Casey Jo Hospital Update # 4

On Sunday, Casey Jo had a few visitors! Dad, our Aunt Kelly and I went up so that I can stay with her and give our mom a break. Can't forget Hemi! He got to visit too! Her friend Brad came up, and her former co-worker, Michael and his girlfriend, Sarah, also came and brought pizza and flowers! 
Today, her friend Megan came and got to spend the afternoon reminiscing on the 'old times' 
They also started her IV medicine back up today! She has started eating a little so we are happy with that progress!

Casey Jo Hospital Update #3

Today was a better day for Casey! She stayed awake most of the day! She also walked a few laps around her floors unit and ate a little bit of a quesadilla!! 
Her lab results came in, and she has no kidney damage.  Praise the lord!!! They are still going to flush out her kidneys with the plain IV drip for a while longer before putting her back on the IV meds.
Thanks for all the sweet comments & prayers!!!

Casey Jo Hospital Update #2

The past few days were pretty uneventful for Casey Jo. The Colistin (antibiotic) she is on makes her very sleepy. She sleeps pretty much all day. Today, unfortunately, she had a set back.

When doing her lab work, they discovered her Vancomycin trough (Test that monitors her vanc antibiotic therapy) was too high. Since both the Colistin and Vanc levels are high, it can be damaging her kidneys. Both antibiotics have been stopped. They are just doing Zosyn (yes, ANOTHER antibiotic) and an IV fluid drip for a couple of days to flush out her kidneys. Poor thing still has no appetite.
Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and prayers.  Casey Jo loves reading them and they really brighten her day!

Casey Jo Update...Back in the Hosptial!

Well, Casey Jo has been feeling very short of breath again lately, even while sitting doing nothing! She was on an inhaled antibiotic but that didn't seem to help, so she was switched to an oral antibiotic and has gotten even worse. So when she told her nurse, Sue, she said to come in for a hospital stay and get on IVs. She'll be in the hospital for 3 weeks as she is on 3 different IVs and the one IV she's on she has to stay in the hospital the whole dose (like back in January.)  Her appetite is still not good... at all. She lost a few more pounds since her last clinic visit last month. 
Today when she was admitted they drew a blood gas to check if there is too much CO2 in Casey's lungs. The results said there is an increase but nothing outrageous. 
Then she got a PICC line placed this evening and here are a few pictures!
Getting set up for the PICC line!

Looking on the ultrasound machine for a vein.

Streaming the wire to make sure the PICC will go through. It kept getting stuck in the bend of her armpit but after a BUNCH of arm positions it finally pushed through!
