home sweet home…

Kayla was finally released today.  We are exhausted but so grateful to be home.

They have confirmed one ‘bug’ and are awaiting results on additional cultures.  They have prescribed heavy-duty antibiotics and feel confident that she would be covered with running these through the Home IV.  I never imagined I would be learning so much about flushing lines, changing antibiotic bags, replacing tubing, PICC line occlusions and so on… nursing has NEVER been one of my aspirations but it’s worth it to have my girl home.

Looking forward to much needed rest.    Thank you for your prayers, support & love.

    I’ve been thinking about you constantly since your last post and hoping that you’d have Kayla home soon. So glad that has happened for you. There really is no place like home. I hope those bugs will be blasted away quickly now. I’m sure that Mom is the best nurse she could hope to have! Hugs.

  6. Cindy Schaber says:

    This is such great news to hear Kayla is home! Continued prayers for healing and for Bugs be gone! Hope you 2 have a well deserved restful day. The rainy day will provide great comforting rest. Good day to be curled up in pjs. Lots of love and light.

  7. That is the best news for both of you, and a great way to begin a weekend. My prayers continue for complete healing and restoration, and that no cells, other than what God himself put there be allowed to survive in your bodies!

    What a happy day. The power of love and prayers as both are with you each day. Cuddle up with your favorite memory and know that you are in the hearts of everyone.
    I am going to work in my garden today, complete with rubber boots, and will do so with a happy heart knowing you are home Kayla. And by the way sweet girl power we are just shy of $30,000 in our pledges – hearts and pockets opened up with my recent update on your health.

    An abundance of love coming your way.

    Take care & know you are in our prayers throughout the day.
