At The Children's Hospital, that is. This morning I called the Neurology Clinic, and the nurse said she'd report our concerns to the neurologist, but that she wanted us to see his pediatrician today. So I called the Special Care Clinic to get him in ASAP, and after an hour on hold, the nurse there told me I should take him to the Emergency Room. Not what I wanted to hear. And now we're here at the Emergency Room, and they're telling us he needs to be admitted to the ICU again. He is moving up, though. He'll be in the PICU (Pediatric), not the NICU. Of course I knew that Dexter's completely unresponsive weekend was a bad sign, but for some reason, when I left the house this morning, it never crossed my mind that he'd have to be admitted. His bassinet is going to seem very empty tonight.
