Egleston Children's Hospital

We made it Egleston and went into Emergercy for eval.
After they took a Sat level (oxygen),
we were coded red and sent right to room.
They ordered an EKG, X-ray, and Echo cardiogram.
Finally it was determined we would be staying
and surgery would be scheduled pretty soon.
Here we are in the room.
Jing was pretty scared so I was allowed to sit on the bed
and hold her the whole time.
We were moved to the second floor~ Cardiac ICU
around 1:00 and felt complete peace about where she was.
Here she is all settled in her crib.
Poor EK broke out in the worst case of hives
I have ever seen on her.
We have NO idea what provoked it
but Dr. Morgan once again came to the rescue
and suggested we give her benedril every 6 hours
and gave a prescription steroid.
She is feeling much better now!!!
We feel SO blessed to be in this wonderful hospital
in the Cardiac ICU with the most wonderful nurses
and amazing doctors.
We could not be in a better place!!!

Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm,
and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure.

  1. So glad that you are in such good hands. Sorry to hear about EK's hives. I can't imagine how exhausted you are. We are still pretty out of it, and we are at home recovering still. Our hearts are with you.
