HOME..just busy!

Holy Cow!!!!! I have not had a minute to post. We have been discharged. They have K on some stronger antibiotics for a bacterial infection in her lungs. This bacteria may have been festering for awhile and they seem to think that is what may have been causing problems (migraines, cough, vomiting, fevers) for the last couple of months. Its not a common bacteria to see, so it was likely missed/passed off for pneumonia. Therefore, with ALL the antibiotics she has been and nothing has touched it and she has never gotten better.

So far, she has done very well since being on the new antibiotic. Now her heart rate and O2 at night is better than it has been in a long time. No more naps and all she wants to do is run and play. She spent the day in her swimming suit, although no swimming took place. Also her appetite is making a comeback. It has taken a hit lately.

I am so grateful that our stay was short and simple. Grateful that it was NOT what was originally diagnosed from the doctor who read her chest xrays (we will not be going back). We feel so humbled and blessed. All it takes is a few seconds for your world to take on a drastic change for the good or the bad. Needless to say, after what we were told on Wednesday......We feel blessed! Thank you for your love and prayers. We have some friends up at the hospital that could really use your prayers. Their names are Carter and Megan, they would be grateful for your faith and prayers....
