Payton's Week...

I hope you are settled and ready to read for a minute. :) I don't even know where to begin, but basically something is wrong and they aren't sure what. We have been back and forth so many times between Peds and the UNM hospital, I am ready to scream! Each claiming it's not our area, but oh something is defiantly wrong! So on Monday we were told "take her to the ER at UNM, they will see her and they will do all kinds of testing on her" so we headed down there, for Hours mind you.
After testing, poking, and prodding, they still have no clue what is wrong, but this whole time her heart rate has stayed very strong at 150! Sometimes spiking to 168, then dropping to 110.....none of these things being normal. Meanwhile my poor Payton starts "crying" (she's making the sounds but is dehydrated so there are no tears) and tells me her Panza (tummy in Spanish) hurts I lift her shirt and sure enough she is having an allergic reaction to the leads and tapes! Keep in mind, I told them upon admission that she is highly allergic to different things as simple as band aids, so did they think these would be ok? Sure Mrs. Cooper!
One of the "best" things I discovered they have the wrong girl in the wrong records! When they were discussing certain things in the records I thought that is not Payton, that is what they did to T! So I went through them..... Ohhhhhhh there are papers in "Payton's" records that are Aspens, Paytons and Trinitys! So I did get ahold of their pediatrician yesterday and told him they need to sit me at a big table with all 3 girls records and let me fix them, which he urgently agreed with! He said that is what I was afraid of! She is home for now while we see what needs to be done, they are meeting about her today which is good. Prayer is a powerful thing and while she is not 100% or even 75% she does appear to be doing better! The 2 bags of I.V. fluid did wonders for her I imagine. We decided to give her body a break and took all her leads and monitors off for now, (they know it stays that high all the time) and her body needs to heal at least alittle bit. Thank You for reading my venting! We are frustrated, and this relieves a tiny bit of my stress :)

I am also alergic to adhesive tape! man, try to stay strong! especially for little payton! I am sure you are anyway. But I agree you do need to sit down with the dr. and get their records straightend out!!! makes you wonder how many other's they may have mixed up!!?? thanks for the venting! I don't mind.

Oh Jody! I am so sorry that they haven't been able to figure out anything with her! I hope and pray that they can find the perfect doctor for her soon that can figure this whole mess out and get her well again! Thanks for keeping all of us updated and give her big hugs and kisses from me! I am going to pass this along to my father in law and his church-he is a Pastor! Also to others that we know so I will keep looking for updates!

That poor, poor baby!! I'm so sorry for what you guys are going through, Jody!! Bless her little heart. I can't believe no one can figure out what is wrong. That has got to be the most frustrating thing in the whole world!!! Jody I am praying for her and I just know that God will work a miracle on her heart and lead you guys to the right doctors to find some much needed answers quickly!!!

Hang in there! I'll be thinking about you guys!!

Oohh poor Payton! When you said "allergic reaction" I was imagining some red skin, but nothing like that. Wow. Poor kid. I hope you can get her figured out soon.

Oh Jody I am so sorry and poor Payton! It really doesn't surprise me that their records were mixed up, but at the same time they should have been more careful not to do that! You guys are always in our prayers. We hope Payton gets better soon and they find out what to do for her. Keep us posted! We miss you guys a lot and wish we were closer so we could help!
