This morning I dropped the kids of at my Moms and headed back to Salt Lake. By the time I arrived Tyler had the girls settled. It was a rough morning for Natalie. She ended up getting an IV placed, and had another nasal swab. Two attempts for the IV and two attempts for the nasal swab. She really is a trooper.
Natalie also had another x-ray today, they thought they heard some fluid in her lungs. We haven't heard back on the x-ray...no news can be good news. She seems well to me.
We sure hope we can do some really fun things with Natalie soon, she is beyond ready for a good time. We are so lucky to have the best view in all the hospital. She and I sit next to the window and watch the city, and right below our window is some major construction, we have been watching the work move along, big empty dump trucks pull up next to the giant backhoes until their buckets are full then they drive away, dump the dirt and come back for another load. Again another sign of boredom, I'm finding the construction so fascinating. I think they need more dump trucks, the backhoes have a long wait period. I've been analyzing their work and continue to check on the progress. I surely do come from a long line of engineers and contractors, too obvious. I've tried to get Tyler excited about it, but he thinks I'm weird.
We have seen a difference in Natalie today. She must be feeling better, because she has been happier and hasn't complained too much regarding pain. Her fevers have slightly improved. Her PICC line must have been contributing to a portion of her fevers.
The doctors would like Natalie to have another PICC placed on Monday. I wish she didn't need it anymore, she is so close to not needing it. Yet still a possibility that she can go without a line.
Feeling a little better
A yummy strawberry milkshake...bite #1
Bite # 3
She maybe had three bites total
The famous swirl...it's so cute. She is proud of her swirl.
Just playing around.
