Wishful thinking.

I left Olivia around 11:00 today to try to get some sleep. I wish I were still young and able to handle this lack of sleep, but such is life. Anyway, she is doing fine. Still on higher amounts of oxygen. The downfall to this, is that they wanted her on a mask. You tell me how they are going to keep a mask on a fussy, active 2 year old? So, we are standing there holding a big blue tube up to her face at all times. She really needs to get switched back over to her regular nasal cannula. Also, they reduced her dose of Lovenox and will re-test the accuracy of the dose tonight at 10:00 or so. Which means...another night in the hospital for us! The attending physician today recommends that she stay through until surgery time. Makes sense, I suppose. But, I had not really planned for that. What's new?

Darn. Let's hope you can at least be sprung from the clink as soon as the tests are done on Wed. Also wishful thinking...

Let me know what you need with the other kids. I can easily rearrange my carpool to include your kiddos. Just say the word.
