Katie is slightly brighter today but still not well enough to come home. The consultant wants her to stay another night for more fluid. The care at the QE2 has been very good - apart from the first 6 hour infusion taking 12 hours! For those of you who know about NHS commissioning - thats how the hospitals keep charging for an extra nights bed stay! She has a bed by the window so she at least she can look out and watch the lovely half-term weather that she is missing! Sophie, Sam and Evie came to visit quickly this afternoon, but Katie was struggling to keep her eyes open. She still feels nauseous (and has just needed another injection to help with that) and unable to drink enough to maintain her fluid level. However the plan is to still to try and get Katie out of hospital tomorrow and go to Manic Ceramics with the children for some messy fun.
