Admitted

We're on the third floor, same room as last July post-pull-thru-surgery. Baby has enterocolitis. Her first rectal flush hit two walls, two techs, one surgery resident, and covered her gurney in a litre of awful smelling... well... enterocolitis slush. Now I know how to recognize the smell. No wonder I almost vomited from it yesterday.

She's getting rectal flushes every 6 hours and is on some mega-drugs. She may be having a reaction to one though. Her legs have turned red. They'll do I.V. Benedryl soon. If she is reacting to one of her enterocolitis drugs, this is bad on several counts.

It's about 1:30 a.m., and I've slipped out to make this update and see if I can get a little dinner. Must run so I can get back to put baby down for the night.
