Our second day started early. At 5AM, we brought Aki to another room so that the nurses can reinsert the dextrose needle. He went back to sleep after that quick dramafest.
Doc ruled out dengue because Aki’s platelet count was steady at 220. She was then looking at the viral infection angle. Doc also ordered nebulizer every 4 hours. Surprisingly, Aki would let the med tech take blood samples but he would do everything in his power to keep the cute face mask away.
The highlight of the day was the visit from my in laws. Not only did they bring the yummy cake ( egg cake according to Aki), they also brought Aki’s potty and beloved small pillow!
