It’s been 10 days since Jody was admitted to Johns Hopkins, and he is finally home! The last few days progressed as we had hoped; uneventful. His nebulizers, physical therapy & chest PT’s were all well tolerated. There were no more episodes of bleeding. His pain is gone, and although not perfect, his breathing is better, just like the doctors predicted would happen with time post embolization. Jody will continue to do another week of IV antibiotics here at home, and will begin pulmonary rehab a few weeks after that. We have a follow-up appointment in the CF clinic next week.
Once again we want to thank everyone for the support we received. We enjoy reading your comments and knowing that you are praying for us. Thank you for the phone calls, visits, meals, help with babysitting, gas gift card, and to those who contributed to our extra special blessing from Victory Church, we don’t even know who you are, but thank you nonetheless. This support makes going through a difficult time, a little less difficult. We know that the road ahead of us is going to be hard, and that hospitalizations will most likely become more frequent. We will need your continued support to help us through those hard times, and we hope you are up for the challenge.
