Day 7 of the ketogenic diet

Hannah's ketones are 160 now!  80-160 is where they want her to be.  Her blood gases today were a little abnormal so she is in metabolic acidosis.  They just need to watch her to see if they need to increase her sodium bicarb.    She has done this before and is one of the things I was worried would happen during the diet.  We won't go home til they get that under control.
  She is probably having surgery tomorrow morning to have a port put in for blood draws.    They were checking her clotting factors today since she has von wilebrands  a bleeding disorder too.  The nurse is going to check for me to make sure.  I will post more tomorrow.
