We're Home!!

Yeah!!! We were discharged this morning and are SO glad to be home. Kaylyn is feeling great with very little pain and is back to her usual spunky self. So far the oral antibiotics are agreeing with her. We go back next week to have the drain removed and then this whole ordeal will be behind us. Here are a few pics from our days at Hotel de Children's....
Poor baby. She felt pretty rotten.
She did manage a smile for the camera

This is what caused all of the problems. It's a little hard to see in the pic, but the outline drawn on her back was where all of the cellulitis was. It was also on her chest. This is the night we were admitted when she couldn't move her shoulder or turn her head to the left side. By the next morning, almost all of the cellulitis was gone and she had much more movement in her shoulder and neck. The problem was the knot directly on her shoulder, which is where the abscess was and where they placed the drain yesterday.

Wishing she could go outside. She was so tired of being trapped in her room.

She kept her hand in this position the ENTIRE time. Didn't even move it in her sleep. The nurses told her she couldn't move it while it was hooked up to the pump (every 8 hours). She took those instructions seriously!

A cookie arrangement from the kids at Mountainview. Thanks guys!
(notice the hand)

Luke came for a visit. He was so happy to see his Sissy. If I didn't know better, I would think think they missed each other ;). Seriously, Luke was really worried about her. He kept asking "are they going to hurt her?" He sounded like he was on the verge of tears.

Off to the OR, just ready to get it over with so she could eat.
