No News is Good News

Last night Cassie began receiving her antibiotic through the traditional I.V., we are pleased to report that she did NOT experience the burning sensation they thought she would. In fact, she slept right through both rounds last night and has been her fun loving self all day.

All good signs in anticipation of test results that we are waiting for tomorrow morning. If her inflammation levels come down we'll know that the PICC line was the only problem. If they go up the Surgeons will have to decide whether to take her back to the O.R. for another irrigation procedure. We are also waiting on blood cultures, if they don't grow, we will know the blood infection has cleared up. It just takes time so we are playing the waiting game.

  1. The "waiting game" is the worst game of all but, you're news is good news especially in the hospital. It sounds like Cassie is a pretty good "thermometer" on how things are going. As long as she keeps smiling and sleeping and eating good, you've got it made. We'll keep praying for her (I added her name to the Temple Prayer Roll again on Wednesday), I know she'll beat this thing.
