Well, Charlotte had not really drunk anything since Sunday, so this was starting to concern both of us. She was also constipated and had not had a messy diaper since Sunday morning. We had attempted to give her medication for the constipation, but this was difficult as she was not drinking any liquids.
We contacted the Pediatric Oncology/Hematology Clinic at Albany Medical Center (Dr. Pearce is Charlotte’s primary care physician while she is undergoing chemotherapy). They told us to bring Charlotte in for evaluation. We got down there at about 2:30pm and they hooked Charlotte up to a IV to get some fluids into her. She was hooked up to this for about 45-mins, and then we were able to leave once Dr. Pearce had talked to us a little.
She told us to give Charlotte a "watery food" diet for a little bit. Yogurt, jello, pudding, fruit juices, etc. I was sitting there thinking, "Hold on! I can do that diet!" 🙂
Anyway, we are home now, and Charlotte is sleeping. Time for Mommy and Daddy bedtime soon, it’s been an exhausting day, again!
