Thanks for sticking with my long winded story about Eldest spending four days in the PICU and Children’s hospital. Ironically he is the only one that has been hospitalized now TWICE!
So we are waiting around on day three of our hospital stay to get transferred out of the PICU and onto the 3rd floor regular wing. Eldest did not have quite the appetite that they wanted him to have so we were waiting and biding our time until he was well enough to be transferred. His blood glucose numbers were not quite regulating the way they had wanted. We had been giving him some insulin at this point and checked his fingers a few times as well.
His first official meal was ordered BEFORE I arrived at the hospital. I looked at it in surprise: personal pizza, grapes, and carrots! Okay for a kid that had not eaten in over 3 days I was not a happy camper! He was throwing up the last day he remembered at home. Why on earth would they let him order a pizza? I looked at the dried out carrots and inspect the slightly shriveled grapes. I then inspect them further and find one with mold on it! I WAS LIVID!!
