We're Home, Briefly.

Just a quick one to let you know that we're home. We had our consultation with her surgeon, Dr. Jonas on Friday. I have been trying to write about it, but it is very difficult. That will be coming soon, I hope.

Yesterday, Harlie was a having a hard time getting back to herself. She had a fever and was working very hard to breathe. They said the fever was normal for right after a cath, so at first I wasn't worried. But when we got her home it was 103.5. And it wasn't really responding to Tylenol or Motrin. By 10pm it had come down to 102.8. But at 3am, it was back up to 103.7! Her right lung was VERY wheezy, which I don't understand why that would happen after the cath. She's had four other caths, and she's never had as hard of a time recovering. Anyway, so we've been giving her breathing treatments every 4 hours since last night and this morning she's improving. She has no fever now, which is great. And she seems to be getting back to her normal self.

Hopefully, we'll be able to get outside and let her enjoy the weekend. Monday morning will be here awfully quick. We have to have her at the hospital at 6am. We are going back to the Ronald McDonald House on Sunday night.

Well, I'll have more info later.

Thanks,
Christy

I'm so glad the fever broke. I hope she's able to get some sun and fun this weekend. Best of luck next week. Hugs.
