I'm Freeeeeee!

I finally got released from my jail, I mean discharged from the hospital. What an experience! They gave me a brain scan (wasn't supposed to) and gave me another person's IV meds (he had the same last name)...good thing we were on the same med! They didn't report it but I will be contacting risk management tomorrow. Our health care system is scary. I do feel better...I will give them that. If you pump a girl with so many drugs her body has to respond. My skin is starting to itch and scab. I shouldn't be contagious after Saturday. YEA!

I also found out my daughter has two heart defects: AVSD & Tetralogy of Fallot. It makes for a more complicated surgery. The doctor said that he is taking her case to conference on Tuesday to make a plan of action and that I should anticipate surgery in the next few weeks. Hopefully by then, NO POX!

I want to thank everyone who has prayed, visited me, taken care of my child during my illness! You rock and I'm blessed!

I am just glad to be at my mom's house. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be home again!

OMG! I can't believe they gave you the wrong meds! Just goes to show you - you think the hospital is "good", because it's all fancy-schmancy. I'm glad you are going to report it...maybe it will cause them to look at everything more closely, so that they won't make the same mistake later.

I'm so glad you are out, and I'm looking forward to when Grace gets all fixed up! She is SUCH a funny girl, and SO sweet!!!

Rest up this weekend!
