Home Again!

We are back home with Andrea again. She was discharged from the hospital this afternoon. In the good news department, the pulmonologist treating her in the hospital decided to discharge her without the diuretics she's been taking for about a month. That means we don't have to do blood work any more. I believe Andrea got the flu from one of her trips for blood work, so I'm thrilled to be able to skip the weekly visits.

As happy as we are to have Andrea home, she is still a bit sick. We have a nebulizer and Abuterol to give her breathing treatments, and she has a cough especially when eating. Still, she's much better, and we anticipate her continuing to get well.

She's crying now... I have to go. Will try to post more tomorrow.


  1. Welcome's always the best place to be.
    Always thinking about all of you!


  2. Glad to hear you're home. Praying for Andrea's continued improvement.


  3. What a relief! Praying for good health and happiness.
    God Bless.
    Love sue x

  4. A Prayer:
    God our Living Water and Healing Balm:
    visit Andrea with your light. Remedy suffering and disease. Bring her comfort of body, cheer of spirit and mending, tranquil rest, that she may rise up strong. Give to her parents time for sleep and recuperation, and relief from present anxiety. Amen.
