Emily’s IgG infusion was finished, her Broviac lines were flushed with heparin, and we were able to walk out of the ICU about 4:30 Sunday afternoon. It felt sooooo good to be able to breathe without a mask over our faces! Almost the best part of going home! Almost —-
We are hoping – and praying – that this IgG infusion will start Emily on the road of fewer hospital stays. We offer a huge Thank You to her nurses in the ICU, who had to listen to Emily’s tantrums several times, especially during the last 24 hours, as she started to feel a little better and a little less willing to stay confined to a bed and monitors and her room. We know they are well aware of sick children and how they can act, but they showed a lot of patience in helping us care for Emily. Thank you — you made our stay more pleasant.
