PICU update

Ok labs are back. Human metapneumovirus. Not too bad for us, but explains why she’s in such bad shape. They’ve warned us that this could take some time to get over and the effects can linger. They’ve stopped the antibiotics as its a virus and just has to run its course. Her fever, heart rate and oxygen have improved but she is still needing her bipap 24/7 and IV fluids. We are working on her feeds as she is still vomiting which is extremely dangerous as she has such limited head control and she risks aspiration. We will be staying in isolation at sick kids for a few more days. Thank you so much for the kind words and for keeping our girl in your thoughts. A special thank you to the unsung heroes who are helping us keep it all together on the home front.
