Edit: We have written several posts about the accident & Eira’s journey here, click > here < to see them all.
It is 10.40am on Friday 3rd.
Yesterday was up and down- we were told Eira could go home but then she vomited twice and became sleepy and unwell so we are still here.
Edit: if you don’t know what happened to Eira, click here.
Eira is in good spirits, better than yesterday afternoon, and we are hoping for this to carry on.
It has become apparent that there are several issues with the care here including miscommunications and lack of training. This is making being here exceptionally stressful on top of the injury because she is not getting the best care possible and we are looking into leaving Bali as soon as possible, either to Singapore, Australia or the UK if that is an option. She probably cannot fly to the UK even with a nurse etc so Singapore or Australia are likely options.
Some of our issues include the fact that a nurse gave Eira her nose drops in her ear yesterday, the fact that the staff here did not know to turn her onto her side when she was vomiting on her back, and the fact that the nurses told us to go home yesterday (they said they had spoken to a doctor on the phone) even after she had vomited twice and become unwell and groggy. Then this morning the neurologist came in and was concerned about the vomiting and that she had not eaten since before vomiting yesterday. He is arranging another CT scan for today so we don’t know who the nurses spoke to yesterday because there is a mismatch between what we have been told by them and what we are told by him. Obviously we are ignoring the nurses now and aren’t leaving until we are as sure as we can be that that is the best thing for her.
The staff have not been using antibacterial hand scrub before doing her meds (I am giving her meds orally now) and the blankets and hospital gowns with her blood and vomit on have been left accumulating in her bathroom since Monday. They left a bedsheet with her vomit on her bed for two days until I saw it and told them and then they changed the wrong part of the bed. It is just very frustrating.
I will update soon, thank you for your prayers and thoughts and messages.
