Day 4 (I think)

Losing track of time a bit here.

A really good day today - look no tube! Cannula out and morphine replaced with ibuprofen. In her own words "Yay! I got my hand back!"

We had to celebrate both that and the third clear MRSA swab in a row by taking a tour of the hospital this afternoon; highlight being watching an ambulance restock and drive off.

A short visit to the schoolroom this morning, whilst Mummy made use of the decontamination chamber up in RMH. No showers for the Princess until the femoral line comes out, but maybe that won't be too long now.

Most favourite object this wonderful blue book, holding artwork and messages from all her classmates. Naming them all is great distraction therapy, and the nurses are all very very impressed with the beautiful drawings and lovely free writing.

All on course to get over to Helen House on Monday we hope.

so pleased that LP is on the mend. Ike tried to scare us with a fever yesterday, but we conquered it and it has not returned today. We are grateful.

I am just amazed at her recovery so far...I know the road still looms long before her, but this is a good start, I do believe! :)

Yea!! She looks great PTL
continued prayers for a speedy recovery--or maybe it should be for an uneventful recovery too.
