Update on ElizabethElizabeth did not get moved to the regular pediatric floor today as hoped. In the ICU there is one nurse for every patient. At most a nurse might have two patients to care for but on the pediatric floor there is one nurse for four to five patients. Because they are still monitoring her blood sugar every hour it would very difficult for a nurse covering five patients to be in every hour for the blood sugar.
Elizabeth was able to go to the play room on the pediatric floor and she really enjoyed playing with all the new toys. Andrew also had a blast playing with the new toys.
