Night 3 is well upon us. And we are no closer to finding out what is wrong with the princess. They did an abdominal scan today; everything was normal. Yay, but not, if you know what I mean? Seriously, the not knowing is really worse than the knowing. There is something wrong with my child; can we please just find out what it is so that we can treat it?! I know that there is something wrong; it is no longer a shock or worry. The worry now is that we just don’t know what it is.
They drew blood from her earlier today; I had to help hold her down. Geez but my child is strong! Took 3 of us to hold her down, all whilst she was screaming “mommy make them stop doing that!” and “stop doing that please!” I’m supposed to make her feel better, but here I am contributing to her pain :( The blood was for allergy tests, however that will take 1-2 weeks for the results, as they’re sent off site to be processed. They normally discharge a child and then the results are phoned in or something like that. As much as I am so thrilled at the prospect of going home, I will be going home with more questions than answers.
I want to fix my child. Whatever it is, I’ll take it on. Send it to my body, I don’t care.
