Lazy Sunday

Here is some exciting news: JULIANNE MIGHT GET DISCHARGED TOMORROW! We would still have to stay in the area until her follow-up visit later in the week, but I think she'll be thrilled just to be out of the hospital!! We have our flight home scheduled for Friday, so hopefully we'll make that!! Tomorrow's discharge depends on her chest x-ray, lab results and if Dr. Breitbart says she's good to go! We certainly want to make sure she's ready. We don't want to leave just to come right back up here again. No matter how much we'd (that includes Julianne) like to head home, we want what's safest for Julianne. The fluid in her chest looked better again, so they were able to drop one dose of the Diurel (a diuretic). Please join us in praying that the fluid will continue to dry up and that tomorrow's chest x-ray will be even better.

We did more playing today and even met up with some "heart friends" from Louisiana when they arrived this evening. It was a rainy day here today so we didn't really get any garden time. We did walk out onto a smaller garden for a few minutes though.

Balancing on her ball (her therapists would be so proud)

Thanks for checking in on us! I hope that tomorrow at this time I'll be typing, "We're all at the Devon Nicole House!" We're thanking God for another great day and praying for continued healing for Julianne. Thank you for all of your sweet words! It always brightens our day.
