Sodium and Other Updates

We finally got into a room around midnight and by then I was even more exhausted than I usually am.

Of course, even though I had already gone over our contact info, as well as her current meds and symptoms twice in the ER – which they had updated in the computer- I had to list them all again, which only further annoyed me (I despise inefficiency πŸ˜‰). 

Tori remained asleep for most of the night, even during the eleven sticks they did to try to find a vein (still unsuccessful), which is likely because they stopped her feeds after 6:30pm. 

I was awakened constantly by doctors and nurses asking me questions, so it wasn’t the most restful night, but I’m used to that anyway πŸ˜‰

Her sodium levels early this morning were 114, which is dangerously low, I am told. Normal levels are 130-145. 

They continue to monitor them and to try solutions to increase the sodium levels. They said this would explain her fatigue and possibly the respiratory issues as well.

Also, her g-tube fell out this morning so that has been an adventure πŸ˜„

Overall, though, her stats have been great!

Still hoping to get to go home today but not sure that will happen. 

At least we have a much better view now than we did in February, AND Starbucks is now even closer to the elevators so I will stay caffeinated today πŸ˜„
