On the Mend

No more fevers, no more vomiting, no more funny heart rhythms - Clare is on the mend! The pediatrician yesterday said she was not dehydrated and ran a couple EKGs which were faxed down to Boston. The docs there said the EKGs were at baseline for Clare, so all was good.

Today, Clare is ten times more improved than yesterday, but she is still very tired. She ate some dinner last night and started walking again this morning , so we know she is feeling better. Her cath site in her groin is still bleeding, though, so we want her to take it easy for the next few days, so that clots properly. We're getting back to normal.

Photos: 1-Morning of her cath, Clare is fascinated by the big fish tank in the lobby of Children's Hospital.
2-After swallowing her "happy drink," Clare chills out in her cool get-up.
3-Post-cath, Clare snuggled with Elmo until she fell asleep.
4-Wearing more cool shades from the hospital, Clare is waiting to be discharged.
