In Hospital - again

This is just a quick update while I am home gathering up Ellie's food and overnight gear for the hospital. Sensitive Boo had a bad reaction to the codeine. They gave her some Narcam and she popped right out of it for 30 minutes but then right back down again. She was satting really low. Turns out Codeine has a suppressive effect on the lungs and the Ellie is sensitive to it.

I can't tell you how bummed out we were that this has happened and how relieved we were when they successfully pulled her out of it with the Narcam.

They have ruled out shunt malfunction and seizures. They are keeping her in for observation at Children's until she is back to her baseline with out the help of Narcam.

Will update when we are home again some time tomorrow. Any good thoughts for Ellie will be much appreciated. She is in the wars, again I am sad to report.

Nooooo :(

I am sending LOTS of good vibes her way. No long hospital stay. Just a visit. Like to In-And-Out Burger. Quick.

(PS: Since you are into all this med stuff..thought you might want to know that it is "Narcan" with an "n." It's generic name is naloxone and it is an opioid receptor blocker (blocks the sedation effects of morphine/codeine)

Sorry to hear things are not the best for you. It seems nothing can be by the book for you guys despite all your preparations for a smooth road. Hopefully while in the hospital they can give her pain meds to make her comfortable while she is being closely monitored. We are thinking of you.
