Oral or IV

I know, I know, I shouldn't have left you hanging after that last urpy post.  Don't worry though, Averi has taken posting on the blog into her own hands.  I'm not sure if it will be more than raspberries but at least she will be posting.
After Thursday night we re-decided that nighttime is Averi's yuck time.  Remember how we gave her Zofran every night when we were at home?  Well, we forgot about that when we came back to the hospital, just like we forgot that Thursday was going to be the rough night.  Anyways, we have been giving her Zofran at night again and she has been doing just fine.

Dan stayed with Averi over the weekend and had a little confusion with the nurse about the Zofran.  At home we give her an oral solution but at the hospital they give it to her as an IV.  When the nurse asked how they usually gave it to her, Dan told her that we just push it in (talking about putting it in her G-tube).  The nurse seemed really confused and said that the order said it should be over 15 minutes (if she had the order why was she asking Dan).

After much debate she hooked it up to the broviac as Dan tried to stop her from giving an oral med in her IV.  Long story short, they finally figured out that they were talking about two different ways to give it.  At least Dan was paying attention. :)

Other than that, it was an uneventful weekend, which is just what we like.

I'm glad Dan pays such close attention.
