Quick Update from Kristin: September 23rd, 2008

Taylor has been out of the ICU for several days now. The chest tube was removed a few days ago. We have not been able to return home yet, though. She is still receiving IV antibiotics for the three infections that she developed while neutropenic.

She has a particularly bad ear infection that needs to be treated for three weeks with antibiotics. The only antibiotics which work for it have to be given through her IV, and that may or may not be possible to do at home.

We are also not up to speed on her feedings. They have been increasing her vet slowly.

We have chemo on Friday and the whole process starts over again. Unfortunately, we may be here for another two weeks!
