Of course we couldn't quite sail through this round as easily as last round. This morning, Ella's blood pressure was running low a few times in a row. She hasn't had any fevers but apparently the low blood pressure CAN be a sign of an infection in her blood. So they are being proactive and have given her some extra fluids and started some antibiotics. Her blood pressure has normalized since getting the fluid but now we wait a 24 to 48 hours to make sure that nothing grows in the blood cultures that they took this morning. We have been through the same thing in rounds 1 and 2 due to fevers and nothing materialized so I am praying that this will be the same. The good news is that she is feeling 100% fine and acting her usual self. The bummer is that we are now hooked up to an IV again which as you can imagine, sucks with a toddler!! This video was taken in her new favorite place to be (besides the hospital hallways), the sink in our room. I think she just likes looking at her self in the mirror. Hope you enjoy the video!
