We Are Home...


After 3 nights in the hospital, we are home finally! Isabelle was given green light to go home. :)

Thank you for all your kind wishes and prayers, my friends!

Here's some sneakpeek of what happened in the hospital throughout the 3 nights 4 days, besides me enjoying the surprisingly delicious food (for hospital standard) and was always waiting for the delivery staff to send in the food trays 4 times a day.

1st Evening & 2nd day
~Isabelle was given 4 hourly nebuliser treatments including midnight.

2nd & 3rd day
~ Doctor reduced nebuliser treatments to 6 hourly.
~ She was given cough syrup to suppress the cough and phlegm in order not to disturb her sleep.

Multitasking - Watching tv while taking her nebuliser treatment

Overall
~ What is best is, she didn't even need antibiotics and was only given cough syrup twice throughout the whole stay. We were a bit skeptical when we see no antibiotics prescribed. Doctor convinced us that Isabelle does not need it and true enough, she didn't need it at all.
~ No IV and drip required.
~ Isabelle was such so cooperative she didn't struggle at all when given the nebuliser mask and she even help herself by holding it.

Conclusion
~ Isabelle is recovering well and is happy to be home
~ I am tired, sleepy but happy because my little baby is alright and I can sleep throughout the night without the nurses coming in to check on Isabelle's temperature every 3 hours. Amen to that!
