Wordless Wednesday: Things KayTar won't drink
Yeah, we're back to that.
List of things that are being denied:
Ways of delivery that are being denied:
Syringe (she actually nearly vomited when I squirted it in my own mouth to demonstrate its safety)
Drizzling into mouth with straw
Hours she went without wetting a diaper yesterday: 7
She's not awake yet this morning, but I snuck in to feel her diaper. It is dry. Her last wet diaper was at 9pm. Its 9am. That's twelve hours.
I'm calling the ped. Can we all hope KayTar wakes up very, very thirsty? My one goal, ONE GOAL this year was to stay out of the hospital. And, it is day 9. NINE. And here we are teetering on this very familiar edge. Dude!
And oopsie, this was not exactly what you'd call wordless.
I'll keep you posted. Think thirsty thoughts.
ETA: She's had a few ounces since waking, but she hasn't wet at all...in 15 hours. We have a ped appointment to get her evaluated for dehydration. We'll see how it goes.
ETA again: The ped checked her out and sent us home to try and squeeze some more liquid into her. She said she has blisters in her throat (that are NOT strep) that are probably the cause for not drinking or eating. She also said if she can wet two diapers a day, we can stay out of the hospital. She's wet one today, a little after the 16 hour mark. So we need a second before bedtime, ideally. We shall see.
ETA times three: Houston, we have pee-pee. We also have a little girl who is still awake because as soon as she lays down she coughs until she gags...but we have PEE-PEE. And that's golden. Snort. Golden. Heh. I hope tomorrow is a better day.
