Tuesday update.. Oh wait it's Wednesday.

Jem is doing better by the day. In fact there's a possibility of release this week. The physicians had discussed release tonight but upon listening to her swallow and the subsequent coughing and choking that ensued the Doctors decided she should be watched for another day at least. Because of this choking there's a risk of Aspiration Pneumonia. This is a common side effect of infantile botulism. I'm finding the days are running together. The solitude is odd and I am keenly aware of a 9 person shaped hole in my heart. I'm thankful it's filled every day by my 8 beautiful children at home and my best friend! I know the dear ones at home miss me too. It will be so immensely pleasing to me to be reunited with them all again. My heart swells as I type about it. We all have so very much to be thankful about. I see it as a great mercy of The Lord to be reminded of that fact. Hope to update again soon.

It is amazing to have found you. Our son had infant botulism and went into the hospital on November 23rd as well. I am assuming you are home now. We are located in Maryland so not to far away. My email is bnjohnson@bcps.konetwo.maryland.us. I will send a friend request on facebook.
