Much Ado About Nothing
Aidan had a fever, when was it? Tuesday. Because of his immune status, he had to be evaluated (6:30 PM Wednesday). Heart rate was elevated (due to dehydration) and abdomen was tender, so he had to go to the ER for blood work and x-rays (8:30 PM Wednesday). No significant findings, but with fever and compromised immune status docs felt he needed to stay for observation and fluids (admitted to hematology oncology unit at 4:00 AM Thursday). Was stable through the morning and general surgeon was not concerned about his abdomen (r/o appendicitis). Mom fit to be tied. Aidan hungry (had been NPO since ER admission). Aidan finally cleared to eat at noon Thursday. Discharged 1 PM Thursday. Safely at home 2 PM. Asleep on couch 4 PM. All in a day. Pics tomorrow.
