Yesterday was a rough day for many different reasons beyond ending up in the ER....
Ian was transferred poorly yesterday and as a result his right leg is broken. Ian is in a immobilizer and will be followed by outpatient. For many reasons, Ian's bones are brittle and as we were told today he needs to be treated like "china".
Now for the ER/PICU....after dinner last night, Ian was back on the sofa and he began to desat, I had Brian come into the room and he immediately put Ian on oxygen. This did little to help him recover, so we went across the street to get our wonderful RT neighbor...thank you Mark....he was great. Took over, began bagging Ian while assessing everything else that was going on. For many reasons, 911 was called. Once they got to the house, Mark went to get our other neighbor, Danielle to cover Becca (who had gone upstairs after seeing more then I would have liked her too, however, eventually it was going to happen and she was going to see things)...thank you Danielle. EMTs stabilized him and it was off to Hopkins. In the ER, Ian desated a few more times, however, it recovered much better then at home....Ian remained stable last night and today. He is back down to 21% oxygen...as long as he has a good night they are talking about discharge tomorrow.
Again, a very special thank you to my wonderful neighbors, Mark and Mary, Tim and Danielle, Stephanie and Ellen....we could not have gotten thru last night with out you.
Here is to my superhero having a good night and coming back home tomorrow...XO and sleep tight.
