Today was the best day yet. She was happy and comfortable most of the day. She still has the itching going on and the thought is that it is the yeast still in her body or the liver enzymes/bile acids causing this.
The good news is we have a culture that was taken on Dec.1st and by tomorrow hopefully will still show no growth. That means we can have our central line placed. It is scheduled for 2 p.m. The plan is that if they can say she is stable with no growth in her blood and that the central line is place then we will be transported home. That is huge and Dr. B is waiting to accept us at our home hospital.
I am trying to load pictures from today. Most every day here at TCH during the Christmas season there is something Christmas going on. Couple days ago the little tree with the pink ornaments was given to us. Yesterday the Sesame Street Puppet show was given in our room and today this group came and passed out Christmas gifts. No not just one or two, but like six or more gifts. This does help bright a day when you don't have much else to do.
Jillian and her mom, Monica, also came to visit from Beaumont. She brought Annabel a best friends necklance and she is wear one also. We enjoyed our day with my girls and friends.
We are so thankful that Annabel seems to have fared well with this infection. As quick as she gets sick, she can recover so quickly. I really don't want to have this central line place due to high risk of infection again, but at this point we have no choice. This hospital stay has been the worst ever. I hate to complain but never had I felt that I had to fight for everything, big and small at this hospital. When meeting with the resident tonight she said they consider my hospital stay as sloppy. She admitted many things happening and that the hospital is in transition (new one being built in West Houston). I have noticed such a difference since last summer when we were here.
Again, thank you for your prayers and your comments.
