I was up pumping so I thought I would give a quick update on the girl. She finished her transfusion a little bit ago and did great. She was a trooper for her IV and Barb got it in with one stick. She had no reaction to the blood and is doing great. She will get a dose of lasix (sp?) when she wakes up to balance her fluid levels. Basically she will pee out a volume equal to the transfusion. We will have to wait and see what this does for Miss Ella. Her nurse Janice reported that she took her midnight bottle like a champ. I'll let you all know if she is crawling down the hallway when we get there in the morning.
