Re: Tammy--how is Mercedes today?

  • Hey, I just posted an update in the other thread but I will repost here.

    I talked to SIL this morning. She is basically ready to curse everyone at the hospital out.

    Mercedes was throwing up and had diarrhea all night long. She is on oxygen and still at only 91%. Every time a doctor comes in they give her a different story and no one is telling her WTH is going on with my poor little niece. They are asking SIL "how long has she had asthma??" Ummmm, no one ever diagnosed her with asthma. Then they think its a stomach bug, or this or that. She is just getting so frustrated because they are making guesstimates without running any tests. Oy!

  • Oh no! Sorry to hear. I know how SIL feels, i hate when hospitals give you the run around. Where is she at?

    Im praying for a speedy recovery

  • She's at St. Christophers.
  • Ugh, that suckss!  Hope the doctors get their shitee together.
  • :-(

    I hope they actually RUN some tests and figure out what is going on. It sounds like they are just treating her symptoms instead of getting to the cause of the illness.

  • Wow.  That is ridiculous.  Can they get her transferred to CHOP? 
  • poor little peanut!  i hope she gets rid of all of this quickly.

    when i was a kid i had really bad asthma and when it would act up i would have all sorts of intestinal issues as well.  asthma is not great but can be treated and controlled.  i apparently "grew out" of mine.

  • ugh, poor thing. Tell SIL to start demanding answers as calmly as possible there should be a patient advocate line for the hospital if she is getting the run around she should call them up and try to get some help from higher ups.

    BIL has already said this. They are waiting for her Pedi to come (she's on her way) and has already mentioned that he will take her to CHOP if they don't start doing something.

    They discharged her a week ago and should have sent her home with a nebulizer and never did.

  • Good.  Glad her pedi is on the way.  She is a baby, she shouldn't be this sick.  They should be doing every test they need to on her.   Or maybe I watch too much House. 

     

  • I was going to suggest CHOP as well.  But dear good, it's not like she is at Joe's Corner Community Hospital -- it's St. Christopher's.  They are a highly regarded peds hospital -- I'm kind of horrifed by their actions!

  • That's really a shame that they can't get their act together and diagnose her properly.  Hopefully for her sake and your SIL, the treat her correctly soon or she gets transefered to CHOP.

  • if in fact she does have asthma and will be at chop ask for dr. sharon swineberg.  she was my pulmonary doc's partner.  i would recommend him but unfortunately he passed away a few years ago.  it is a great practice.  no bullsh!t and they will fight the hospital for their patients.  (ie i was having a major asthma attack and some intern told my mother it was an ear infection....)

  • wth?! , i  hope they run some tests right now to figure out what is going on asap! i really hope she gets better soon

  • OMG WTH!!??  How could they not run tests on a baby??  I hope the pedi can shed light on all of this and you start getting answers and she starts getting better soon!!

  • I'm sorry she isn't getting answers from the docs Tam. I am praying for that little princess.
  • Tammy, so sorry to hear that she is sick again. WTH are these people doing? Sending her lots more positive thoughts for a speedy recovery.
