ALMOST HOME

Murron was quite chipper yesterday.
She didn’t have a temperature but as she had the fan on and the window open and was still feeling hot and clammy while I froze for the afternoon, I’m not so sure!!!

Anyway, we got through 3 chick flicks together.
Bridget Jones’s Diary, Bride Wars and Benny and Joon.

I love Benny and Joon. It’s been so long since I’ve seen it.
One of my favourite Johnny Depp movies. He’s adorable in it!

Anyway, as Murron was looking better we enquired about her chances of being moved onto oral antibiotics and sent home.
So the Doctors were called and they came to review.
We didn’t quite get the answer we were looking for.
After 48 hours of IV antibiotics her CRP (infection markers that should be under 5) had gone up from just 21 to 159!
That couple with the fact that her blood cultures hadn’t come back yet meant that they wanted her to stay on IV antibiotics until they got the culture results.
So I had to leave her for a 4th night.

At about 21:30 last night I received a text saying that she was being moved.
Being Murron, she didn’t ask where or why so I told her to find out and let me know.
She was told that when A&E get busy they move the healthier patients who are close to discharge to the ward she was moved to.
I’m hoping this means that the cultures came back negative and after a blood test this morning that should ‘hopefully’ show signs of the CRP coming down, she’ll be let home.

We’ll see.
Otherwise, it will be another movie marathon this afternoon.
