A day of possibilities
Things are moving right along. This morning Chloe put together her hope beads, ate breakfast, got a chest x-ray, and took a shower. All her IV lines came out and the stickers that were on her tummy that the leads were hooked up to (for monitoring heart rate, oxygen levels, etc.) were all taken off. Her chest x-ray looked very good, and a prescription for pain medication that we will take home with us has been filled at the pharmacy here. So right now we are waiting for some discharge instructions and, of course, papers to sign. Chloe was very cheerful and alert this morning, but after all the activity, she is tired again. We will update again once we know more details, and hopefully we will be able to add some more pictures then - there is a problem again with the wireless connection. Please keep little Eric in your prayers too - he is the 5 year old who had surgery the same morning as Chloe, and we prayed with his mom in the waiting room. His chest tubes came out yesterday and he might get to go home today, which his mom is very excited about. Thanks!
