Casey Jo Update: Finally Home!!!!

Casey got to go home today!!!!! 
She had a nice surprise before she left, our cousin Misty & Brady had a cookie bouquet delivered to her!!! It probably won't last long since her appetite is getting better!!!
 
 
She finally got to see her doggie!!! They were both excited! 

 
She will be on home IV's for at least another week. She has to go back to Cleveland for a check up in a week to check her breathing and to get her Mickey-Button changed.
Her IV's come in pressurized bottles so she doesn't have to be hooked up to a pole all the time. 


She is on 3 different IV antibiotics, Zosyn, which is every 6 hours, Tobramycin, which is every 24 hours, and Vancomycin, which is every 12 hours with Benadryl. 
The bottles have a balloon in them that will deflate the medicine into her.
Here's a before picture:

And here is after, when the drug has been infused. Each one goes in over about an hour.


Before and after each drug is infused, she has to flush her PICC line so there is no clotting.


I just want to thank each and every one of you for all your prayers, kind words, and/or good vibes!!!!! Casey and our whole family really appreciate all of your support! 
It really lifts her spirits when she reads every lovely comment!
