A New Day

I just got off the phone with Shawn, and Clare Bear is feeling much better. She woke him up at 4:30 this morning with, "Daddy, I feel better!" Her fever is gone and her heart rate is back in the 120s. She is still a little puffy and has the rash, but the doctors are pretty convinced it is a reaction to something in the anesthesia and not a fluid build-up. Shawn said her rash looks more pink now than flaming red, so it is improving. Clare was eating a little breakfast when I called, so if she keeps that down, she will probably be discharged today.

I am going to take Jamie to his allergy shots this morning then head back to Children's. Hopefully to bring Clare back home with me! (Oh, yeah, and Shawn, too!)
