Home at last

Cassie was discharged today around 1pm. The swelling on her lip has almost completely disappeared. Before discharging her, they needed to know what kind of backeria had set up shop in her lip. The lab results showed it was nothing too bad, so they sent her home with a 14-day course of antibiotics. This is more of the same stuff she was getting through her I.V.

She's upstairs sleeping the sleep of kings (OK, "princesses") at the moment. We'll let her nap as long as she needs. She didn't get much sleep at the hospital. That's one of life's great ironies: a hospital is no place to be if you're sick.

Now we're home, so hopefully we can get back the groove around here.
