…she isn’t. We have heard a lot of that this past week. Transplant kids are “special” and that VIP treatment comes with an abundance of caution from everyone. While other babies would get to recover at home, Addison gets the 5 star red carpet at the hospital.
This means our “get out of jail free” card doesn’t come into effect until tomorrow morning at the earliest so we are bunking down here for at least one more night. Though really, last night barely counts as a night here since no one got to sleep until 4am. An early morning wakeup call with rounds at 7am has made for one very tired baby today. ( And very tired parents.)
Addison seems to be taking in more fluids today and we have had pee, yay! Only two bouts of diarrhea in the past 24 hours…another good sign. Really, we are in the hospital for close monitoring. She isn’t getting any meds or IVs. Just lots of good old fashioned breast milk. That is why Mommy gets to stay with Princess again. Here is to a good night and discharge in the morning! Bottoms up!
