I spent the night here at the hospital with Kara, so her mom could have a break. My mom is here to help with the girls, and she's going to bring them over this afternoon for a visit.
I haven't decided if I'm going stay here tonight or go home and help get the girls to school tomorrow. It's quite a morning routine, much like running down an icy hill. And there are two buses at the bottom.
The hospital experience has been a mixed bag so far. There are a lot of really good people here to help. As with nearly everyone in the "real" world, they all have fairly significant fragrances.
Kara's line is still in - there is a glimmer of hope that it can stay in. They aren't using it for her antibiotic or her electrolytes, though. For that she has a heplock - a short line in her arm.
She began reacting pretty bad to her saline and dextrose IV, but Jenny and I comforted her with songs, and she soon relaxed enough to sleep. We both slept as well as is possible with nurses coming in every 2 hours to check.
I ate a banana and stale raisin bran for breakfast, because they had put away the real breakfast in the cafeteria. I thought I was plenty early, but alas, I had not sprung my clock forward.
Don't even get me started on DST again...
