Day 58 - Slow Down and Look Around You

Thursday was another lab and clinic day for us. We had realized the day before the Tyler would get flushed when we delivered his IV of magnesium. When we mentioned it to the nurse, she realized that we were pumping it in to fast. When we got home, I was finally able to decipher the label that said how fast to administer the magnesium, but it certainly wasn't clearly labeled for a layperson. Instead of 100 ml/hr, we not have the pump set at 60 ml/hr.

Test results:

WBC: 6.75
HCT: 31
ANC: 4.72
PLT: 80

Next week, Tyler has his next-to-last lumbar puncture, so we are hoping for a repeat of his last poke. I'd say the odds are against us, but one can always dream!
