Miriam and the doctor agreed it would be best to leave Emma in the hospital for at least another night.
Miriam says Emma has been doing better this aftenoon – more playful and relaxed. So long as she’s doing at least as well tomorrow, and her lungs clear up a bit more, they may be able to come home tomorrow.
Please pray that she won’t relapse again. This may be something we have to fight all winter, but it would be nice to keep her at home most of the time.
The pneumonia hasn’t been affecting her growth though – she was up to 12 lbs 5 oz on Monday! That’s about double the normal growth rate, and if it continues for another couple of weeks she’ll be back on the charts in the “normal” weight for her weight (though at the very bottom of the range).
