Our little Sicky

Shabbat was spent with fever, a lot of vomiting and diahrrea. I nursed Tehilla on demand. She was extremely tired and slept a lot. I had to wake her to eat several times. She had many wet diapers, so we knew she wasn't dehydrated. When she was awake, she was quite cranky. Very few smiles from our little trooper. Her fever finally broke this afternoon. Her O2 saturation has been between 80-85. 

I called our cardiac nurse to check in. She felt that Tehilla didn't need to be seen by the cardiologist, but would update him to let him know. We have an appointment with her pediatrician for tomorrow. 

Our little heart warrior princess is fighting strong. Thank you to everyone for the thoughts and prayers. 


  1. This is so hard on your entire family and the poor little heart warrior herself. Everything in this life is a lesson. As hard as this is, think of the love lessons all of you are learning -- and how much love you are sharing with the rest of us. Kol tuv.

  2. Would you please inform your beautiful baby that one major heart defect per baby is the limit. We don't allow tummy bugs, random fevers, or bouts of unexplained crying. Nuh-uh. You tell Tehilla from me that she is allowed to take her meds, eat and grow, and have funny sats (compared to the rest of the world). That's it. No special extras. K?
    Hugs to heart-parent warriors and hugest bestest wishes for a boring week ahead, b'ezrat Hashem!
