Welcome to 5 west, not the most comforting words a CF parent can hear, but definitley reassuring. 5 West is the hospital floor at Egleston Childrens Hospital where CF kids hang out when they arent feeling so well. We made our debut on the floor last night.
Yesterday was a normal day of last minute preparation for Brittany to go back to work. We were at the ped office to pick up forms for daycare and all seemed well. After se left, Sutton began one of her coughing fits and turned blue. Not a comforting sight for parents. That afternoon we were back at the ped office where she had another episode and the pediatrician sent us on the the ER to be checked out. Not too long after, we were admitted and still here today. Everything is going well. A few antibiotics and a few more tests to see what is going on and maybe we can be home in time for dinner?! For now, we feel like we are in the right place and in good care. Sutton is such a good sport. After numerous sticks for IV and lots of other pokes, she still has that angelic smile on her face.
Look for the homecoming message soon.
