Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it!

First Hospital Visit

After another evening of more vomiting and not being able to hold down liquids, Ken and I brought Gabriella to the hospital at 2:00 AM. The second they began the fluids intravenously we noticed a change in her almost immediately. She obviously did not do well when they were setting up the IV line and she was curious to pull at it once it was in, but did better when the newness of it wore off. At the end of the evening the doctor reached out to shake her hand and she shook his pointer finger! It was precious.

Hopefully she will be less nauseous now that she is re-hydrated and will be better able to hold down liquids. We have another day (hopefully the final day) of clear liquids and no solids.

During the exam they also noticed that her right ear appeared dark (her previous two ear infections were in her left ear) so I am hoping it is not another ear infection. We will be following up with her Pediatrician later today about the stomach bug and her ear.
