She lost her IV last night, so they took her to the procedure room to place a new IV.Â I really needed sleep (I fell alseep sitting up three times yesterday), so I went to bed.Â When I woke up early this morning, I found out she had spiked a fever during the night.Â So this morning was lots of fuss over her - 3 failed blood draws, a catheter for a urine sample, and a stool sample (she now has diarhea), and then finally a few minutes ago, they were abe to get a blood draw from her scalp.
Her heart rate was hitting over 200, but the tylenol really helped bring it down.Â They have an ice pack (not really cold, just cool as it's wrapped in cloth), that we are placing on parts of her and rotating every few minutes.
I finally had to leave to get breakfast as I was beginning to shake from lack of sleep (haven't gotten more than 5 hours a night since we got down here).
Please pray that they will be able to find what's wrong with her, and that it can be treated quickly.
Also, Jessica and I are wearing thin, so Daryl and the rest of the kids are already on their way down to relieve us.Â I think Jessica will come and sit with Esther so I can take a shower and get a nap.Â Ideally, we'll get some volunteers to watch Esther to Jessica won't have to do that either.
I'm just numb.
