Back on the IV fluids

I'm not sure how this will affect our prospect of going home today but Raya had to go back on IV fluids this morning. The GI doctor that's been here since Sunday had put in orders that if the amount of fluid drained from her stomach was more than 240cc, she would need to have IV fluids to replace it. Yesterday's total was about 270 so she'll be back on the IV for 8 hours today. When her favorite person from the IV team drew her blood this morning, she also took out IV #2 and put in IV #3 (in her hand this time) because #2 was starting to go bad & I'm pretty sure her ankle is probably stiff from the position it was taped in for 5 days. So thank you, Nicole, for fixing that. :)
She also threw up greenish-yellow stuff last night for the first time in 2 days. There's a different doctor on starting today so we'll see what he says about everything. At least I got to go home for a while yesterday to make the other kids' Halloween costumes so now I don't have to worry about that. :)
