Saturday update

One more night in the hospital. The docs didn’t want to give Nan the new antibiotic on the same day as her Remicade, since they are pretty harsh on the system. Also didn’t want to give new antibiotics on the day we leave in case of reaction.

So, new antibiotics today, home health nurses will come by tomorrow afternoon and show me how to infuse the antiobiotics into her PIC line at home, and we should get to leave tomorrow afternoon sometime.

Hopefully will be able to post from my own computer tomorrow evening that we are at home, Natalie is resting comfortably, and I have a pomegranate martini in my hand!

Thanks again for all the prayers, comments, kind thoughts – we feel very loved.

    First, glad to hear your daughter will be coming home soon…from what I’ve been reading back through your posts, it doesn’t sound like fun, and second, glad you’re enjoying a pomegranate martini. You deserve some cheer in your life. :)

  4. I feel sure you’ll be home tomorrow, but I’ll keep praying anyway. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    Keep that martini as your goal! I saw your FB post about your roommate, which is so hard, with it your last night. You guys have really been through the ringer. I pray this is it for you, and that Natalie’s meds will keep her home!
