We are finally settled in back at home!
Charlotte wasn’t able to get the picc line on Thursday due to some car accident victims that got brought in and needed attention.
We were pushed back to Friday around lunchtime. Charlotte had a wonderful child life specialist work with her to make her comfortable with being put under anesthesia again. Charlotte loved pretending to be an elephant with her mask!
The picc line placement went well, and Charlotte was back in our room by 4pm. She complained about not feeling good, and I thought that she was going to throw up a couple of times, but her tummy finally calmed down.
It wasn’t long before Charlotte’s doctors came to visit us, and then by a little after 7pm, we were on our way out of the hospital!
It was so nice to see both of my kiddos playing together at HOME on Saturday morning!
Charlotte’s medical supplies and antibiotics were delivered Saturday afternoon, and a nurse also came by to teach me how to administer Charlotte’s antibiotics through her IV. I’ve given them to her twice already with no issues, so hopefully the rest of Charlotte’s time on antibiotics will go easy.
She will finish up with antibiotic treatment on Wednesday, and will have the picc line removed on Friday along with a follow up ultrasound to check her kidneys.
Thank you all for your sweet words, messages, and prayers throughout this entire ordeal. Hopefully we will be seeing doctors a lot less frequently now!
