Today started out well. It is Suzy's 2nd birthday and I was in a good mood.............oh,...how quickly things can go south around here!
By 12:00 Suzy had a fever of 101 degrees. My mom and I thought maybe her incision site was infected. So, off to the pediatrician we went. Nope, turns out she has an ear infection.
We filled her perscription, canceled her birthday party, and attempted to get the antibiotic in her. She couldn't tolerate the medicine. My wonderful brother called her in a different antibiotic (thank you Brian.)
By dinner she was vomiting bucket loads of brown syrup (turns out it is dried blood). We phoned the surgeon on call, and he said it is normal to have dried blood in the stomach after stomach surgery. Who knew?
By 8:30 we finally had her cleaned up and the meds stayed down, and she is tucked safetly into bed.
I just want to ask God - Why can't this poor baby have one really great day? and why couldn't it have been on her birthday? She deserves a nice day.
