrow morning..thoughts and prayers would be most appreciated, as always. Have I told you lately you guys are amazing?

Still praying for you guys, Kyla. Allergic reaction? That doesn't sound good.

Thanks for the update. I'm surprised you managed so many pictures with the dial-up and all.

Hugs! Glad you're hanging in there okay.

Will be thinking of you.

(Also, the "trick" in the previous post? Freaked me right out! I had to look at it three times before I could calm down!)

The pictures could not be more adorable! The vomiting, diarrhea and allergic reaction don't sound quite so adorable. Sure hope you have a better night tonight!

I'll be praying for you!

Julie said...

Keeping up with you guys and sending strength through the computer (if that is at all possible). Hope tomorrow goes well.

epi said...

sending warm thoughts your way, and hope the entertainment stash is holding up!

(and oh, the joys: i definitely looked at that, attempted to try it, and finally had to concede to my lack of flexibility... go kaytar!)

nomotherearth said...

We're with you all the way. Hang in there!

flutter said...

Oh how I love that little girl. And you, always you.

(FYI for those who asked? The weather? Hot and sunny.

If you surf, it's up, which reminds us here that more is happening out there.)

That KayTar is having one big party in the Fun Room there.

She may have M and W straight but I think she has "hospital" and "spa" confused. ;)

You know you have loads of P&PTs from us...and within that, as hard as it is to say, a wish for an episode so you can get information and hopefully answers.

Praying for you and Kaytar this morning. She's such a sweet, darling girl - I hope her lumbar puncture goes well this morning and is already over and done with.

I bet she's s total trouper about it. The amazing thng about kinds in the hospital is that it's worse for the parents. I remember not really minding hospital stays for operations, even though they involved restraint and having my eyes glued shut for days. The nurses were nice, the food was good, there was TV (unlike home), thre were other kids to hear and talk to. Not to downplay what you are in the midst of at all, Kyla. But it might help to know that, and also that when I volunteered in a children's hospital for years, the kids were pretty fine with being there. It's their normal. So it's good to see her with a whole range of stuff going on on that lovely face, even if the rest is no fun. I bet she takes it all like a champ and leaves you amazed.

Christine said...

Aww, what sweet pics.

All sweet thoughts headed your way. That Kaytar is a real trooper.

Sarah said...

Prayers for you guys going out!

Sending you tons of happy, positive thoughts, especially for the LP which I know will be difficult for both of you.

I'm really glad you provided an update... and it looks like KayTar is holding up really well, all things considered.
