By the next morning we had the test results back. She did in fact have mono, her hgb had dropped again, her echo came back fine, her BP was beginning to get close to normal again, she was able to stay awake with very few cat naps and she was getting her color back! Her nurse upon intake our first day said she looked like a totally different kid on the day we where released, and I gotta say I agree!
So while school may be out for summer there is certainly something new to learn everyday, and of course we turned this into an educational experience. While the girls know what an echo was, Owlet and Poppy had one when they were younger, we did research about the different types of echo. We researched hgb, mono and anemia. Poppy is certainly doing much better but we are taking it easy, getting lots of rest and fluids.
