Day 18 - Our first mid-night visit to the ER

So by now we have gotten into the rhythm of being awake almost all night with Anna as the steroid she takes keeps her up and very very hungry. Tonight was different. With excruciating stomach pains we rushed to the hospital.  The nurses literally sucked. They didn't know how to use simple equipment. Yeah slightly concerning. To manage her pain they ordered 400 ml of Tylenol to be administered by IV. We noticed the bottle was 1000ml she got the whole thing !

Anna was taken for ex-rays of her tummy     Which tuned out to be ok. Kid just needs to get some movement going on in her belly if you know what I mean. 

So I checked with the day crew about the dosage and they said she should not have gotten that much. Guess what? What was really nothing more than a need for some fiber in her diet turned into a toxicity test. Poor kid :( 

Luckily she's fine as far as that's concerned. 

Getting X-rays of her stomach.
