Piper has so many procedures and tests that I think she needs her own blackberry to keep track of her busy schedule!!! Today alone she did the following : replace NG tube, change dressing for NG tube, blood drawn for labs (twice), renal scan, replace port needle, change dressing on port site, speech therapy, ultrasound, vitals checked every 4 hours, placed on heart monitor for the night, and she ate real food for breakfast and lunch!!!! That's not including the parade of doctors and nurses that came by to look at her and listen to her with the stethoscope. She is quite tired right now, and so is Mommy. Tomorrow she will have dialysis. :-( Please pray that she rests well, and that tomorrow goes well.
