Home Again

We're home!

And the first thing I did was take a nap. There is no rest for the weary in a hospital.

Chicklet's last two blood tests won't be completed for 5 or 6 days, unfortunately, but all her regular blood work was completely normal, so between that and the MRI, most of the scary super-viruses were ruled out. Her leg has responded well to antibiotics and ibuprofen for the inflammation. The red streak is gone, and she can get her heel down to the ground now, though she still can't straighten all the way to lock her knee.

It appears that she has an infection in a blood vein, but how it got there is unexplained. She's going to continue on antibiotics and ibuprofen for awhile, and be re-checked next week in the doctor's office.

Thanks so much for all your prayers!

Now, to regroup and plunge back into Holy Week. We are looking forward to the arrival of grandparents this afternoon, and the Maundy Thursday service tonight!

Hoping and praying that all continues to go well. Also that the others STAY well. (I like to cover all the bases!) Have a blessed Easter.
