Vera Comes Home

After 2 weeks in hospital, Vera is finally home. We were so happy, as if we were bringing a newborn back from the hospital.

However, her doc has told us that it will take another 2 weeks for the secretions to clear completely. So she's better off resting at home. She will have to miss school in the meantime.

There will be follow-up visits - plus another hospital stay within a month's time, for a sleep study to get the suitable settings for her BiPAP, and a ph probe to determine if she indeed has reflux.

We hope to settle down quickly into our new BiPAP routine during sleep time. And hopefully, we'll all get a good night's sleep from now on!

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers to get Vera well and back home.
