More time at PMH

Princess Margaret Hospital is the children's hospital where Noah spent his first 3 days of life. We didn't expect to continue to see so much of the inside of the damn place!!

We arrived home about 1.30pm today after arriving in the Emergency Department on Saturday night with our very sick boy. He is on the mend now but we are all very tired after a sleepless and slightly stressful weekend.

Noah started with a pretty basic cold a week ago after spending the night at his Nanna's - we arrived Sunday morning to a very snotty grizzly baby - over the week his symptoms continued to get worse instead of better but we weren't too concerned. However on Friday he became very listless and our usually unstoppable cyclone of a boy was barely moving. This combined with high temp and his previous ear infection and urinary tract infection had us heading to the ER for the 3rd time in 6 weeks.

We were seen very quickly and a brief examination had another and then another doctor coming to our cubicle for a look - it's never good when they call in extra doctors! Within no time at all Noah had an IV in his arm and was being given fluids - we were soon told Noah was being admitted. He had blood tests, urine tests, a chest x-ray and an ultrasound but nothing in particular (except the possibility of a slight Urinary Tract Infection) showed up. My 'mum' theory is that he ended up with a hit of gastro plus a bad head cold and maybe the UTI and it just knocked him for 6.

Anyway we're home now and hopefully we can all catch up on the sleep we've missed over the last week. I'm praying it's a VERY long time before I see that emergency department again
