Good morning everybody. Been up since about 8:30. John came in about 1:30 this morning.
So…they have been pricking his finger every four hours. They need for Nicholas to fall into a low blood sugar so they can do tests they can only do while he’s in a low blood sugar. Well, this morning, they checked it and it was 62. That was almost an hour ago. Nobody knows what they are supposed to be doing. I don’t understand how you can order to have his finger pricked every 4 hours – around the clock – to look for low blood sugar and not have orders in place for what to do when it happens. God bless America. Now the doctor on call is trying to sort everything out and she tells us that the level is not that much below 65 and they want to keep checking the levels every 4 hours. I may have to put my mama hat on not be nice. UGH!!!
I just hope this is not a preview for what it to come for the day… On a better note, Nicholas had a pretty good night. We are still getting the kinks out of his schedule and trying to get everything in place for the next three weeks.
Don’t forget to turn your clocks back before you go to bed tonight. At least that is one good thing to look forward to – an extra hour of sleep!!
I hope everyone has a great day. When and if things happen, I’ll post it. 🙂
