We Are HOME!!!

We got home about 30 minutes ago and it feels so great to be in our comfortable house. I was getting cabin fever in that teeny tiny hospital room. I've only got a minute to write so I'll give a brief update. The nose culture came back with 3 different bacteria growing in her nose but they are all normal so her antibiotics should knock it all out. She is still coughing quite a bit but we will just continue on her nebulizer and Omnicef for now.

There is one concern for now and we could use all the positive thoughts in the world right now. Dr. Mahesh has been thinking about Emma and all of her problems and along with Dr. Dudley they want Emma to be tested for Cystic Fibrosis tomorrow. Neither doctor thinks she has it but they just want to rule it out. Apparently a symptom is a chronic cough. So tomorrow we will go to outpatient at the hospital and they will do a sweat test on Emma's arm. I believe they are testing her levels of chloride. We should get the results back tomorrow afternoon. So of course, I am super antsy about this but I'm trying to stay positive. In order for her to have this George and I both have to be carriers and I recently had a really long blood workup done and I can't be positive that CF was ruled out but I think that gene was. So continue to think of us and Miss Emma tomorrow.

I also plan on going back to work tomorrow. I kind of forgot that I am a working woman now! George's parents are coming down to help him out with Emma and he will probably return to work on Friday. I've got tons of housework to catch up on but for now I just want to get tomorrow over with and make it to the weekend.

Hopefully I will update tomorrow evening. Pictures to come I promise!
