A better day

Lemme out!


Eating AND keeping it down. :) (above pics are from this morning)

Auntie Mary Jane

Last night (above)she couldn't keep her head up, today--a million times better. I can't keep up with her...that's the way we like it.

After MANY tests, some results still has been determined she has an infection in her line that goes near her heart. SO, no one needs to feel guilty (myself included) of who might have given her what. They have been hitting her hard with antibiotics since we arrived and they have definitely helped. She is back to herself this morning. Cruising around our room in her walker, wanting to get out of her tight quarters. Which we can't because we are on the immunocomprimised unit. No one is really allowed out to prevent spreading anything to anyone else that is also immunosuppressed. Totally understandable, but makes for a little cabin fever.

They are running more labs and waiting to determine what kind of organism it is. This will determine whether they pull the line out, treat it with more antibiotics etc. etc. So for now, we feel lucky that this hospitalization isn't because of "liver" problems, per say. She'll fight this and we will be back to life as usual, hopefully home by the weekend. Cheers to LuLu for her sweet, fighting spirit God blessed her with.

P.S. Happy St. Patty's Day. Another, luckily less important holiday spent in the hospital. Didn't know it was today til a volunteer brought me a pot of gold (chocolate) that I've been eating for breakfast. Luckily, I packed a green shirt so LuLu isn't allowed to pinch me...or I'll pinch her back, really hard. (wink, wink) That's how this holiday works, right? She has no green, but I'll spare her this year.
