Spending the night.

Spending our first night in California in CHOC's PICU.
The ER wasnt the greatest, but I dont think there is such a thing with ER's. Its a dual ER with an adult hospital next door. They never got a history on him, which wasnt a biggy at first because we thought we'd get our tube and be on our merry way. Then we were told we had to stay the night because he couldnt get into IR for a new tube until tomorrow. The nurse came in to say she'd given report to the floor nurse, and I remember thinking, what report? You never got one from me! When we got to our room I mentioned the vent, and the charge nurse was like, ugh, we dont do vents on this floor. They were super nice and worked quick to get us moved. Their PICU rooms are ginormous! I can so handle these rooms, with a big parent bed and each room is seperate, no curtains in this PICU! Hopefully we can get the tube in bright and early. They are saying here they usually do sedation. But I will fight that simply because its unnecessary medication when its a 10 minute procedure he's had a billion times.

I guess we'd see the hospital sooner or later. Just didnt think it would be quite so soon!

At least you have a bed, right? And at least it didn't happen in the middle of nowhere on your drive down!

What a way to be welcomed to CA. Hopefully moving in will be less adventurous than your first night has been:)
