Rotavirus attacks!

Posted Jul 06 2010 7:56am

Hannah has been in the hospital since Saturday.   I just talked to Daddy, and she has been doing really well over the past two days!  She is tolerating her feeds well, she is not throwing up anymore, and she looks good.  Even better, she is almost done with the Ativan withdrawal!

As for me, well, her virus got me as well.  I spent the last 24+ hours pretty much asleep in bed, dealing with the same symptoms she had (just not as severe as she had!).   I think my body just has been so exhausted over the past couple of months, not getting any real sleep, that it just took hold of the opportunity to get sick and knock me out.    Even though I still have the “symptoms,” I am mostly just incredibly sore all over my body.

The worst part?   Kenny, one of our dogs, got out yesterday morning, and I got a phone call from a walker who found him about 1/2 mile away from our house!  He met me at the corner of the main street, and I was so dang appreciative.  As soon as he was out of site, I threw up all over the sidewalk, nice huh?  I’m so glad that it was really early in the morning because I didn’t see any cars!   Glad no neighbors saw me walking back either, would not want to meet them this way!

Daddy has been with Hannah for the past 36 hours, thank goodness.  I really, really hope she can come home today.  She has her first Cerezyme treatment tomorrow with a GI followup on Thursday and Neuro on Friday.  Not to mention, Pulmonology on Monday, and meeting our new pediatrician on the 16th!   She will definitely be “monitored.”
