hospital blues...

just got back from the hospital... here's what happened:




ok, so there was no sense in whining about how our nanny caused me to be absent from work last week, since it seems that i was destined not to have a complete attendance for october. last friday, i had to leave work early, because my father called and told me that little bea was vomitting and having LBM still (this started the night before, although i thought she was already better that friday morning), and that she was already weak. she wouldn't smile, wouldn't walk. she's not her usual kulit self anymore. so i took a cab home to pick bea and yaya, then took the same cab to the hospital. when we got there, the pedia checked her up. by this time she already vomitted 4 times and LBM 5 times, just for that morning. the pedia mixed 1 sachet of hydrite with 7 oz of water and asked her to drink it. she did, little by little. our pedia said this was a good sign, as long as she doesn't vomit anymore we will just try and hydrate her. one 7oz solution per hour. then we were sent home. thank God the vomitting did stop. her last episode was during the cab ride to the hospital. but the LBM continued... saturday came 7 LBM episodes. almost no food/milk intake. sunday, bea ate taho, some banana and french fries... but 8 LBM episodes. her appetite was ok but we were worried since i think the food she takes doesn't take a long time in her tummy, they go out almost as soon they come in. hubby and i were worried! we also noticed diaper rash on her tushy... that was why she'd howl every diaper change. all throughout the weekend, we were in touch with our pedia, by sunday night, we were told to head for the the admissions office at the hospital, she'd arrange everything. i requested for bed in the hospital ward, i assumed we'd just be there overnight, just enough time to hydrate her again. when we got there i was informed that all she could get was a semi private room. so starts our stay at the hospital. oh well...
