C. has had several days of dehydration, zero appetite and lethargy. For us, that's meant hours of giving her water and of spoon feeding her minimal portions of food. Celebrations erupt whenever she wets her diaper.
Today we had our wonderful home-visiting nurse come by to draw blood so we can see whether she needs more serious treatment.
We've been greeted twice now at the end of the school day with "C. refused to eat or drink and was dry all day."
So today, after her hydro session - in which she didn't do well - we brought her home lest she dry out again in the "care" of the staff.
From time to time emergencies arise that make me long for the good ol' "profoundly disabled with refractory epilepsy".
That's C. today, over on the right, while we await the blood test results.
