Day +103

So the resident doctor came in for a chat about Katlyn. She was surprised that Katlyn seemed to be feeling a little better because her bloodwork is getting worse. Her blood has become acidotic. This happens for many reasons, but in Katlyns case it's probably due to extreme dehydration. She is just losing so much. So we will be starting to infuse bicarbonate to to try and neutralize Katlyns blood. Once we start we will recheck her blood in four hours to see if there is an improvement. On the plus side though all her other electrolytes seems to be normalized with the extra iv support. She is back to sassing the nurses and giving her mother and father a hard time. LOL!! I love her little smile so much. Despite a hard day, we have shared some good laughs.
