Minor Setback

We are inpatient at the local hospital. Emery picked up a bacterial pneumonia, the doctors think, so a couple of days on iv antibiotics will hopefully take care of it. the nice thing is that it was caught very early, at our post op appointment this morning, and she has been able to have her brothers come play and ad stories and a couple of her aunties have stopped by to see her, and dad held her hand while getting blood drawn plus she is hoping he brings her ice cream after her nap time. Not too shabby!

Our cardiologist has been on the phone and is monitoring her from a distance which has been great. She is on low oxygen which is really helping and has a private room since pneumonia needs to be isolated;). I think the plan is for her to be inpatient for a couple days on the antibiotics, get off oxygen and then go home. We shall see. IP am grateful that it was caught and treated very early, she was fine yesterday, and so she will be on the mend soon.
