The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

Words.

Thursday. Daniela. Hospital. Fever. 102.9. Seizure. 911. 10 minutes. Paramedics. 104.6. ER. Work up. Possible pneumonia. Subdural hematoma. Transfer. PICU. Fever. 104.6. Antibiotics. Work up. Fever. 103. EEG. Labs. Infection. Waiting. Good nurse. Bad nurse. Waiting.

Subdural hematoma, subacute = approximately one month old injury. Fall? Daycare? MRI. Waiting. Possible small bleed in temporal lobe from seizure. Waiting. Subdural hematoma, nature unknown, location = possible child abuse. Parents? DCFS investigation. Police investigation. MRI--still waiting. Skeletal x-ray series. Waiting. Incomprehensible. Unthinkable. WTF?

Daniela. PICU. Infection. Injury. Insane.

Unfounded. Absurd. Simply unbelievable. Who could think such a thing?

Dante's ninth circle of...

Hell.

I'm stunned. I couldn't even raise my fingers to the keyboard after reading.
My prayers are with her for a return to health. I'm SO sorry about the investigation and that must be terrifying, even though you have no reason to worry. You will be in my thoughts.
