Light At The End

Today we see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Vera is once again able to breathe on her regular mask that we use at home.

Now it's mainly to manage her fever (yes still) and residual secretions (which may take another 1-2 weeks of suctioning to clear, so it's still early days to discharge).

It's been a month now for us at the hospital. The longest stretch ever.

Looking back, we have had so much support to tide us through this very intense experience - our families, our friends, the Ronald McDonald House Charities, and most of all the very caring and excellent team of doctors and nurses in NUH PICU.

Thank you all!

Thinking of you and sweet Vera. I have been reading your blog for a while and I love the way you write. I'm sending positive thoughts your way and hoping that Vera is home where she belongs soon!

Oh my goodness! I didn't know Vera was in the hospital for so long. My heart goes out to you and your family. Twelve days with Lily was tough. Hang in there, mama! I'm glad to hear that you've got some good support behind you! My prayers go out for Vera and you!
