Back In PICU
We admitted Kiera last night. She was very acidotic (high Co2 levels in her blood). She's on the big hospital ventilator right now and on I.V. fluids and a little Pedialyte. We're waiting on stool cultures. We're not really sure what is wrong. It may be just backlash from the virus she seemed to catch on Memorial Day or something else. Her pulmonologist still has to see her today. Her upper right lobe of her lung is very cloudy on her x-ray. I guess the easiest explanation is that she is just "funky." Hopefully this will be a short stay...maybe 4 or 5 days.
