My visit lasted from October 16 thru October 21..spending the first few hours at kershaw county medical center and then moving to palmetto children's hospital where I spent most of that time in baby intensive care. It all started Friday night around 7 pm..i was breathing funny & burning up and daddy checked my temperature and it was 102.6. My granny called the er & then mommy & daddy took me there. I was completely pale and very ill. They gave my oxygen and I hated it. They put a catheter in and took lots of blood. They planned to take liquid out of my spinal cavity, but they said I looked so bad that they'd prefer me go to another hospital, so me & mommy got to ride in the ambulance together & I slept the whole time while mommy was worried sick. Once I got to Richland they put me in my room, took more blood, got me settled, & then brought mommy and daddy in to see me. Then they kicked mommy and daddy out and took the liquid out of my spine. They said it wasn't the flu, but could've been the n1h1 virus. By Monday my fever stayed down enough to move to a regular room and come Wednesday they let me go home. I hope I never have to go thru that again.
I had alot of gifts & visitors too! My visitors were mommy & daddy of course! Also their was my Nana, aunt Kim, Nora, Steve, my papa, granny, grandpa, grandma, great grandmama, & great grandaddy. My gifts were a handmade blanket & stuffed puppy from the group child life at the richland hospital. My great aunt Nora got me this cute talking froggy. My Nana & aunt Kim got me a get well soon card & a you are my sunshine bear. And My grandpa & grandma got me a blue stuffed giraffe.
