Mim news

Miri is finally doing better, she's up and moving, off the IV, and getting back to her usual bouncy self. Now the fun will be keeping her mellow while she's stuck in the hospital a few more days! Not sure yet what the plan for removing the drainage tube in her neck will be.

It feels like all I do is ask for hand outs (yes, I can hear people nodding, and I'm sure the anonymouses will happy be all snarkeriffic)- but Miri's hospital stay has chewed through the budget (especially gas money, ugh!), and today we discovered one of the van's tires needs replaced asap. (Fraking Murphy). So I'm asking if people could please toss 5-10$ at paypal, and spread the word, so we can get through this latest roadbump. *sigh*. elerihamilton at gmail dot com.

Miri in Hospital

Heyo, all. Just a quick summary report on the Mousie. She'd been fighting an ear infection since early May, and was still struggling after 2 rounds of basic antibiotic. On MOnday she had a swolen, stiff neck, so we headed to the ER.

They did a CT scan, found abscessing, and did surgery to clean it out and put in a drain. However, over the last couple days, her fever isn't responding like they'd hope- so they went in for another CT and more surgery.

The Dr's are worried that they aren't finding what they should be (puss and dead tissue) with her fever still high (it keeps spiking up to 104), so they put in a second drain to try and get more air in-gunk out.

We're betting right now that she won't be out before the weekend. We're at Seattle Children's, G-3008 if people want to send her cards. She loves mail :)
