A Quick Word of Advice
Just a quick note to anyone who has found this blog and is sitting in the hospital faced with all of the craziness, information and confusion after his/her child experienced hypoxia. The one thing I wish I would have found online or been told: TAKE NOTES. Get a notebook and immediately write down the names of doctors and nurses who talk to you. From the smallest details to the specialists who come in for permission for treatments or procedures, be sure you write down the name of the doctor, what day they came in and at what time, and what was discussed. We had so many nurses, doctors, and specialists coming at us that it all seems a blur. Thank God my husband had a clear head and is able to remind me of things. I was medicated and in shock and it all seemed to run together after a while. If for no other reason than to keep everything and everyone straight in your head....keep notes!
