Last week a vicious stomach virus hit all of us and on Friday my husband took the hummingbird to her doctor. I had to stay home since I could barely get out of bed.
The next thing I know my husband called and said he had to take her to the ER. The hummingbird’s blood sugar was really low. When she was born she had the same problem but it resolved in six weeks. My daughter’s been fine since then and never had any problems with blood sugar until now.
She was admitted to the hospital and spent Friday night there and she was back home Saturday night. Then after her nap on Sunday she started throwing up again and we went straight to the emergency room. The little hummingbird’s glucose level was low again and they admitted her a second time.
I started feeling worse while we were there and had to get I.V. fluids while my little girl and hubby went up to the pediatric ward. By the time I was able to go up there it was close to 1 am and I had to go home the next afternoon because I was so sick.
I was having horrible guilt but some of the nurses told me I should go home and take care of my own health so then I can fully be there for my daughter.
Now her doctor thinks if her blood sugar doesn’t stabilize on its own, she’ll have to go up to a hospital 2 hours away that’s better equipped to find out what’s going on.
I’m going out of my mind because I’m not there for the hummingbird but I’m finally feeling a tad better. I plan to go to the hospital tomorrow and I don’t plan on leaving until she does.
In the meantime I’m a mess and just want my baby girl to get better so she can come home.
