So…two weeks into JK and Stella got Rhinovirus. We tried to battle it out at home but were having trouble keeping her stable so we had to take her into Sick Kids. She was a total trooper. Lots of pokes, x-rays, bi-pap, oxygen and the dreaded deep nasal suctioning. The team at Sick Kids is fantastic and there is nowhere else I’d rather be when she is so sick.
PICU is hell on us though as they don’t have parent beds in the room and sleeping in a chair is brutal. A drop in the bucket compared to what our girl goes through, but it’s hard to be at your best for her when you’re so tired and sore.
We are so grateful for the team of friends and family that pick up the slack during these crazy times at home and help us out with Oliver and George.
