Ada is back in the hospital again. Last week she had some fever so she had a blood work done and they found that she had high white count. The nursing home quickly send her back to ER. Not enough evident that she was so sick, the young ER doctor send her back home because she did not high enough fever that they can keep her in the hospital. How high is too high? Well, she had 100.3 but 101 is a requirement. Ada is not a typical patient and she prove them wrong. On Tuesday night at 10 o'clock, her nurse took her temp and it was 89, 2 hours later she was perspiring like crazy. Her sweat dripped down and I cannot kept up with it. The nurse took the temp and it had gone up to 104. Immediately, we called the ambulance and took her back to ER. This time we took advantage and demand that she got full attention and the best care they can give her because they had realized that they made a big mistake sending her back on Friday. Amazing how they can call those big head Neuro doctors to come to see her because they had refused to see her before.
Now we are back in the 6th floor. I walked around and say hello to my old friends, all the nurses who took care of her and still thinking about her. I can't say that about the doctors, they seem to forget that she is still exist.
At first, they thought that she has some kind of infection from virus, but might not be that bad as they think. Ada, Ardis and I spend 15 hour in the ER. We both wrapped ourselves in big blankets, sitting and sleeping on the chairs. We were lucky that not only they can find the room for her, but also assigned the best doctor for Ada. You wouldn't believe how many doctors and specialists who had paraded into her room today (including someone from Neuro group).
Finally, the cervical collar that was on her neck for 8 weeks has been removed. Ada got her neck clean for the first time after the accident (imagine that).
We will stay at the hospital for a couple more day. Meanwhile, I know that our friend at American Village will miss Ada, but we will be back soon. We miss seeing them too.
This time, I hope, she will be discharged from the hospital in a proper way. With all the important informations she needs; medicaion, nutrition and list of the doctors names in case we need more help.
More information later, I need to catch up on my sleep, but Ada is fine for now.
