Alive & Kickin'
We're home from the hospital now, and Katie is just fine. We ended up not having to stay for the full eight hours because Katie's vital signs were holding steady and if she was going to have any effects from the meds, it would have started at least an hour or so before she was released. The doctor said it was unlikely that she had taken any pills, or that they just didn't have any effect on her. Either way, she was good to go.
It was a good thing that the doctor released her when he did, too, because both Katie and Phil were getting very antsy at that point. It was close to bedtime and Katie always gets a bit whiny around then.
Oh, and I forgot to mention in my earlier post that my mother had also neglected to feed Katie any lunch while she was at her house, so the poor baby was absolutely starving. Luckily, the doctor had told us that Katie could eat or drink anything she wanted while we were there, so I went to the cafeteria to get us all something to eat. I got us each a hot dog, and some milk, yogurt, and a Nutrigrain bar for Katie. Sadly, that wasn't enough to satisfy her hunger, so Phil ended up having to go to a vending machine to get her some cookies, too. The kid is like a bottomless pit sometimes.
Anyhow, long story short, we're home, Katie's fine, and now I must try to get some sleep. I have a big day of cleaning and purging ahead of me tomorrow.
