The X-ray showed that the Right lung is diminished, which isn't surprising. "Noticeable deformity of spine and ribs." Oh my gosh! Seriously? We had no idea! 🤣. That one made me chuckle. I really hope the radiologist didn't think that was new information for us!
An IV was finally put in on the 3rd try and her blood gas (CO2 level) was good, so that was reassuring. But her respiratory rates and heart rate are still very high (RR is 66 on bipap and HR is 142 asleep as we speak.). The decision they are making is PICU versus floor, so I'm not sure how long it will be. "Soon" is a relative term in the hospital.
