ER again !!!

We were back in the ER last night for high calcium again. The nurse called and I could tell by her voice that it was bad. She said head back up. I wanted to give him fluid at home but high calcium can cause heart arrithmias and thats not good on a heart kid. So when we got there we told them we were not staying, so they gave him a bolus and rechecked it and it was down a little so they let us go. Yahh, we have been in the hospital 3 times in the last two and a half months and in the ER three times, enough is enough. His crit is also going down so he will probably need a transfusion pretty soon, I don't know if they will admit him for that or just do it in the RTU and let us go, he still has his picc so we can do stuff so easy, I love having it I want to keep it forever. At least we are home for Thanksgiving, thats all that matters.
