January 2011 – Hospital Day 1

Lil’Sophie was admitted to St Louis Children’s Hospital this morning to regulate her blood platelets and clotting before her surgery tomorrow. The little fighter in her kicked in when the IV team arrived. After several people and several tries they were eventually successful in administering an IV into her arm. Now that she’s been given an infusion of platelets, they will recheck her labs late tonight and see where things stand. If everything is on target she will have her central line surgery tomorrow at 1:00pm.

I’ve included a video of her playing piano on an iPad with her IV arm.  For those of you who cannot view the video, below are a couple of pics.

Playing a song for my daddy!

My IV arm makes fun music!
