Grandma and Avery
So I posted how Avery hadn't been feeling well. I was planning on going to my sisters for a couple days from Tuesday to Thursday. Monday evening Loma Linda Children's Hospital calls me and asked me to bring Avery back to the E.R. ASAP. I asked why, they said because she has high amount of yeast in her bladder. I was a little confused since this has happened before and the doctors usually just give an antibiotic. It made me think there might be something else going on and they weren't telling me. So I got Avery all ready and off we went, Danielle my sister in-law decided to join me. I'm so glad she did, since this was the start of a very frustrating evening. It was about 8pm when we got to the E.R. We checked in and since they new we were coming, they brought us right back and did Avery's vitals. Then they sent us back out to the lobby to wait. 2 and 1/2 hours later we finally went to a room. I was still trying to figure out what the emergency was for us to be here. No one would give us a straight answer. Every Dr. that came in was asking the same questions, Why is Avery here? Is she on oxygen? Does she have a feeding tube? Etc. It was decided by the Dr.'s that Avery was going to be admitted for her O2 sats dropping at night. Okay wait a minute, she is being admitted for something I told them after I got here, then what was the reason they called us to come down ASAP for. It's now 2am and I am pissed. I am not leaving my child here. The next Dr. that came in was informed of my decision. Of course they had to read me the right act about how my child might turn blue in the middle of the night and I could have to call 911. I was willing to take the risk. This hospital was a joke. They did give me an antibiotic for the yeast and Avery has been great ever since. I'm glad I listened to my gut instinct.
I finally made it to my sister's the next day. How wonderful it was. She lives in San Juan Capistrano, a few miles from the beach. It was the vacation that should had started a week ago. I was finally able to enjoy myself. We spent a few hours playing in the sand, water and beach volleyball. Avery loved the water. Actually she did something she had never done before. I would put her feet in the water and let the waves hit them, she would get so excited, straighten her legs and stand. Of course, I was holding her under her arms but she was bearing the weight. So exciting to see her accomplishments. I am back up at my parents until tomorrow. I'm going to visit one my good friends. My trip is closing in. I am eager to get back home and see all my kids and husband too.
