Pneumonia- day 4

Stats this morning:

O2 sat 91% on room air
Heart rate 100
BP 93/47
Temp 103

Last night was restless with lots of coughing.  Tummy trouble from the antibiotics.  Feeling yuck from continued fever.

Plan was to go home today... because of the high fever the doc wants to run a respiratory panel of tests to see if she might have RSV or flu.  

Now the plan is to stay in PICU and continue to monitor her breathing and O2 needs, continue IV antibiotics and run some blood tests.  

Abby isn't as awake and alert as she was Wednesday.  Now she's very sleepy and acting more sick.

One praise is that she still has an IV that is working!!  They stuck her more times than I could count in ER and finally had to put in an IO (intraosseous line- in her leg bone).  They did eventually get a peripheral line in and IT'S STILL WORKING.
