Update # 5 for March 26

Olivia had a rough couple of hours this afternoon. She decided on her own that she wanted the foli cath (urine) out so that was removed around 6pm. We had a nurse from 3:30 – 7PM who needs a little interpersonal skill retraining. First nurse in 4 years like that but the timing was rough. We’ll leave it at that but my mom walked out to see my dad after visiting Olivia and said to him “I am SO glad Tom is on tonight because I do NOT LIKE that woman!”

Olivia got to sit up in my arms this afternoon. Sheer heaven for me, but she was uncomfy I think. Add a dose of potassium via IV and she was REALLY having a tough time. The potassium burns when it goes in and she was FLIPPING out. It broke my heart to see her like that.

She napped for a good long while this evening after the excitement of the potassium and is just waking up and looking pretty good. With Tom on the job we know she’ll have a great evening and all is well.

You’ll hear from me in the morning… :) Thanks to all for your comments and for reading. They mean the world to all of us.
