It is official…our three week hospital sentence has been reduced to two weeks. Call it early release for good behaviour because Addison is well on the road to a full recovery. She has been off oxygen for 84 hours now and her oxygen saturation is rocking at 96-97%. The infectious disease team has agreed to just two weeks of IV meds, followed by one week oral. It took much prodding and poking (including annoying questions from a nosy reporter mom who did a lot of internet research at home) to get a straight answer from them. There hasn’t been a case of PCP in so long no one really knows what is the best protocol. Trust Addison to be a trailblazer…again!
The princess has been getting cabin fever so we have been busy on mini excursions around the hospital – she loves going up and down in the elevators and visiting the giant Halloween tarantula in the lobby. The princess thoroughly enjoys riding in the old school pram (which belongs to the ward) and doing the queenly wave at the passing people. She may be having a grand time on her hospital stay-cation, but her tired parents are counting down the days until we get to go home. Seven more sleeps!
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
